What is Kamut Flour?
Kamut Flour is wheat flour that has been derived from ancient grains dating all the way back to the Egyptians.
Kamut Flour Benefits
This flour in particular is arguably superior to both all purpose flours and even many other wheat flours since it is grown certified organic, is never genetically modified, and naturally contains much higher amounts of protein, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals than most other flours. It is also a very low histamine flour, potentially making it suitable for low histamine diets as well.
Kamut Flour Flavor Profile
Kamut Flour is often described as having a “nutty” flavor. In my opinion, it has very “earthy” taste to it too that is really brought to life when paired with the buttermilk in this muffin recipe. Kamut is also gives a much more dense texture to baked goods that is perfect for muffins.
How to make Kamut Flour Blueberry Muffins
Prep your muffin tin with non-stick spray and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Next, add the 1/2 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix well.
Mix in the all purpose flour and the kamut flour 1/2 cup at a time until the batter is smooth. It should be very thick and sticky at this point. After all of the flour is well combined, gently fold in the fresh blueberries with a spoon, making sure not to “pop” them while mixing.
Kamut Flour Blueberry Muffins: Step 4
Divide your batter evenly into a 12 cup muffin tray and sprinkle the tops with course raw sugar. Bake the Kamut Flour Blueberry Muffins for 20-22 minutes until the tops have a golden brown crumb. Serve warm from the oven with butter. (Bonus points is you use your leftover butter milk from my Homemade Butter recipe and serve these with your own Homemade Butter!)

Can you use Kamut Flour for All Purpose Flour?
Yes. You can substitute all purpose flour for Kamut Flour. It has a much denser texture though so the general rule is for each (1) Cup of all purpose flour, replace it with 3/4 Cup of Kamut Flour. Kamut flour will also slightly change the flavor of your recipe.
