Have you tried using sprouted flour? Perhaps you’re just experimenting with a new bag of Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour? It is hands-down my favorite new flour to work with. There are several brands to choose from including King Arthur Sprouted Wheat Flour, One Degree Organic Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour, or what I prefer, from a local store.
Where to find bulk whole wheat spouted flour?
A few years ago, my sister-in-law, spotted some sprouted whole wheat flour while at an Amish store in Indiana. My sister-in-law planned to purchase some and asked if I wanted some as well! I could not turn down an offer for sprouted flour at only $2 a pound ! Even if I live 3 states away!
Sister Shawna brought the flour to me the next time she came to visit Kansas and I fell in love with the stuff! I had to find a way to get it locally! Later, I called around to the mom and pop shops in the area and a few could order it for a pretty penny. I finally called the Mennonite grocery store in the town where I usually shop. Low and behold, I could order a 25 pound bag for around $2/pound! I quickly texted my Trim Healthy Mama friends and sisters-in-law. I was pumped! The last place I called had it at a great price! I have ordered it several times and I will continue to order!
So–my suggestion is to call your local businesses that may carry or be willing to order Whole Wheat Sprouted Flour. Let me know if you find a place and we can celebrate together! If 25 pounds sounds like WAY too much, split an order with a friend or relative!
Waffles is one of my go-tos around our house. I like to add variety into my children’s meals, so they get to eat my pancakes and waffles quite often. The problem is, I don’t want to eat plain old white flour waffles. Do you struggle with making several different breakfasts under one roof?? The great thing, is that my kids will eat sprouted flour recipes! They usually cringe at strange textured egg type waffles, BUT they will eat my healthy sprouted wheat waffles! YAY! I only have to make one breakfast for everyone! Well, actually my husband eats eggs and sausage EVERY day, but I just can’t do that! Total burn-out, if I attempted to eat that all the time!
Some of the toppings I like to make are a simple blueberry syrup, quadruple berry syrup or my new white pudding syrup. The white pudding is a sauce I grew up eating containing basically sugar and white flour. It was an old Mennonite recipe handed down. I came up with a new, updated sugar-free version listed below.
Yummy Sugar-Free Toppings
Sugar-Free White Pudding
1 1/2 cups of almond milk, 1/4 cup sprouted flour, 1/3 cup of Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet, dash of salt and 2 Tbsp of butter. In sauce pan, wisk flour into almond milk, add the additional ingredients, and boil! Stir until thickened! Easy peasy!
Quadruple Berry or Blueberry Sugar-Free Syrup
One cup of frozen berries or frozen blueberries (Great Value is what I use) add 2 Tbsps of Trim Heathly Mama Gentle Sweet into a saucepan. stir until sweetener is dissolved. Pour over the top of waffles. Mmmmm so good!
