List of Ingredients

Barley, hulled


Ground from whole barley, this flour can give be used as a flavorful addition to any bread recipe.  

In yeast breads, the nutty flavor of barley flour can replace up to of the regular flour, and in quick breads and other baked goods, it can be used to replace up to of the flour called for by the recipe.  Barley flour can also be used in other cooking applications, such as acting as a thickener in soups and sauces.  Barley flour has less gluten than wheat and may not rise as well as a recipe made with wheat.

Barley flour is just what it sounds like: a non-wheat flour made from grinding whole barley. It’s a popular alternative to wheat flour because, unlike many non-wheat flours, it contains some gluten. This obviously doesn’t make it a good choice for those with Celiac’s, who cannot tolerate gluten, but it does mean that it is an excellent option for more conventional bakers looking to expand their skills by working with alternative flours.

When compared to regular all-purpose flour, there are some nutritional benefits to barley. It has slightly fewer calories and more than 4 times the fiber of all-purpose. It also has slightly more fiber than whole wheat flour.

Below is a little recipe for your bread machine that uses this flour.


1 1/2 c. water
1 T. olive oil
3 c. whole wheat bread flour
1 c barley flour
1 1/2 t. Saf-Instant yeast
2 t. light brown sugar
1 t. sea salt
1/4 c. raw sunflower seeds, shelled

Place all ingredients except the sunflower seeds into your bread machine in the sequence recommended by your manufacturer.

Select the cycle on your machine for dough.  When the machine beeps add the sunflower seeds.

When the dough cycle is complete, remove the bread to a floured surface and punch it down.  Shape it to fit into an oiled loaf pan.

Let it rise for 45 minutes.  Slit the crust  and dust with flour.

Let it rest 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 425F.  

Bake for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 400F and bake for an additional 20 minutes.  

The bread should sound hollow when tapped.  Let cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling and enjoy.
