A question about a recipe: Molasses Bran Muffins

Bc7720dd aa20 4442 af02 b05261c4e8a1  5d2e4909 2954 4c21 b714 0ec2ac726d7d 380a0193

I have a question about the recipe "Molasses Bran Muffins" from Posie Harwood. Sounds Yummy . . . but am confused. Ingredients include "1 1/2 cups WHITE WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR". I thought flour was either WHITE OR WHOLE WHEAT, but not both. Am I wrong? Thanks.

Good question! White whole wheat is actually flour that has been milled from hard white wheat, whereas whole wheat is milled from red wheat. So, both types of flour have all the nutrition of whole grains, but white whole wheat flour is milder in flavor and lighter in color. It's a really great way to get whole grain nutrition without the heftier flavor and color of whole wheat flour. You should be able to easily find it in most grocery stores. If you can't, just sub all whole wheat!

King Arthur Flour mills white whole wheat flour; perhaps your grocer stocks it. You can also order it from their website.

Thanks Lisanne for your response. Unfortunately, we don't have King Arthur products up here in Canada . . . but I shall try to find an equivalent flour.

I don't know if this helps, but King Arthur also ships to Canada. They provided me with a link, I don't know if shipping costs work for you, but they do have a pretty neat catalogue with all kinds of things besides flours, flavorings, storage, baking supplies, etc. http://www.kingarthurflour...
