Gold Medal White Whole Wheat Flour Review and Giveaway {Ends 10/10}

Gold Medal White Whole Wheat Flour
First I have to say thank you to the fabulous friend of mine who came over to our house and made these cookies from scratch for us as for this review.  My family and I enjoyed on these delicious chocolate chip cookies very very much!
Why didn’t I bake the cookies?  Because I was sort of running around like a crazy woman, trying to get ready for a work trip, trying to get regular work done, not to mention that this friend is known for making some reallllly good cookies!  The cookies seemed more flavorfull than usual and I realized that was because the flour has such a delicate flavor that it didn’t drown out the yummy goodness of the vanilla, brown sugar, and chocolate chips in the cookies.


With Americans looking for ways to add more whole grain to their diets, it’s the simple choices that can make a difference, like making the effortless switch to new Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour. Available in grocery stores this September, Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour can help you bake it great with the goodness of whole grains!

Unlike most whole wheat flours that are made from hard red spring wheat, Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour is made with hard white spring wheat. So, it´s whole grain, but with a similar taste and texture to all-purpose white flour.

Perfect for family favorite recipes like breads, pizza dough, cookies, muffins and brownies, Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour bakes up golden and has a milder flavor than baked goods made with regular whole wheat flour.

Start by simply substituting whole wheat white flour for 25 to 50 percent of the recipe’s flour content.

You may wish to add an extra tablespoon or two of the liquid used in the recipe when substituting Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour or decrease the amount of flour by one to two tablespoon for recipes that call for all-purpose flour.

From breakfast to dessert and everything in between, find classic recipes that use Gold Medal White Whole Wheat flour at www.bettycrocker.com and make adding whole grain to your daily routine even easier, without sacrificing on flavor.
