Multi-Grain Multi-Purpose Flour
I make a multi-grain flour so I can add different nutrients to our plain whole wheat flour. Just make sure you use 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 multi-grain so your recipes will still turn out right. I use whatever grains I have in bulk, which is usually brown rice, oat groats, barley, and millet. In the past I have tried buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa. To be honest the amaranth and quinoa were too strong of flavors so I haven't used them since. This is the blend for the best flavor. Pour into your grain mill 1 cup of each grain, then pour in 4 cups of hard white wheat. Mix them well and pour in a storage container.
I use this flour for any baking items like cookies, brownies, bars, and sweet breads. This is a fun one to experiment with in any recipe calling for flour.
Whole Wheat Flour
Not sure where to get whole grains to grind? Check the bulk section of Winco or your local health food store. I haven't been impressed with the quality of grains purchased at the regular grocery store. Here in Northern Utah I get my grains from Kitchen Kneads. They only carry high quality food items and I love getting it in bulk sizes and prices. You can also purchase a WonderMill while you are there.
