So today's WHOLE FOOD is: Wonder Flour!
What's Wonder Flour?
Wonder Flour was discovered by my Uncle Chef Brad. He is an amazing chef who cooks delicious foods using different types of grains. Wonder Flour is made up of equal parts of the following three grains, ground into flour:
Just combine equal parts of the three grains in a large bowl, mix them together then grind the combination through your grain mill. It works great!
How do I use it?
I love using this flour in desserts and light breakfast foods. It makes the foods become healthier, but not only that I think they taste better too! To adjust a recipe with wonder flour made at home, use about 1/2 cup of more flour for every 3 cups flour that the recipe calls for.
How healthy is it?
I used a nutrition calculator to compare 1 Cup of Wonder Flour with 1 Cup of White Flour. You can see that wonder flour has fewer calories per serving, more potassium, fewer carbohydrates, a LOT more dietary fiber (really good for you!). Of course white flour is enriched so it has some good things in there for you, but you really are missing all the fiber!
