Biscuits Einkorn Kefir (Buttermilk)

These are crunchy and golden on the outside, soft and moist on the inside and indescribably delicious! Please check out the Comments below, especially Rashida who has been experimenting with this recipe to adapt it to her own cooking style!

Total Time25 mins
Servings: 12 biscuits


  • 2 cups Einkorn flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt (USE LESS if your butter is salted)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter Room temp or chilled are OK
  • 1 cup milk kefir or buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 450° F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and then cut into flour mixture with fork and knife or pastry blender. When the flour looks grainy, mix in the kefir (or buttermilk). The dough will be thick and sticky.
  • Spoon dough onto parchment-lined baking sheet into 12 roughly equal portions.
  • Bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the rough peaks begin to brown. Serve while still warm.


If you have any of these left, they can be kept in a container in the fridge for 2-3 days and rewarmed in the microwave (keep them covered, 30 seconds should do it).
