BREADS AND MUFFINS

NUT BUTTER WAFFLES

Posted by Dina-Marie Oswald on

For years, whole wheat pancakes and waffles have been our standard breakfast. For variety, nuts, bananas, raisins and even chocolate chips were added. I thought we were eating such a healthy, hearty breakfast! We would have been if the flour had been  properly prepared. Unfortunately, I had never heard about phytic acid or lectins in whole grain. I did not know that these antinutrients could be neutralized through soaking, sprouting or fermenting. This could certainly explain some of my intestinal problems and for sure my loss of bone density at such an early age! Anyway, we had them every morning, except Sundays...

PUMPKIN BREAD OR MUFFINS

Posted by Dina-Marie Oswald on

If you have a garden or a source of pumpkins, I hope you have learned how easy it is to prepare pumpkins! Having frozen pumpkin is invaluable when it comes to last minute desserts. Whether it is pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins or  pumpkin pies, desserts are ready in a flash when frozen pumpkin is available. In the winter, we eat a lot of soups and what goes better with soup than bread or muffins? Pumpkin bread is an easy answer to last minute meal additions. And, the aroma created from their baking is mouthwatering! The cinnamon and cloves baking in the...

HOMEMADE BAKING MIX – BISQUICK

Posted by Dina-Marie Oswald on

I have several recipes that call for Bisquick. But, since I have had such amazing results with the GAPS diet and have begun a more traditional diet, I now read labels.

Homemade Bisquick is made with minimal ingredients. In fact, there are only 4 – flour, baking powder, salt and tallow. Once mixed together, the homemade Bisquick will keep for 3 – 6 months especially if it is kept refrigerated. If you family is like...

WHOLE WHEAT PANCAKES

Posted by Dina-Marie Oswald on

Whole wheat pancakes tend to be heavy but the following recipe is not! Making your own, rather than using a store bought mix, is both economical and healthier. Whether you use fresh ground or store bought flour, this is a great recipe! We buy enough whole wheat berries in bulk to last for one year and store them in 5-gal buckets with oxygen absorbers. As needed, we grind the wheat berries to make flour and use it fresh. This way we have the nutritional benefits of fresh ground flour and the economical savings of buying at a reduced price of...

BISCOTTI

Posted by Dina-Marie Oswald on

As you may already know, biscotti is a nut flavored biscuit and comes from the Tuscan cantucci. Cantucci is a crunchy nut flavored biscuit that is often made with almonds or hazelnuts. Ad Do you ever splurge and buy yourself some biscotti? I admit that I have on occasion. But, if you are like me, the price keeps me from enjoying it as often as I would like to! Oh, I have tried several recipes for biscotti but somehow they never turn out quite right! What a disappointment after all the work that goes into some recipes! But, I have...
