Why bake with einkorn?

Baking with einkorn is an ancient grain that many can eat. Wheat flour today is not the same. Einkorn has been around for thousands of years.

Einkorn Cornbread

Bake an organic cornbread recipe for a healthy choice. Avoid GMO foods. My husband had horrible stomach cramps for years.

There are some foods we discovered that cause him abdominal pain…

  • White or Wheat flour
  • GMO foods

Now, that we have switched to einkorn flour and organic cornmeal he hasn’t had any more abdominal pain. GMO foods like chips, beans, and corn, caused him severe pain.

If you switch to non-GMO products you may see a difference too.

I’ve mentioned this before, but we changed to gluten-free flour for a while when we realized we couldn’t tolerate white flour, then we did more of a keto recipe with cheeses.

But.….I still wanted a flour texture for my baked goods. Spelt flour is a little heavy, so finding einkorn has been a win for our family.

Can I use einkorn flour for other baked goods?

Yes! We like einkorn flour and changing my recipes has worked really well with a few adjustments.

So dig in that cabinet and find your iron skillet for this cornbread recipe, bake in a pan, or bake muffins.

Make this einkorn cornbread recipe the next time you have soup on a cold wintery day. And if you struggle to eat corn or regular flour, this is a great alternative. Now, my husband can enjoy a warm, buttery slice of cornbread. Enjoy!
