Anti Grains= Who Knew?
Have you guys heard of Anti Grain? The company was started by a cute couple, Amanda and Jerry, and they make flours out of apples, butternut squash and sweet potatoes. WHAT?! How is that even possible? Well my friends, it is.
I reached out to them and they were kind enough to send me some samples of their product. Seriously though, how awesome are they… they sent me a HAND WRITTEN note and both signed it. You don’t see customer service like that anymore.
I perused their website for recipes and decided on the Quick and Easy Dark Chocolate Apple Cupcakes. I didn’t frost them, so there for they are muffins and not cupcakes, which means they are totally a breakfast item 🙂I added chocolate chips to the batter because, well, why not. They definitely had a spongier (probably not the right word, but close) texture, but were super yummy! Weirdly, I think they tasted even better when put in the fridge over night. I only made half a batch and got 8 out of it!
The next morning I attempted their Squash and Coconut Flour Pancakes and must have done something wrong.
Maybe because I added apple flour instead of coconut flour?! Maybe I put too much liquid? I tend to over pour… the batter tasted good and so did the “pancakes”, but they were not pretty and didn’t look like pancakes- so no picture. I don’t want to do them an injustice.
My fave recipe using the Anti-Grain flours is one I made up myself 🙂 Salmon Cakes. Todd loved them and has since asked for them several nights. Looks like I need to buy more canned salmon!
14.75 oz canned Salmon
1/2 cup Sweet Potato Flour + little less than 1 tsp baking powder
1 TBSP dried dill
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
Mix everything together and shape into patties. I pan “fried” them with coconut oil spray, but you could actually fry them with coconut oil/canola oil/whatever oil you want.
I really want to try the break sticks and squash and sweet potato flour noodles, but I need to get some rice flour first! I’ll let you know how those turn out when I make them. I’m excited to experiment more and see what these flours can do! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
What would you try and make with the Anti-Grain flours?
