These 27 tried-and-true einkorn recipes are sure to help you get started baking with einkorn the easy way! Plus, they are all classic family favorites that will get a big thumbs up from even the pickiest eater!
Ok, ok... I'll admit it. I'm kinda obsessed with einkorn! And really, it's no wonder... Not only does it taste amazing, but it also allows my family (most of whom have severe reactions to gluten) to enjoy our favorite recipes without trying to convert the measurements to fit alternative flours.
But wait, doesn't einkorn contain gluten?
It does, yes. However, einkorn doesn't contain the type of gluten that triggers a gluten response. In fact, the author of the book Wheat Belly, Dr. William Davis, excluded einkorn from his statements regarding wheat as the einkorn flour doesn't cause the body to react in the same way that other wheat does!
