Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Candy Kiss Cookies


MGH-CANDYKISS“The freshly milled flour that you get by using you Wondermill or Wondermill Jr. Deluxe can be used to replace every single recipe that calls for that ‘dead’ bagged flour.” I said.  Although it seemed as if my words were a foreign language.

WM[1]This truth took a little convincing for my mother-in-law.  That was until she tasted my bread, pizza crusts and pancakes.  No more convincing words needed!

So it is with great joy that I share one of her recipes (which is my husband’s favorite) remixed with a little more ‘health’ in mind by using the whole wheat flour from my Wondermill and the Peanut Butter you can make with your WMJD. These healthier alterations also include replacements for shortening, white sugar and of course, white bagged flour which were all found in the original recipe.  Why eat those things when this recipe is so much healthier and twice as tasty? Am I right?  🙂

Remix of Nana’s familiar favorite now with better-for-you ingredients.
