Baked Goods Recipes
I tend to like to bake with a range of whole-grain flours. There is a world of flavor and personality beyond the realm of all-purpose white flour - rye flour, quinoa flour, buckwheat flour, teff flour, corn flour, and on and on. Have fun exploring!

Toasty, nutty sable cookies made with whole wheat flour, sliced almonds, currents and salted butter. And a peek at some of my favorite vintage cookie cutters.
This is the recipe you want if you're craving classic banana bread flavor and texture, but want as little mess, drama, and equipment as possible. It's the laziest, one bowl banana bread I know, still with big pay-off.
Figs in focaccia, figs in quick breads, and figs in coffee cake - so many ways you could be baking with figs!
The bread you should make right this minute - yeast-based, farm-style, made from rolled oats and a blend of all-purpose and whole wheat flours.
One bowl baking is the best. These recipes tend to use whole-grain flours, minimal refined sugar, and a single bowl. The frosting bowl doesn't count ;)...
Made using 100% whole wheat flour and hand-chopped chocolate chips, this is a skillet-baked twist on chocolate chip cookies. Spread the dough in an oven-safe skillet, and bake into a single mega-cookie.
Kim Boyce's Rosemary Olive Oil cake- Incredibly moist, golden-crumbed, flecked with rosemary, and dotted throughout with big and small chocolate chunks.
An extra special baked oatmeal - banana, coconut, vanilla, coconut milk, and some winter citrus, all baked into fragrant, golden-topped magic.
A nut-free (school-friendly), double chocolate version of one of the most popular cookies on my site. Made with a banana-batter, shredded coconut, dark chocolate chunks, and oats. Butter-less, flour-less, egg-less, and potentially sugar-less cookies make great after school, travel, or post-workout treats.
A limoncello macaroon recipe along with a batch of photos from a cabin weekend in Mendocino. The cookies are golden-crusted, powder-coated, almond-citrus gems spiked with limoncello liqueur my sister made for me.
