As part of the Grain Mill Challenge, today I’m sharing my Multigrain, Whole Wheat Baking Mix recipe using my WonderMill Grain Mill! We have used this recipe non-stop to create the tastiest waffles, pancakes, biscuits and even chicken pot pie! All that with no added chemicals, fillers or preservatives. Here is an excerpt and some pictures from my post.
…”It bothers me that there isn’t much nutrition in Bisquick and it has some weird filler ingredients I’d rather my family not be eating. Once again, making something myself is healthier and cheaper, so here I go!
And now I’ve obtained this fabulous kitchen gadget – enter the WonderMill Grain Mill. I’ve been anxious to use it to make my own whole wheat version then came up with the idea to take it a step further and add 10-grain cereal to it after mastering my Multigrain Wheat Bread Recipe. I bought my whole wheat seeds on Amazon in bulk, and have steadily worked my way through the bags already with just few recipes! To add the 10-grain cereal to the baking mix recipe I found at Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body, I researched how to use it and found on Bob’s Red Mill site (which is the type of cereal I bought) that you must reduce the flour by 20%. So, I’ve written up a recipe that includes that change and will offer you recipes to make berry waffles and chicken pot pie within the next few weeks!”
Before you make it, be sure to grab your best-looking, cutest, sous-chef to help you grind your wheat. It makes the process so much more fun! Gabe is a little bit scared of the Grain Mill while it’s on, so I let him pour in the whole grain before I turn it on, then he scoots back and cautiously watches it work! If his little brother is nearby, he gets scared that he’ll get hurt, so I work to keep them both happy while it runs.
I’ve used the recipes on the back of my Bisquick Mix box to make quite a few things from this mix, but tweak them a bit by not adding any oil, since the butter/margarine adds the oil needed. Of course, you can just buy a bag of whole wheat flour if you don’t have a grain mill. For the full recipe, visit the Grain Mill Wagon.
