Coconut Oil White Whole Wheat Shortbread Cookies

Want a quick and easy recipe with minimal ingredients or fuss? Then try these fabulous little shortbread cookies. Made with whole grain White Whole Wheat Flour and coconut oil instead of butter. They are buttery, crumbly and delicious. Leave them plain or decorate them as you wish. Shape them into little balls for round cookies or press the mixture into a round pan and turn them into petticoat tails (longer cooking time would be needed). Enjoy! ~J

anitas-newsletter-feb-2015-v3You asked in your droves and we listened and then searched……and searched……and searched….and finally we managed to find Organic Almond Flour!

So we now offer almond based products – our Almond Meal – which has a slightly coarse texture – making it perfect for cookies; granola bars; and pie crusts. And our Almond Flour which is much finer and great for more delicate types of baking such as macaroons; non-gluten breads; and delicate cakes. You’ll find them both in the refrigerator or just ask.

Curried Oatmeal with VeggiesNow we all know how good oatmeal is for us but how often do we sit down to a savoury version. There are many different ways that this inexpensive grain can be jazzed up to give it a savoury kick. My favourite way to cook it is in place of Arborio Rice in risotto`s. This recipe isn`t quite like that as it is a much drier mixture but can be made that way by adding more liquid. The vegetables you choose are entirely up to you and if preferred add some coconut milk to give it a real curry like flavour. Enjoy – J

Ingredients (Serves 1)
  • 1/4 cup Anita’s Organic Steel Cut Oats
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely sliced
  • 1 cup mixed vegetables, chopped into bite size pieces (we used a mixture of broccoli; cauliflower; green beans; edamame)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 scallion, sliced

Ancient Grain Granola ClustersOk so Ancient Grain is a little bit of a lose term. Spelt and Kamut are both several thousands of years old so considered to be Ancient Grains. But what about Barley? Well most people are familiar with barley and though it’s not as old as the other two grains (about 1000 years in comparison) I think it deserves to be given an ancient status. So you can never have too many Granola recipes and this one is particularly yummy. Great as an on the go snack; served over yoghurt; or even with ice cream. This recipe is just seeds and nuts as adding fruit during the baking stage quite often results in burnt and bitter fruit. When making normal granola it’s very easy to add the fruit after baking but as these are clusters they will already be set once cooked. Because of this feel free to add dried fruit when serving if required – though its great as it is. Enjoy – J
