Our Best Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour Recipes!

In my never ending conversations about a well stocked pantry, I have to say, this is the only baking mix I ever keep on hand. And for a good reason. I live in a Tiny House, with a tiny pantry, in a tiny kitchen. 

Turns out, in this house only our appetites for variety and delicious food are big! But trust me, you won't be sorry to have only one canister of baking mix in your pantry, no matter how big it is! Come and take a look at all this variety...

It turns out, that...

As a whole wheat baker, I found there were between few and none, commercially prepared mixes to purchase. And being a scratch cook, I knew that there had to be a better way to manage time in the kitchen and still eat healthy. And specifically for my family, cooking and baking from scratch to avoid unnecessary processing, along with the freshness and stabilizing chemicals that go along with packaged food. Because, if I would not add those ingredient myself, I don't want them added for me...

So, a few years ago, I threw caution to the wind and decided to make my own Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour and there has not been a day since, that I have regretted that decision! It is my go-to pantry mix and the only one I keep on hand. But there is a little bit of a back story to our whole wheat journey...

In all honesty when I made the decision to go whole wheat or bust!, we did not go 100% whole wheat, right away. Why? Well like every other family cook, I am not the only one at the table to consider. So I played the percentage game and it worked great! We started at 50% whole wheat flour for the first batch, and it was so well received, I went 100% for each batch going forward. That percentage game was included when I wrote the recipe for Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour, because the truth is always best! 

Which brings us to...

Our Best Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour Recipes will be updated each time a new recipe has been created, baked and approved by our family, Oh and passes the most important test of all, the taste test! This process only sounds difficult, in reality it is quite simple, after serving the new recipe in development, I turn to my family and ask, "is this blog worthy?" If I get a no, I keep developing...

I invite you to visit now, and again later as more recipes are added to visit and have them in one handy place for your own convenient use! I know, I turn to them when time is tight or I just want something simple and delicious to make! Plus they all taste great!
