    FINALLY! Been looking forward to this. Thanks for all your research and information over the past months (and months, and…). It’s been so helpful.

  • Michele M.

    I filled out the survey but didn’t check all of them cause I thought they were seperate but I actually should have checked all but 2. How do I fix the entry? Or can you do that for me? Thanks

    Katie Reply:

    Michele,
    The survey is set so that you should be able to go back and redo your own. What happens if you just click the survey link again? Try that and hopefully you can edit. ;) Katie

  • Rebekah

    Woo hoo! This should be fun… praying that I win (seriously). God knows if I truly need it or not. So I’ll be excited to find out. :)

  • amy

    your homemade bread (not sure which one yet, tho – all your trials have looked delish!)….or granola bars!

  • Jessica B

    *My* favorite whole grain recipe is currently the Honey Whole Wheat Sourdough bread from your site. :)

    (My children’s favorite would be their daddy’s pancakes!) :D

  • Amy S

    Not sure if this is in the right place for the 5 extra entries for the Nutrimill. I love baking some really yummy chocolate chip cookies that work so well with 100% whole wheat flour.

  • Megan

    I love that I can just sub whole wheat in for white flour in any brownie recipe! Not the best for us, but the whole wheat does make me feel a little better

  • Holly

    I love my chewy choc chip oatmeal cookies with whole wheat…I’ve had no problems subbed it for the white flour and everyone loves them.

  • WEFA (Jesilee)

    I am enjoying the varieties and flavors of many breads, but I don’t think I could pick just one recipe! I love whole wheat flour, and as my Fiancé just said on the phone to his mom about me entering “if coffee tastes better fresh ground fresh flour will probably be good too”

  • Tammy

    Potpie Crackers

    Combine in large bowl:
    1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
    1 ½ cup unbleached white flour
    ½ tsp. salt

    Cut in with a pastry blender:
    ½ c. butter

    Add:
    2 slightly beaten eggs
    ¼ cup milk

    Stir lightly with fork and form into ball.  Divide dough into 3 parts.  Roll each part out as thinly as possible.  Lay on greased cookie sheets or stoneware and cut into 1″ squares with a pizza cutter or butter knife.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Nice presentation as a side with creamed chicken or any soup.  Keep well on the counter or in the fridge, so they can be made in advance.

    Here’s my recipe for the 5 bonus entries:

    Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins
    (from thefrugalgirl.com, which was adapted from a recipe on moneysavingmom.com)

    4 eggs
    2 cups sugar
    1 (16 oz.) can pureed pumpkin or 16 oz. mashed sweet potato (without butter, salt, or milk)
    3/4 cup milk
    3/4 cup oil
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 package chocolate chips (I often use less when I happen to have only a partial bag)

    In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, milk, and oil until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk dry ingredients together. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients, and stir just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 16-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

    She uses only 1 cup of whole wheat flour but I’ve flip flop the amount she calls for and use 2 cups of whole wheat and 1 cup of unbleached, adding more liquid as necessary. These are SOO yummy!

    Not exactly sure how you’re going to count these entries since there are others here that aren’t related to the 5 bonus recipes…guess we’ll see! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I love the whole wheat tortilla recipe. I use your recipe with an extra 1/4 cup of water to get the right consistency for me. I make them up ahead of time and bake them right before I use them to keep them super soft and delicious! I’m so glad I don’t have to buy store tortillas anymore!

  • Lori Gearheart

    I’d have to say this is my favorite recipe of yours!

    Honey Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread
    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 cups whole wheat sourdough starter
    2 cups whole milk (or even water)
    1/4 cup mild honey
    2 large eggs
    6 cups (divided) whole wheat flour, plus extra for kneading
    2 teaspoons sea salt
    6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature (or coconut oil)

    Method:

    The night before you are going to bake bread, make a sponge by mixing the starter with the milk and 3 cups of flour. Cover and leave at room temperature overnight, or better yet, in the oven with the light on. I always turn the oven on to 350 degrees for one minute exactly when I’m trying to get my sourdough yeast to be most active. Etc.

  • Sarah Dickinson

    my entry is saying that my totally favorite KS recipe is by far the soaked granola! I make a double batch every other week! Thanks Katie! Would love the grinder. I made entries for it oh so long ago as well! Many thanks!

  • Julie

    Almond Bars!

  • Esther N

    I love Kitchen Stewardships granola bars recipe that has whole wheat flour in them!

  • KristinaD

    My entry for the 5 bonus entries:

    I adapted your cracker recipe to be gluten free:

    1 ¼ c. Teff Flour
    1 ½ Tbs. honey
    ½ tsp. salt
    ¼ tsp. paprika
    4 Tbs. coconut oil
    ¼ c. water, hot Plus 1 tbs ground chia seeds
    salt for topping

    Put hot water and ground chia seeds in the food processor until it is gel like. Add rest of liquid ingredients and mix. Add in dry ingredients and mix until dough forms a ball. Add more flour if needed. Roll out, cut, sprinkle with salt, and bake. Mine need to bake 20 ish minutes to be done.

    We love these!

    As a side note I should comment that I have found this recipe to work out far better if you have a cooking scale and actually measure everything.

  • Kate from Kinda Crunchy Kate blog

    I can’t tell if there are already 17 recipes for with whole wheat flour mentioned above since I think some people accidentally didn’t fill out the survey thing and put their comments here. Nevertheless, I’ll still share. :)
    I like to make pumpkin muffins with whole wheat flour. I just made a batch last night. Yum!
    Pumpkin Wheat honey Muffins
    1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 ts ginger
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 tsp cloves
    1/4 tsp allspice
    3/4 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 eggs
    1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1/4 cup coconut oil
    1/2 cup honey
    Optional:
    1/2 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffins tins or put those paper liners in them. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and put in all the wet ingredients and mix just until the dry ingredients are absorbed. Add in the optional ingredients if you are going to use them. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 minutes until cooked through. Makes at least 12 muffins, if not more. (I made 24 mini muffins and 4 normal sized muffins.)
    I’ll be sharing this recipe on my blog on Friday, along with a picture, because it always helps me to have a picture of what I am making.

    One of my fav whole grain flour recipes comes from Heidi Swanson’s 101cookbooks.com:
    Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

    3 cups / 13.5 oz / 380 g whole-wheat flour
    1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt

    8 ounces / 225 g (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, plus more for buttering the pan

    1 cup / 5 oz / 140 g dark brown sugar
    1 cup / 7 oz / 200 g sugar
    2 large eggs
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

    8 ounces / 225 g bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped into 1/4- and 1/2-inch pieces

    Preheat the oven to 350°F / 175°C degree oven, with a rack in the middle. Butter a 10 (25cm) or 11-inch (28cm) ovenproof skillet, one that is at least 2-inches (5 cm) deep. If you’re unsure, measure, because if you use a too small skillet, you’ll have a messy overflow.

    Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl.

    In another large bowl, or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter and the sugars. Mix just until the butter and sugars are blended, about 2 minutes using the mixer on low speed. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl along the way. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until each is combined. Mix in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture to the bowl and blend on low speed until the flour is barely combined, about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.

    Add most of the chocolate to the batter. Mix just until the chocolate is evenly incorporated. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl, then scrape the batter out into the skillet, pressing it out into an even layer. Sprinkle any remaining chocolate across the top, and casually press it into the dough a bit, just enough that it isn’t riding directly on top of the dough.

    Bake the cookies for 35-45 minutes, or until until the dough is a deep golden brown along the edge, and the center has set. Remove from oven and let cool a bit before slicing into. Cute into wedges or small squares.

    Makes one large skillet cookie, which you can cut into as many cookies as you like.
