I love muffins! Of all breakfast foods, muffins are my favorite. We also love spelt flour. In fact, we’ve switched to 100% spelt or einkorn flour in our diet for years. Now when we eat regular wheat products, we notice digestive upset.
People have a lot of questions about using Spelt or Einkorn flour as a replacement for regular wheat flour. Questions like…
Is Spelt and Einkorn gluten free?
The short answer to that question is, no. However, there is a long answer which explains why Spelt or Einkorn may be more easily tolerated by people who are sensitive to wheat. A quick Google search will reveal copious amounts of information about the difference between spelt and wheat and why it’s easier to digest. Really, I didn’t believe it until I felt the effects in my own body!
Can you use spelt or einkorn like regular wheat flour?
YES! FOR SURE! It works cup for cup just like wheat flour!
That said, I posted a picture of my latest muffin creation on Facebook recently and had many requests for the recipe. So whether your brand new to spelt, or looking to expand you usage of this delicious grain, I have a great recipe to share!
Of all breakfast foods, muffins are the most comforting. These can be made with spelt, einkorn or even regular flour.

1CupFresh Ground Cornmeal or FlourFresh ground is ideal, but if you don't have a grinder, you can use a whole grain flour.

1tsp. Sea Salt
Preheat oven to 375 and butter a large cast iron pan.
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients until smooth and well combined.
Make a well in the center and add the remaining ingredients then stir to incorporate. Stir gently so you don’t over mix, but make sure all is blended together.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm with more butter and honey!
Note: If you don’t have a grain grinder, you may use yellow cornmeal and other flour of choice in place of the cornflour and spelt. The spelt flour does add a wonderful nutty flavor!
Yummm!!! It has turned full on fall here with cooler days and downright cold nights. We are keeping a fire going most of the time and pulling out the sweaters that had been shoved to the back of the dresser. In fact, it’s perfect weather for big pots of chili and delicious cornbread.
Unfortunately, chili isn’t something I have yet mastered. Yesterday I made a pot that was pretty good–even if I do say so myself. But it was mostly due to the can of salsa that I added. Even if I’m not great at making chili, I have found a yummy cornbread recipe that is more of a “whole” food.
What do I mean by “Whole food”? Simply that it has whole, or “God-Made” ingredients in it. It does not have a lot of sugar or white flour. It truly tastes fabulous!
Pull out your aprons and let’s do some baking today!
Now, if you have an amazing chili recipe, questions or want to share your thoughts, post it in the comments below!
