Whole Wheat Flour is back!

Image
ALDI has whole wheat flour right now for $2.75 for a 5 lb. bag. I like to stock up for the year so that I make sure I have enough till it comes back. This is way cheaper than the price at other stores in my area. So what to do with whole wheat flour?

Whole Wheat Waffles 
Crust for Quiche (just swap whole wheat for the all-purpose flour in this recipe)
Whole Wheat Pancakes (coming soon)
Whole Wheat Tortillas (100 Days Recipe)
Whole Wheat Bread (coming soon)
Rolled Pie Crust (coming soon)
Whole Wheat Pinwheel Rolls (coming soon)


A few tips for baking with whole wheat:

Use a sifter before measuring so you don't over measure.Let whole wheat flour sit in the wet ingredients to soften. I use this with pancake and waffle batter.Whole wheat yeast recipes will take longer to rise than when you use all-purpose flour so give them time or switch to fast-acting yeast when you work with whole wheat flour.
