    Just found your site. Can’t wait to try the recipes. I just bought a grain mill and I wanted to use only fresh ground einkorn flour. Will that work in your recipes? Some of them call for all-purpose and some called for whole-grain.
    Thanks for your help.
    God bless you,

      Hi Jennifer, Unless specified, all our recipes use the whole grain einkorn flour. I personally never use all-purpose unless we’re creating a recipe for the website. You can use whole grain flour in all our recipes, but if it calls for all-purpose flour, you will just want to watch consistency as the amount of flour might vary a little.

    Einkorn is our favorite grain to grind for baking. I do not have a griddle or the round metal rings. Can I bake in a square glass baking dish? Or possibly you have another suggestion. I do have a black iron skillet. Thanks so much.

    I made do with einkorn flour I had bought several years ago and a One Degree wheat flour. Used soy milk powder. Did not have a muffin pain nor a griddle. However, I did have an abelskiewer pan and made the cutest little muffin balls. Thank you for the recipe.

      Hi Amalie, I haven’t tried it, but you can try using a non-dairy milk powder such as coconut milk powder, soy milk powder, or rice powder. If you do try one of these, we’d love to hear how it turns out.

    Super excited about this recipe. I have a lot of the all-purpose einkorn flour, so I used 1.5 cups of that with 1.5 cups of the whole grain, and they came out great! My kids like them better than “normal” English muffins, because they are less dry. I’ll be making these again! 🙂
    Question though…I used powdered goat’s milk, but I’m wondering if in the future, I can just warm up any kind of animal or plant-based milk to replace the water and powdered milk???

      Hi Heather, It may change the consistency some because we’re not using the same ratio of powdered milk to water as we would if we were trying to actually trying to get milk. There’s a lot more powdered milk if that makes sense.

    Looks great! Can’t wait to try these on my first weekend day off. This recipe doesn’t mention yield. It seems like it will make more batter than the four muffins depicted in the photo. I’m only cooking for two these days & would like to adjust ingredients accordingly. Or, have you ever refrigerated any unused batter for any length of time? I’m new to Einkorn (& bread baking in general). Thanks for any guidance you may have.

    Thanks for this recipe. I made a batch this morning and had some modifications.
    1) I used freshly ground flour and increased the amount to 3 1/2 cups.
    2) I set my griddle to 300 and baked for nine minutes to a side. At five minutes, there was still too much unbaked batter left.
    I have made hundreds of batches of wheat English muffins and these turned out as nice (or even nicer) than any of them

    HI, is there a way not to use milk powder? I just try not to use processed foods, and buy milk from a local small dairy. thanks.

    Any problem using a different oil or using melted butter instead? I noticed that most of your recipes that use a fat call for coconut oil.
