"The Family Table Cookbook: Whole Grain Pancake & Baking Mix" combines the superior nutrition of whole grains, fruits, and veggies with the convenience of a simple mix to create wholesome breakfasts, craveable snacks, fun lunchbox treats, and decadent desserts for family members of all ages.


If the phrase ‘whole grain baking’ translates for you as ‘dense, dull, and time-consuming,’ it’s time to try this fresh approach with one versatile mix that’s used to make all of the fluffy pancakes, moist and flavorful muffins, aromatic quick breads, and delectable sweet treats in this book.

This convenient mix is made with easy-to-find ingredients and provides a simple solution for time-crunched families who need an inexpensive alternative to packaged whole grain mixes and a smart method for providing homemade. Loaded with the powerful benefits of hearty whole grains, every recipe reduces harmful fats and eliminates processed sugar by incorporating smaller amounts of natural sweeteners which are lower on the glycemic index.

Weary parents longing for a fuss-free way to get their families to eat healthier, especially those with babies new to solid foods or children who are at varied developmental stages, will find relief with the section of multipurpose Power Purees. Providing natural sweetness and a nutritional boost for many of the recipes in this book, these purees can also be served as individual or combo baby foods and as healthy additions to snacks for kids and adults of all ages. Simple, concise instructions take the guesswork out of providing healthy family meals and snacks.

Countless hours were spent testing the recipes in this book. They have been repeatedly taste-tested and approved by some of the most discerning diners around – toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged kids, teenagers, and even some die-hard junk-food-junkies!

Here’s what a few of the testers and tasters had to say:

Mango-Raspberry Muffins - “These will be a staple. The kids love making them and eating them. Five stars for sure. You are the Muffin Queen.” – Zaida W.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies – “Loved them! My kids love any “sweet” and I loved them because they are much more healthy than ordinary cookies.” – Rebecca S.

Golden Sunrise Muffins – “I like your whole grain baking mix. I made your Apricot Sunshine muffins for coffee hour after church today and everyone raved about them – something that is so loaded with nutrition and light on calories is hard to believe that it can taste so good too.” – Martha S.
