Tips for sneaking food storage wheat into your favorite cookies

If your family is particular and has favorite cookie recipes don’t be afraid to pick a couple out that would hide the wheat well. Here are some tips to help you know which recipe would be right to sneak your food storage wheat into:

1. Any cookie recipe with oats will mask the wheat because the oats already give a “hearty” feel to the cookies

2. Brown sugar in the recipe will mask any extra brown coloring from the wheat and help keep the cookie moist. So a recipe that calls for all brown sugar would be ideal or at least equal parts brown sugar and white sugar.

3. Chocolate is a strong flavor that will mask even the pickiest eaters taste buds.

4. You don’t have to start out replacing all the all-purpose flour with wheat flour. Start out doing 1/2 and 1/2 and work your way up to all wheat flour.

5. Use white wheat. White wheat doesn’t have the strong taste that red wheat has and is much easier hidden in things like cookies.

6. Don’t warn your family before they try it. They will assume that the cookie is how you always make it.

    Do I have to have a wheat grinder to get the wheat to the correct consistency (flour-like) for use in cookies? Where do I buy a wheat grinder? Are they expensive, how big are they, etc. etc.?

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    Lisa,

    I personally have a wheat grinder but I know my brother grinds some of his wheat in his blender. This is what he says about it:

    “I grind wheat dry when I grind it in my blender.

    Be careful not to put too much grain in the blender. While blenders are designed to efficiently process a full jar of liquids, this doesn’t hold for dry ingredients. If you try to process too much dry in your blender, only the bottom portion will get drawn through the blades and ground.”

    The brand of wheat grinder that I have is a K-TEC Kitchen Mill Grinder. It is pretty small (not much bigger than a loaf of bread machine bread) and very easy to use, just pour in the wheat berries and out comes flour. A site that you can go to compare wheat grinders is http://www.waltonfeed.com. Good luck shopping, let me know if you get one!

    Sunday night I decided to make these cookies. We normally don’t eat a lot of cookies but seeing all these cookies over the past few weeks and seeing this one was your favorite so far, I gave in. These cookies made with whole wheat flour, craisens, and white chocolate were so good my
    husband and I finished off the entire pan!

    OKay, I made these cookies today and they are AMAZING!!! I am trying to watch my weight so I only ate one, although I wanted to eat them all, but my kids devoured the rest. We will definitely be making these again and again. And because of the whole wheat flour the one I had stuck with me longer- was more filling. Thanks for the recipe!
