I'm trying to integrate whole grains into my cooking/baking. It's not always a success, but we did find whole wheat pizza dough at Wegmans on Saturday. Here are our creations halfway through baking.
The package of dough doesn't say how many pizzas it makes, so we divided it in two. The upper crust (ha!) was thicker and, pressed into the pan corners, it came out more deep-dish style. The pizza stone made the cutting job much easier. They were both really good and it makes me want to try making my own whole wheat dough.
This morning (with Olivia nearby instead of waiting until her naptime) I made these chocolate chip cookies. Not that they're super healthy compared to the regular kind, but these have less sugar, all wheat flour, fewer chips (all I had), and oatmeal. A little crispy around the edges and crumbly from the oatmeal, but still good. Since my idea of "healthier" is more concerned with sugar than fat, I want to keep the butter in the recipe but substitute something for the sugar. I'm thinking applesauce is going to make the dough too runny. Thoughts?
