Nine Healthier One-bowl Baking Recipes

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 ;)...

Nine Healthier One-bowl Baking Recipes

One bowl baking is the best. Even better if you can hand mix the batter. Dragging a large mixer onto the counter and then washing and wiping it down, is an effective deterrent. With a lot of these you're literally five minutes from having a cake ready to go in a pre-heated oven.

1. One-Bowl Yogurt and Honey Olive Oil Cake - (The Kitchn)
My favorite kind of cake - humble and unfussy, simple and balanced. Honey-sweetened, and flecked with thyme, I love that it can swing from sweet to savory. Get the recipe here.

5. Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
You can totally make this a one-bowl recipe. Just sift the dry ingredients onto the blended flour/sugar mixture, stir until barely combined. No need to sift first into its own bowl. I use 100% whole wheat flour here, and it's A+! Get the recipe here.

8. Easy One Bowl No-Mixer Yogurt Cake - (Foodie Baker)
A beautiful lemon-kissed, one bowl yogurt cake. Jasline uses all-purposed flour here, but I suspect whole wheat pastry flour, or a 50/50 blend could be nice. Or, maybe even oat flour? Excited to experiment with this one. Get the recipe here.

How might I find desert recipes that contain no sugar, honey or other sweeteners other than fruit?
