Does baking with whole grain ﬂours change your recipe results?
To ﬁnd out, Oldways Whole Grain Stamp manager Abby tested one cookie recipe with ﬁve diﬀerent types of ﬂour—all-purpose, whole wheat, rye, oat, and spelt.
Abby used freshly milled, locally-sourced grains for her cookie experiment!
Abby started with David Lebovitz’s Breton Sables, also known as Salted French Butter Cookies (“What. A. Dream.” she said of this delicious recipe.) Keeping the process, measurements, and remaining ingredients the same, she swapped in the diﬀerent ﬂours and recorded the results. How did the whole grain ﬂours change the texture and taste of the cookie? Which one did she like best? Read on to ﬁnd out!
