Looking for new desserts to try this winter? New Year’s celebrations are still coming up and any of these would be perfect for a fellowship or gathering!

You can find the full recipes at the Grain Mill Wagon, where I’m sharing what I’ve been doing with my new Wondermill Jr. Deluxe manual grain mill. I will share soon how the mill works for me.

In the meantime, here are three soaked or sprouted, whole-grain, and naturally sweetened desserts to whet your appetite and spice things up this winter…

Sweet Potato Cake

Sprouted Chocolate Pixies. Chewy, chocolately, and especially…. easy! This recipe comes from my great aunt. She gave my mom the recipe 48 years ago, and it is a family favorite. Now my daughter makes them each year, having been lovingly taught the recipe by her grandmother (my mom). Our adaption simply sprouts the grains to increase nutrition and digestibility. We sometimes reduce the amount of sweetener, but we have to admit it, we like them fully sweet. When it’s Christmas, we’re okay with that. :) Continue reading…

Sprouted Brownie Cake

Soaked or Sprouted Chocolate Brownie Cake. This was my birthday cake in early December, and I made it again for our Christmas Day dessert. It is both cakey and gooey, and that’s why I call it a “brownie cake” — the best of both worlds! Continue reading…
