When you want a little something sweet after dinner, dip one of these crunchy, nut-studded treats into a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.


  • Vegetable oil, for baking sheet

  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour, spooned and leveled

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled, plus more for work surface

  • cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup walnut halves

  • ¼ cup golden raisins

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a baking sheet with oil; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt; stir in walnuts and raisins. Set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla. Add to flour mixture; stir just until combined.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, with floured hands, pat dough into a loaf about 1 inch thick, 2 1/2 inches wide (and about 7 inches long); transfer to baking sheet. Bake until risen and firm, 20 to 25 minutes; cool completely on sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.

  4. Place loaf on a cutting board, and using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/4 inch-thick slices; place slices in a single layer on sheet. Bake, turning once, until dried and slightly golden, 25 to 30 minutes; cool completely.
