Whole Wheat bread recipe

First mix:

2 C whole wheat flour (I like Wheat Montana)
4 t yeast
1/3 C vital wheat gluten
2 1/2 C hot water

Then let sit for 10 minutes to rise (sponge)


1/3 oil
1/3 honey
1 t salt
4 t lemon juice

Once this is beat in, add an additional 2 whole wheat flour.  Knead with your mixer for 10 minutes or more.  Mine's motor starting getting hot so I stopped around the 10  minute point.  Then shape into 2 loaves and put into greased and parchment paper lined bread pans.  Rise in a warm oven for 30 minutes, turn the oven on to 350 and let them bake for 30 more.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oat Flour

1/2 C plus 2 T butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1 eggs
1 t vanilla
3/4 t baking soda
3/4 t salt
2 1/2 C oat flour
1 1/2 C chocolate chips

Refrigerate dough 2 hours.  Then shape into cookies.  I make double chocolate cookies by swapping 1/3 C of cocoa for some of the flour.

((To make oat flour I simply pour old fashioned oats into my Vitamix blender for a few minutes))

Bake at 350 for 10 min
