I have a Nutrimill. I grind wheat. We are not total health nuts, but we try. Last night #1 Chick measured out 10 cups of wheat berries. Then we sorted through the wheat and got all the rocks out. Ten cups of berries will get you about 20 cups of flour. I am currently using hard red wheat. I have a free source for this right now. I would like to try some other types of wheat berries, but can't seem to justify buying different wheat when I have quite a bounty already (about 1500 pounds!). This morning I made some super delicious whole wheat/oatmeal blueberry muffins.
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare muffin pan.
What you will need:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 t. baking powder
- 1/2 t. baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 5 T. butter
- 3/4 c. demerara, turbinado or light brown sugar
- 1 cup oats (I use quick)
- 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl. In a large bowl whisk sour cream and eggs together. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and mix in the brown sugar. Add demerara/butter and oatmeal to the sour cream/egg mixture. Fold in the flour mixture only enough to dampen the flour. Toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon flour and fold into batter. Spoon batter into muffin tins, about 2/3 full. Bake until brown and puffy. Cool and remove from baking pan. Around here they usually cool for 5 minutes or so and then they are gobbled up.
