So, I’ve been told ‘nesting’ is a real thing before becoming a mumma. Cooking, cleaning and all that jazz. Well the cleaning part not so much (yet!) but I am pronouncing myself as the Domestic Goddess at the moment with the amount of times I’ve been beating sugar, butter and eggs together. Nope, they’re are the healthiest versions I’ve ever tried #sorrynotsorry
I’ve been playing around with Kamut flour, sometimes referred to as Khorasan. It’s said to be an alternative that is much easier to digest. Bonus – it can be substituted directly 1:1 No messy conversions here! I purchase mine from The Source Bulk Foods.
Note: You can substitute Kamut with any all purpose flour. The sugar can also be substituted for any brown sugar.
