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!

A simple thumbprint cookie recipe. Made with whole wheat pastry flour and oats, and sweetened with honey instead of granulated sugar.
Thin, biscotti-style crackers densely pebbled with all manner of nuts and seeds - green pistachios, rust-toned hazelnuts, and off-black poppy seeds.
The perfect bite-sized chocolate chip cookie. Tiny, thin, golden, crisp, a bit nutty with plenty of shaved chocolate.
These are the ginger cookies you want to make. This ginger cookie recipe is made special with three kinds of ginger and a hint of lemon zest. Cracked and sugar-crusted on the outside, dense and moist within.
My friend Sante shared his hermit recipe with me - a simple, drop-style, spice cookie loaded with tiny currants, chopped walnuts, and finished with a bit of icing.
Favorite, easy pumpkin pie recipe. Made from a rich, roasted pumpkin and coconut milk base, and baked in a hazelnut-lined crust - delicious!
A moist, tender buttermilk cornbread packed with corn kernels and flecked with red pepper flakes. Simple and delicious.
A deliciously unfussy and relatively healthy apple cake recipe. Red-skinned apples punctuate a buttermilk batter and a final sprinkling of sugar before baking lends a nice top crust.
Kids love these animal-shaped cookies. They bake up fragrant, golden and crisp and are made from whole wheat pastry flour, a dollop of coconut oil, shredded coconut, ground walnuts, a touch of salt, and as little sugar as I thought I could get away with.
A wonderful coffee cake recipe made from fresh wild huckleberries using maple syrup as a sweetener instead of white sugar.
