Full Flavor, All Natural

Healthy eating can be hard to live up to, particularly when it comes to sweet treats! But it is possible to indulge in delectable baked goods that are still good for you. Whole-grain baked goods are a great way to get flavor, texture, and nutrition all in one. Read on to learn more about the benefits of tasty, healthy whole-grain baked goods.

While packaged and processed snacks are convenient, baked-from-scratch goodies provide much more nutrition. You may be surprised at the goodness you can create in your very own kitchen! Using whole grains as a basis for your baked goods creates a nutritional powerhouse. Incorporating alternative sweeteners such as coconut sugar, maple syrup, molasses, and dates creates a nutritious alternative to processed sugar that is still full of flavor. In addition to flour, add nutritious and delicious ingredients such as nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, cocoa, dried fruit, and spices, such as cinnamon and ginger. With just a few simple ingredients, you can enjoy a delicious and healthy treat.

Whole grains provide more nutrition than refined grains, as they contain all parts of the grain kernel and therefore more essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fibers. Here are some examples of healthy whole grains you can incorporate into your baked goods:

  • Oats
  • Brown rice
  • Barley
  • Quinoa
  • Millet
  • Buckwheat

Whole grain flours can be a great addition to any recipe. In addition to providing texture and flavor, they can also help provide the nutritional foundation needed for a balanced diet. When baking with whole grains, you can feel good about stretching your nutrients and indulging in a delicious snack.
