Sugar and Spice Snickerdoodle Bars, whole grain delicious!

Sugar and Spice Snickerdoodle Bars. Deliciously made from whole wheat and a spicy treat the whole family will love. Bring healthy and delicious back to the table, enjoy Sugar and Spice Snickerdoodle Bars today!

I have been baking with whole wheat flour for a while now, and have made some pretty tasty food if I do say so myself. I am especially fond of whole-grain, fruit-sweetened quick bread. But each time I take on a new recipe, I wonder why I waited so long to make it! But I do know...I have always been timid when it comes to a major change in my kitchen routine. Making the change to whole wheat baking was not easy, and it was not overnight! I have touched on our journey to whole wheat baking here, and I will say it was not without trial and error(s)!

It took me a few years to realize my tendency towards being timid did not guarantee that I wouldn't have kitchen failures, no, not at all. I still have my share, you know the ones, where it is edible, just not share-worthy. Every cook and baker has them, and the truth is, you might also. But I hope that does not keep you from learning more about the foods you want to cook and bake with. Because now the only thing I only wonder is why I waited so long!
