My first recollection of buckwheat flour was when I was a child in the 70s. It was a decade where buckwheat flour was making a comeback due to its compelling nutrient profile. I recall it as a ‘hippy’ grain and a bit alternative. I heard about buckwheat pancakes occasionally, but we were a solid Bisquick family. Buckwheat wasn’t something that made its way into our house. Now I love it – and buckwheat flour truly gets the chance to shine in these orange-scented buckwheat chocolate chip cookies.  Buckwheat flour has appeared in an increasing number of baking recipes lately, from muffins to ..read more

For me, fall is bittersweet. I love getting into new routines with work, back-to-school and kids activities, along with enjoying the beautiful colours, but I truly love being with my kids during the summer and soaking up their laughter, smiles and curiosity.

Baking With Coconut Flour + Coconut Flour Banana Bread Recipe

I’ve always enjoyed baking with alternative flours, especially in developing new cookie recipes for my cookie dough company, Fittersweet. My coursework from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition fueled that fun even further.  Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a banana bread kick, and have been experimenting with different flour options for that. Many gluten free baking recipes rely on almond flour, which I like, but I’ve found that using all almond flour can sometimes leave baked goods a little heavy or oily, so I’ve been trying to mix it up a bit by baking with coconut flour.

Temperatures are heating up and the days are getting longer. Hours spent at the beach or backyard barbeques all point to summer, but for me, watermelons are a sure sign summer has arrived. This large gourd of a fruit, which some say moonlights as a vegetable, might be mostly water, but that doesn’t mean it lacks nutritional value. This red, juicy fruit is more than a sweet side dish or source for seed spitting contests at summer picnics. It’s a great hydrator and full of heart-healthy vitamins, and there are so many watermelon recipes to try! Culinary Nutrition Benefits of Watermelon The nutri ..read more
