Delicious Whole Grain Waffles

Delicious Whole Grain Waffles

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past 2 years since I started this blog, it’s that homemade foods are often simpler than they appear.  I grew up on Eggo frozen waffles, with the occasional homemade version from Bisquick (until one day my dad decided the ancient, caked-on waffle maker was just way tooRead More

Coconut Granola Bars

Most of you are probably unaware, but I have been obsessively making various kinds of granola and protein bars for months.

Wholesome Monster Cookies

Wholesome Monster Cookies

In the last few months I have become obsessed with finding healthy muffin recipes so that I can always have wholesome snacks around.  But muffins can’t be the only kind of wholesome snack, right?  On my lookout for other ideas, and I came across this recipe for “Super-Charge Me!

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

A few months back, I posted a recipe for Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes that are absolutely delicious – light, fluffy, and sweet.  The only problem is that they achieve this by including half all-purpose flour along with the whole wheat.  I tried remedying this by using all whole wheat pastry flour in the same recipe,Read More
