Smile Easiest way to make something edible from whole-wheat flour?

I was just wondering: What is the easiest way to make something edible from whole-wheat flour?

Can I just mix together some whole-wheat flour and water... and then put it in the microwave for 3 minutes? Would it be edible? Or would I get sick from eating it?

What would be your point? One can always make bread from ww flour, water, yeast, honey (just a bit), and oil...

or pancakes/crepes of some kind: flour, eggs, milk (or instead of eggs, baking powder), and a bit of salt. cook on a griddle or in a pan.

Well, I know that oatmeal can be made in the microwave very easily by just mixing rolled oats and water... and putting it in the microwave for a few minutes.

So I was just curious if wholewheat flour could also be used to make something edible if one doesn't have access to a frying pan or the oven. :)

ww flour and water cooked in a microwave will give you hot paste. It won't make you sick, but I don't know why anyone would want to eat it.

Hmm, but if I add some baking powder, cocoa powder and honey in there? And perhaps also some ground flax seeds. Would it still come out as a hot paste?

sounds pretty gross. why not google a recipe? I still don't understand what you are trying to accomplish. Are you just trying to get some fiber or something?

Well, I have a big bag of wholewheat flour, so I was just wondering if there are some easy ways to make something out of it.

At the moment I don't have access to a frying pan nor the oven. Otherwise I would make pancakes or bread. :)

Ok, I'll put it in the freezer, so it will last longer. No, I didn't google for recipes... I'll start doing that. :)

And I'll think about getting a hotplate or a bread machine.

Thanks for the help! :)
