Last week I made some pumpkin pie spice mix and so now I had a taste for some pumpkin bread, after all, it is pumpkin spice season. I also had a box of einkorn flour in my cabinet that I wanted to try. Now einkorn flour isn’t gluten-free but this ancient grain contains less gluten than modern whole wheat and is more abundant in many vitamins and minerals. Untouched by hybridization, einkorn has retained its primitive genetic code that contains only 14 chromosomes—a huge difference from the 42 chromosomes contained in modern hybridized wheat. So if you are only sensitive to gluten like I am you might want to give it a try. So far I have been enjoying cereal made from einkorn and now this bread and I have been fine with it. I get mine from Young Living so I know it’s of good quality. If you wanted to make this pumpkin spice apple bread gluten-free you can substitute the einkorn four for your favorite gluten-free flour.Print
