So for the past few months we've been using our wheat grinder to grind wheat for our bread, and that, along with reading this book has made me want to try and reduce refined flours and sugars and such. I'm not really up to a complete overhaul, being a sugar fiend, but I would like to take baby steps to a healthier, less refined (does that make it more boorish?) diet. To that end, I thought I'd try making cookies with whole wheat flour. I found this recipe for whole wheat oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. It makes a crispy cookie, but they are quite good and got thumbs up from the kids, David & I. Yes, it still has refined sugars, but at least the flour is whole wheat. Like I said, baby steps.
