    Try www.wildoats.com and www.wholefoods.com. They both have lots of recipies for alternative baking. My local library has lots of natural recipe cook books you might try that.

    Happy eating

    you might want to use whole wheat pastry flour instead of regular whole wheat flour. It is a finer flour, yields a lighter product.

    happy baking!

    My problem is the sweetner..I don't what to do about that..

    I don't know if this will fit the bill exactly b/c it does have brown sugar in it. I've made these and they are to die for!! I'm sure you could use some sort of other sweetener instead of the brown sugar if you need to. Everything else in them is pretty much okay, isn't it??

    Cranberry-Oat Delights

    *3/4 C unsalted butter
    *1 ½ C brown sugar
    *2 tsp cinnamon
    *¼ tsp ginger
    *¼ tsp nutmeg
    *½ tsp baking powder
    *½ tsp baking soda
    *½ tsp salt
    *1 Tbl vanilla
    *1 large egg
    *1 1/3 C old-fashioned rolled oats
    *1¼ C whole wheat flour
    *2 C dried fruit (cranberries, diced apples, chopped dates, raisins, apricots, or the dried fruit of your choice
    *1 C diced pecans or walnuts

    Cream together the butter, sugar, spices, leaveners, salt, and vanilla. Beat in egg. Add the oats, flour, fruit, and nuts, and stir to combine.
    Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the cookies in a preheated 350ºF oven for 7 minutes; reverse the pans on the racks, and bake for an additional 7 to 8 minutes, until cookies are beginning to brown around the edges, but are still soft in the center. Remove from the oven, and cool on a rack.
    Yield: about 4 dozen cookies.

    I was on anti candida diet for a year.

    The only down side to this cookie is you really have to eat them warm. They are very easy to make. I can't remember where I got it. One of the Anti-candida diet books I suppose.
    I will try this from memory. I no longer have the book. I am used to making a half batch and I cannot remember the amount on oats unless I am making it, you will know what is right.

    2 mashed bananas
    1 (or ? 2)c oats
    1/4 c walnut oil
    1/4 c walnuts

    Mix well. Scoop by 1/8c. onto cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8 min or so til lightly browned. Makes a dozenish.

    It's a Greek/Turkish dip and all around meal garnish. We just had supper at a great Greek restaurant the other night and it reminded me, thier Tzaziki was to die for.

    So here's an approximate recipe for a great way to get that nasty yogurt down and add to it's probiotic and nutrient properties. I haven't made it yet, but I'm going to soon. You can buy it at grocers too, in the dairy section, but it's never as good as the restaurant versions I've had.


    Tzaziki

    2 cups yogurt
    half an English cucumber
    half to 1 tsp garlic puree

    Blend in blender until smooth.

    ***********

    I wouldn't be concerned about brown sugar in a recipe. Brown sugar is not very refined, it's brown and sticky because the molasses has been left in, and molasses is very nutrious, rich in iron and other minerals. I've adopted my Mom's rule of thumb for baking, halve the sugar and double the spices. Tastes all the better for it too.

    I finally took some time and looked at those sites you gave me for some reciepes.. they are wonderful.

    Thanks so much.. I will be able to look up some good stuff there. I wish I had one of those stores close to me. I think they would be about 2 hours form me.
