As I continue seeking to make healthier choices for our family, I’m incorporating more whole grains into our diet. Having hosted a giveaway for Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil last month, I was excited about trying a bag of their Certified Organic Soft White Winter Wheat.
I’ll confess that I didn’t realize I would actually be receiving a bag of grain!!! However, I’d been wanting to experiment with grinding my own flour, so this was the perfect opportunity. Since I wasn’t sure what the process would entail, I decided to start by grinding a small amount in a coffee grinder.
I ground enough flour to make a double batch of chocolate oatmeal cookies for my daughters’ lunches. I was pleased with how the grain processed and the cookies turned out well. I then used more of the flour in my first attempt at making Hot Cross Buns, and they were fabulous! For the buns, I did grind the flour twice to get a finer consistency.
