Red Lentil Brownies

WonderMill put Food Bloggers to the test: Create 5 recipes using flours processed using their mill.
When I first heard about WonderMill’s Grain Mill Wagon Challenge, I thought, why not?
There are so many things you can make from flour besides breads and dessert. I made Kamut Noodles and Crackers for example.
Then I got to thinking, grains are not the only thing WonderMill grinds. You can mill beans too! I love lentils. I love brownies. So how about Lentil Brownies!

The lentil flour turned out soft, not cakey and very easy to use. Ratio wise, you should use a little less (about 2 tablespoons per cup) than you would use if it were all-purpose flour.

About Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. I first heard about the WonderMill and the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge through a food blogging group. Everyone had very positive experiences with their mills. The idea of grinding my own flour at home sounded too good to be true. When my WonderMill arrived, I immediately went shopping at a local health food/general store and bought spelt, winter wheat, soy, groats, lentils, barley and kasha. The WonderMill produced velvety soft flour; warm and ready to use in a matter of seconds. I made whole grain crackers, linguine, soy milk, lentil flour brownies and beer bread for starters. Now that the challenge is over, I plan to continue enjoying my WonderMill for years to come.
