Einkorn Kefir Biscuits

Einkorn Kefir Biscuits

These biscuits are great with Einkorn or white spelt and you can make up the dry ingredients as a meal prep on the weekend and add the kefir and honey the day of.  We often store a jar of pre-made in the pantry for easy making in the week.  The kids love them and einkorn is a gentle gluten that is not irritating to most people’s guts.  With only 14 chromosomes it also is not like our modern wheat which crosses the blood brain barrier, wreaking havoc on our systems.  Many people who think they have a gluten allergy can eat Einkorn without issues.  The milk kefir can be substituted with buttermilk.  Our kids love these with butter and grandma’s homemade no sugar jam!
