PLEASE NOTE: Using fresh ground whole wheat flour will vary in texture, gluten content (makes the dough stick together) and moisture content so sometimes the baker has to make adjustments in the liquid amounts and baking times.

Most low gluten, ancient whole wheat flour recipes can be used with our flour. I have found lots of wonderful recipes online too.

You can substitute BANATKA flour for use in cookies,  pancakes, waffles, cornbread, flatbread, banana bread, muffins, biscuits, sourdough breads,  artisan breads and more.

BANATKA WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR is nutty and delicious and not like any wheat flour we have tasted. It is best to use added gluten or Bread Flour if you want a fluffier loaf of bread. If you prefer low gluten, then use just the Banatka flour for a more textured loaf.


BANATKA BREAD (This recipe is for a bread machine and you may need to adjust to your machine.)

3 cups Banatka Flour

1 cup Bread Flour 

1 1/2 tsp. Salt

2 Tbl. Sugar (or 2 Tbl. Honey)

1 1/2 cup Water (slightly less if using Honey)

1 (beaten) Egg

2 Tbl. Butter

1 1/2 tsp. Fast Rising Yeast

Place lukewarm water, butter, salt, sugar and beaten egg  in the bread machine first. 

Add dry ingredients next. Make a small indent in the flour and place the yeast in the middle.

Set bread machine to Basic or Whole Wheat Bread Mode/Light or Medium Crust (or whatever you like)

This makes a 2 pound loaf of delicious bread!

Remember you may need to adjust the liquids or change ingredients to customize to your needs.

Note: Fresh homemade bread doesn't have preservatives so if it doesn't get eaten the first day,

place in airtight container and in fridge or freeze. Very good for toast!
