Einkorn wheat was one of the first plants to be domesticated and cultivated. It is soft and crushes easily, resulting in a pillowy soft flour that is perfect for cakes, cookies, and loaves. We have opted for a 100% whole grain version since the bran mills down to be almost undetectable in the finished flour.
Sinclair River Farms is a third-generation farm run by Lorne & Monica Muller. Over the past 15 years, Lorne and Monica have paid great attention to their soil health, with a focus on regenerative farming. Regenerative farming is a practice aimed at continually improving the quality of the soil, rather than just maintaining it.
Our hand-crafted Austrian stone mill slowly and gently crushes grain at a low temperature, a process that produces beautiful, aromatic, nutritious and delicious flour. The product bears little resemblance to the typical, highly processed shelf stable flour found on grocery store shelves. You’ll notice the difference right away: the colour is natural and the aroma is unmistakable.
We recommend storing our fresh flours in the fridge or freezer to maintain freshness.

This was my first purchase of the whole grain einkorn flour, and I wanted to taste its flavor without lots of other spices, so I decided on pancakes...I used a recipe for typical buttermilk ones from an Einkorn cookbook, but substituted kefir for the buttermilk, since that’s what I had. These were incredibly delicious, actually best without maple syrup, but with a drizzle of honey on top, which allowed the einkorn flavor to come through. I’m sold...the flavor of einkorn adds so much to the cake...just a depth I’ve never tasted before. I can’t wait to use my einkorn on other recipes and breads to taste the difference. Give this a try!
I have used this to make 100% whole wheat peanut butter cookies and waffles. They both turned out amazing and wayyy better than standard store bought whole wheat, and had more delicate texture than some of the other Flourist varieties. More than that I feel much better about the source of this flour and the variety of wheat for my health, which is why I was willing to pay the premium cost. I store it in the fridge. But if you are looking for less expensive flours, the others are great as well and much more cost-effective.
Delicious Whole Grain Flour!
Lovely texture and flavour. I've used this for cookies, pasta, and bread, it's so tasty. It's takes more hydration and seems more delicate to work with in dough form, but fermentation and cooking unleash its earthy flavour.
