I have loved mac and cheese all my life, but have recently made it a point (well, usually!) to avoid as much saturated fat and white pasta & flour products as I can. This recipe meets those critera, and although it looks a little different due to the whole wheat ingredients, it tastes just like the real thing:)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil macaroni & 1/2 tsp white salt in water until soft (about 10 minutes or follow package directions).
  2. While macaroni cooks, stir canola oil and flour together in a small saucepan until it boils.
  3. Add milk while continuing to stir. Keep stirring until mixture thickens, then stir in season salt.
  4. Remove pan from heat.
  5. Cut velveeta into small chunks and add to sauce along with shredded cheddar and stir until melted.
  6. Stir in cooked macaroni and pour into a medium casserole dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
