Things To Do With… Leftover Wholemeal Flour

Wholemeal flour (not to be confused with whole-wheat flour) contains all of the wheat grain and is packed with fibre, protein, minerals and vitamins. Unlike regular white flour, nothing is lost during the processing of wholemeal flour and all the goodness is retained. We often choose brown wholemeal bread over white bread when we are dieting or trying to live a healthier lifestyle. And there is good reason to as wholemeal flour is a good source of calcium and iron. It doesn’t keep as long as white flour, but I have made and found some yummy recipes to use up your leftover wholemeal flour which will ensure you won’t have it sitting around for long!

  1. I love using wholemeal and spelt flour in my baking – it gives a different taste and texture and lends itself well to fruity bakes particularly muffins. I can imagine a pizza crust would be good too.
