sourdough whole wheat and cocoa

Trying to get my family on board with sourdough whole wheat has been a little challenging. I like food that is nutrient packed but it also has to taste good or we aren't eating it, well unless I have a dinner experiment gone bad, yeah, we don't waste food ;)

Many botched loaves has made my bread less appealing and harder to get them to keep trying but they have beared the storm well. My kids now love toast in the morning. Actually, they ask for it all day but what I want to share is something magical.

There is magic in the combination of sourdough whole wheat and COCOA. I have been using my extra starter in granola bars and pancakes and somehow that cocoa gives the sweetest, most interesting, yummy flavor. My kids are sold 100% on those sweets and I've seen recipes for chocolate cake that is sourdough. I though it sounded disgusting but I am absolutely going to have to try.

There is an Italian rustic chocolate sourdough bread that I've made a couple times and it is delicious. Here is a link to the formula.
