MaMa loves a good scone with her morning cup of coffee and these are three of her favorite scone recipes, all using Joseph's Grainery Barley Flour.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones - Watch out, you might be making these on a weekly basis...they are somewhat addicting. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Berry Barley Scones - these are delicious, no matter what berry you choose to use.
Honey Huckleberry Scones - Huckleberries are a favorite of ours, so if you love them like we do, then you'll love these scones too.

We had some homemade soup for dinner last night and that got me thinking...MaMa and I love to make soup with whole grains and legumes. So here's a round-up of our favorite soup recipes:
Lentil & Sausage Soup - this has to be our all time favorite soup recipe. Even if you don't like lentils, you'll enjoy this soup.
Chicken Pesto Soup with Barley & Orzo - If you love pesto, then you'll flip for a bowl of this soup!
Wheat Berry Black Bean Chili - With a little kick, you'll please the crowd who likes it spicy with this one.
Multigrain Chicken Soup - Homemade soup doesn't get much easier than this.
Curried Lentil Vegetable Soup - This delicious soup won top prize at the National Lentil Festival.
Chicken Tortilla Soup - Another crowd favorite...and it's easy to throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker.
What are some of your favorite whole grain or legume soups?

|Wheat Berry Granola given as a Teacher Appreciation Gift|
Yes it is! It's that time of the year that we show our wonderful teachers just how much we appreciate all that they do. Of course a bag of Joseph's Grainery Multigrain Pancake Mix or Whole Grain Cookie Mix would be a hit with any teacher, but we know some of you are like MaMa and have fun being a little creative, so we thought we'd share what we did for my preschool teachers today.
To put these fun gifts together, MaMa and I mixed up some of our favorite Wheat Berry Granola. This stuff is awesome on some Greek Yogurt and even better with some fresh fruit added to make a parfait! We thought some wheat berry granola would make a fun morning treat for my teachers, so we put the granola in a canning jar.
|Cute gift tags add a creative touch to this teacher appreciation gift.|
Have you checked out our Pinterest page? We have all sorts of other great whole grain gift ideas and free printables pinned, not to mention all sorts of recipes for whole grains and legumes that we hope to try. So hop on over and start following us on Pinterest too!
So whether you show your teachers some love by giving them some Joseph's Grainery Whole Grains or not, the important thing is to make sure you let your teachers know they are appreciated!

Why not make your favorite Iced Oatmeal Cookies a little healthier?
Guess what? MaMa went and did it again. She whole-grain-ified another family favorite of ours! Who doesn't like those Mother's Oatmeal Iced Cookies? This version tastes just as good, but adds some Joseph's Grainery Barley Flour into the mix. Delightfully yummy!
Knock-off Mother's Iced Oatmeal Cookies
by Joseph's Grainery
recipe inspired by: Is This Really My Life?
An even healthier version of the original with another whole grain added in.
Ingredients (3-4 dozen)
- 2 c old-fashioned oats
- 1 1/4 c Joseph's Grainery Barley Flour
- 1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbs baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 c granulated sugar
- ½ c brown sugar, packed
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 c powdered sugar
- 3 – 5 Tbs milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease cookie sheet.
- In a food processor or blender, pulse/blend oats until partly ground.
- Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix until combined.
- In a large bowl beat melted butter and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned.
- Immediately move the cookies from the cookies sheet to a wire rack to cool completely (if you wait to long, the cookies will break as you try to remove them from the sheet).
- Once cookies are completely cooled, whisk together powdered sugar and milk until smooth and desired consistency. Frost each cookie and allow glaze to set before storing (We liked dipping the tops of the cookies in the glaze and then flipping them over to set).

- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt

- 3/4 c applesauce
- 1/2 c milk
- 1 1/2 Tbs cornstarch
- 1/4 c real maple syrup
- 1/4 c butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1-3 c powdered sugar, if needed to thicken the glaze to desired consistency
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cream the honey and butter until well combined. Stir in the egg.
- Add the dry ingredients and applesauce alternately until everything is well mixed.
- Bake in a well greased donut tin/pan at 350 for about 11 minutes, check after 8 minutes.
- In a small saucepan mix the milk and cornstarch until they are dissolved. Add the syrup and using a fork or whisk, stir the mixture over medium heat until it is thick. Set aside to cool.
- Meanwhile, cream the butter and vanilla until they are well mixed and then beat in the cooled syrup mixture. Beat on high until the glaze is the consistency you desire. If it is too runny, add 1-3 cups of powdered sugar to achieve desired consistency.
Here's a look at what MaMa's donut pan looks like. If you like donuts and want to bake them at home, this pan would be a great idea!
