How to Use Einkorn Flour

What is einkorn flour?

Einkorn is an ancient grain, and the only wheat that’s never been hybridized.

According to this source, “the gluten in einkorn lacks the high molecular weight proteins that many people can’t digest. If you are sensitive to modern wheat, einkorn can provide a delicious alternative.”

Since this ancient grain also contains more protein, less starch, and more nutrients than regular wheat, I feel good about serving it to my family.

The only drawback is that it’s not as simple to use as regular wheat flour. There’s a bit of a learning curve to baking with it, but it’s so worth it!

In some recipes, you can substitute einkorn cup for cup with regular whole wheat flour. But often you’ll need to reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe.

For muffin recipes, it’s best to gently blend the ingredients together, which will result in a lighter texture.
