Whole Grain Surprises

I remember when I was little my mom went through a phase where she baked out of a heart healthy cookbook for awhile. There were bran muffins and whole wheat breads. They were good but all seemed a little heavy. I always thought whole grain was akin to cardboard. Then recently I was (luckily) invited to help test out recipes for the newest project from Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes. As far as I know the title is yet to be decided but it is an all whole grains baking book and everything and I mean EVERYTHING is amazing! These two super duper people are busy developing some of the most delicious sweet and savory baked goods, quick breads, tarts, granolas and breads I have ever eaten. I have been stuffing my face with them for the past few weeks and realizing I can make much better baked goods at home with these recipes than I can buy. They are full of whole grains (amaranth, barley, corn, quinoa, rye, spelt, wheat, etc) and are using no refined white sugar either! I have been taking pictures along the way and wanted to share some with you here. I will keep you updated on it as it comes along about the title and when it will be out. Trust me, you will want a copy of this book when it does!

From Top to Bottom, Left to Right: English Muffin Loaf, Cran-Apple Crumble Pie, Speculoos Donuts (recipe is posted on Celine's blog), Pretty and Wheat Pretzels, Pita Bread, Tortillas, Tapenade and Bean Buns, Chocolate Raspberry Tart, Hazelnut Shortbread Fingers, To Each Their Own Kale Quiches and Cracked Wheat Pan Rolls.
