What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.
|Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies|

I know what you're thinking, another chocolate chip cookie. Upon further inspection you will notice that this one has a third less sugar than our other chocolate chip cookie recipes. Not that those are particularly high in sugar. We just wanted to see how far we could push the envelope and still make a delicious cookie with great texture and flavor.
Reducing the sugar in a cookie will often compromise the texture. Not this time. We've somehow found a balance that allows this cookie to develop a nice crispy edge that yields to a slightly chewy center. The tart cherries work beautifully, giving additional natural sweetness and great complexity.
As always, our cookies are made with whole grain flour. We also add some rolled oats for more whole grain goodness. The result is nutritious and delicious. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
