Whole Wheat English Muffins

Lately, I’ve been trying to come up with to-go breakfast ideas that I can easily eat at work. The other day, I remembered we had English muffins in the freezer and thought they would be perfect!Whole Wheat English Muffins.10

But when I took them out, I could tell right away that they were freezer burned (honestly not sure how long they had been there…) so I decided I would make some English muffins myself the following weekend. Homemade is better anyway, right?Whole Wheat English Muffins.6

These whole wheat muffins are amazing! They rise tall, have a perfect crumble, and have a nice, hearty touch due to the whole wheat. My ideal English muffin is toasted with some salted butter, topped with some raspberry jam! (more…)

Perfect Chocolate Chip Pancakes + My Etsy Shop!

Yes, you read that post title correctly: these are the perfect chocolate chip pancakes. Why? Because they’re fat and fluffy, made with whole wheat flour, and you can whip them up in minutes.

But, before I give you the recipe, I’d like to announce the opening of my new Etsy shop! Last week I worked on setting up my site (etsy.com/shop/jackiesdelights) where I’ll be selling handmade accessories, purses, pouches, and hopefully some laptop sleeves too.

Crunchy Cranberry Muffins

After making white chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies, I was inspired to turn the recipe into a muffin. I had a bit of trouble at first trying to think of what to call these muffins, and finally settled on crunchy cranberry muffins in attempt to keep it short.

Just like the aforementioned cookies, these muffins have white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. They get their “crunch” from two other things: the course sugar topping and macadamia nuts (though these are optional – I tried them with and without, both are great).

Though these don’t have oatmeal like the cookies, they are made with whole wheat flour, allowing for a healthy treat!  (more…)

Whole Wheat Pancakes

This has been my long-time go-to recipe whenever I’m not sure what to make my family for breakfast. These pancakes are pretty simple, calling only for basic ingredients (nothing fancy).

They are also very healthy, with whole wheat and oatmeal. They’re readily adaptable: replace the oatmeal with more flour for a thicker pancake, add chocolate chips for a sweet treat, or change the amount of milk for varying thickness.  (more…)

Whole Wheat Tortillas

Depending on which state you live in, it can be pretty difficult to find delicious tortillas at your local grocery store. It is especially hard to find fresh, handmade tortillas, even if there’s a Mexican bakery nearby; machine-made tortillas seem to be the norm in the states. So if you are looking for a delicious tortilla recipe, try this one out. Make these tortillas as thick or thin as you want them, and have them fresh off the stove. It is a lot quicker to make these tortillas than any yeasted bread and these taste wonderful served warm with a bit of butter!  (more…)
