I’m assuming you all have noticed that we eat only whole grains in our home.
But “Whole grain flour is expensive,” you say.
Well, today, have I got a way for you to save money on your rice flour, oat flour, corn flour, and more.
Our whole grain adventure started about twelve years ago, while living in Oklahoma.
I started baking my own whole wheat bread (this was in our pre-gluten-free days), and I was buying whole wheat flour off the shelves.
Eventually, when I realized how much money I could be saving by grinding my own grain, we saved up and purchased a grain mill.
We still had some of our “store bought flour” bread left after baking a new batch of “freshly ground flour” bread.
Boy, oh boy, was there a difference. The store bought flour bread tasted really rancid in comparison.
Why Grind Your Own Whole Grain Flours?
1. For Health – once the whole grains are ground, they start to go rancid more quickly. Once we started grinding our own wheat, we noticed how rancid the store-bought flours that we had been using smelled. Blech.
2. Save Money – whole grain flours are so often more expensive than the grains themselves
3. Save Time – Yes, it takes time to grind your own flour, but you can buy your grains in bulk and grind them as needed. You’ll find yourself needing to shop a lot less often.
4. Save Space – No need to buy both grains and flours. Just buy the grains and grind what you need.
Honestly, our grain grinder is one of the my most valued appliances in our kitchen.
I’ve been using it more lately since the weather is cool and baking is oh-so-much-more-pleasurable when it’s cold outside.
Some of our favorite grain-based recipes include:
- Pumpkin Snickerdoodles
- Soft Pumpkin Cookies (we think these taste like Enjoy Life Brand)
- Quick Drop Biscuits
- Chocolate Chip “Cheesecake”-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes
