Einkorn flour is the most ancient wheat which during processing maintains a higher percentage of nutrients. It’s very a good source of protein, iron, fiber, thiamine and B Vitamins. Einkorn flour is a great option for those who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet. It still contains gluten, but it’s much easier to digest.
Besides being healthier for you, einkorn flour tastes great and can be substituted in most baking recipes. Due to the size of its grains, it absorbs liquids slower, so make sure to follow the recipe and not to add too much liquid.
To make the einkorn flour, use a grain mill or simply place einkorn in a high speed blender and blend for about 2 minutes (until finely ground). Keep in mind that 1 cup einkorn makes around 1 1/2 cup flour.
