Einkorn is of the oldest grains on the planet and has a delicious, nutty flavor. Its gluten properties are far more delicate than other modern wheats, making it wonderful in flat applications, like tortillas or pita bread. Our favorite way to eat them is smeared with a little butter and a sprinkle of salt.

3 cups Barton Springs Mill whole wheat Einkornflour, plus more for rolling tortillas
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup softened butter, lard, or oil
1 cup warm water

Stir together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Add the butter and warm water, mixing with your hands until a soft dough forms. (If the dough seems sticky, don’t worry; fresh, stone-milled flours tend to be thirstier than shelf-stable, store-bought flours, so the Einkorn will absorb some of that extra hydration as it sits.)

Cover the bowl and allow the dough to rest for 20 to 30 minutes. Heat a comal or cast-iron skillet over medium heat.

Pull off lime-size chunks of dough and roll them between well-floured hands into little balls. Working with one at a time, roll each ball into a flat circle measuring about 6 inches across. (Or, if you have a tortilla press, you can use that.)

Cook each tortilla on the hot comal or pan for 30 to 45 seconds, or until the tortilla begins to puff in spots and char. Flip and repeat. Move to a plate and cover with a warm towel until all the tortillas are cooked. Serve immediately.

I am a new owner of a mill and am milling my own flour for the first time. This is so much fun, and the Barton Springs grains are just wonderful. Everything about my order was great, from the customer service, quick shipping, excellent notifications, right to the product itself. Fresh and flavorful. I am very pleased.

Beautiful and Delicious

I use the Sonora Wheat Berries for all my non-yeast baking. Muffins, pancakes and more. I love the golden color and flavor of this wheat. My order was packaged well and the wheat is very clean and ready to mill.

Einkorn Flour

Made Einkorn Flour and White Cornmeal pancakes. Great taste. To hot to bake anything this time of year. Trying some grits for evening meal, topped with eggs. Thank you for service and answering questions about grind on corn.


I love spelt, especially Barton Springs’ spelt. It is very clean, and they ship it so fast. I made banana bread recently, and knowing that spelt is a complete protein, along with fruit, nuts, butter and eggs, you’ve got all the food groups in a delicious slice.
