Eating healthier doesn’t have to be boring or challenging. For me, little changes over time actually stick better. A big game changer for me was when I discovered white whole wheat flour. I pretty much dropped all-purpose flour cold turkey once I realize how beautifully white whole wheat baked and tasted. My other secret ingredient is Craisins® Dried Cranberries. We always keep a bag in our pantry for snacks. Sometimes I even manage to sneak some away from my kids to bake with.
My new obsession is perfecting my no knead bread recipe. I love bread (who doesn’t?), but I’m too impatient for the rising and kneading process. I don’t always have the time. Friends, this is my best no knead bread recipe yet. The bread is most, fluffy, and flavorful. I made 4 versions of these cute little rolls before I was happy. My husband and kids ate every single batch. They’re not as picky as I am.
The secret ingredient are Craisins®. They add the right hint of sweet-tartness to the rolls. If you’ve never had these little dried cranberries, give them a try. A 1/4 cup of Craisins® equals 1/2 serving of fruit, so they’re a healthy snack to satisfy your sweet cravings. (Try making your own trail mix with them.) Because of the cranberries’ sweetness, I was able to cut back on the amount of honey I used in the recipe.
I was surprised to discover that Craisins® now come in different flavors: blueberry and cherry were just a few I saw. There’s even a reduced sugar version, for those who are trying to scale back. I grabbed the giganto 24oz bag because my kids eat them by the handfuls. Check your local Walmart’s dried fruit section and grab a few packs to try.
I also grabbed a bag of the new Craisins® Fruit Clusters to try as a topping on my Greek yogurt. The combination makes a great breakfast or afternoon snack. The clusters add just the hint of sweetness I crave. You can get more topping and snack ideas on Ocean Spray®’s Pinterest board.
I’ve teased you enough. Are you ready to try your hand at these no knead whole wheat cranberry rolls? Go forth and bake!
