Baking with whole wheat flour is easy and can be delicious as long as you don’t overbake it. These bars taste very close to the traditional version made with white flour.

Christmas fruitcakes are heavy and dense, but this tender lemon pound cake can be part of your new holiday tradition. It has the candied fruit that makes it festive without using red and green food coloring.

Sesame seeds add a delicate crunch to these spicy treats. I like it when the cookies soften up as they are stored, but my husband is a crisp cookie fan, so I reheat them for a few minutes in a warm oven before serving the second day.

Halloween Ideas: Coco Bats

Halloween Cookie Ideas

You will need a bat shaped cookie cutter to makes these crunchy crisp chocolate bats are perfect for a healthy Halloween! The kids will love ‘em because they’re chocolate sugar cookie dough, but I like them since they have whole wheat flour and are lower in fat than a traditional sugar cookie.
