Emmer wheat is one of the three hulled wheats (einkorn, spelt and emmer) known in Italy as farro. Sometimes called “Pharaoh’s Wheat.” Like all the ancient and heirloom wheats, they do contain gluten. However, the structure of this ancient wheat’s gluten is different from that of modern types, so it’s often digestible by people with gluten sensitivity or wheat allergies!

  • 2 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 10 g Baking powder

  • 30 ml Buttermilk plus extra, for brushing
  • 50 g Dates, chopped
  • Pepita for topping, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. In a bowl, whisk together freshly milled emmer, almond meal, coconut sugar, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add in chopped dates and stir to combine.
  3. Make a well in centre of mixture. Add pumpkin and buttermilk. Stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until just smooth. Pat the dough into a 1-inch-thick round and cut into 8 wedges.
