HOW TO GRIND FLOUR FROM WHOLE GRAINS
It’s easy to make your own flour from grains such as wheat berries, spelt berries, rye berries, quinoa, pearled barley, amaranth, buckwheat, and more!  Homemade flour is cheap, delicious, healthy, and surprisingly simple to make in a high powered blender such as a Blendtec or Vitamix, because both of these blenders are capable of grinding whole grains into flour in seconds!

The very easy practice of soaking milled flour overnight or sprouting seeds first will vastly improve its nutritional benefits and reduce the negatives from the phytic acid and the enzyme inhibitors in the grains.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Homemade bread not only tastes better, but it avoids the massive amounts of preservatives that gives bread a lengthy shelf life.  Here’s what a slice of popular store purchased bread contains.

Enriched wheat flour (flour, barley malt, ferrous sulfate (iron), “B” vitamins (niacin, thaimine mononitrate (B1), riboflavin (B2), folic acid)), water, high fructose corn syrup or sugar, yeast, wheat bran, whole wheat flour, wheat gluten, molasses. Contains 2% or less of: soybean oil, salt, sweet dairy whey, butter (cream, salt, enzymes), maltodextrin, honey, corn syrup, calcium sulfate, soy flur, dough conditioners (may contain: dicalcium phosphate, calcium dioxide, sodium stearoyl lactylate, ethoxylated mono and diglycerides, mono and diglycerides, and/or datem), yeast nutrients (may contain: ammonium sulfate, ammonium chloride, calcium carbonate, monocalcium phosphate, and/or ammonium phosphate), cornstarch, wheat starch, vinegar, natural flavor, beta carotene (color), enzymes, calcium propionate (to retain freshness), soy lecithin.

Bread made from scratch is NOT complicated and requires basic ingredients.  Replace all purpose flour with the homemade flour of your choosing and try it out!  There’s no end to the possibilities and variations once you try it. 🙂

    1. Hi Kittie!

      There is no need to soak the flour overnight. After you grind everything up in your blender you are good to go!

  1. Thank you for your comprehesive review – all is true! My family has been VitaMix users since 1995. it is, hands-down, the best tool in the kitchen.

  2. I get you on the "stop pinning and start doing" part. I'm gearing up to sew and have gathered TONS of supplies but have yet to turn on the sewing machine.

  3. This is what I found to be in bread fiour…….“Enriched wheat flour (flour, barley malt, ferrous sulfate (iron), “B” vitamins (niacin, thaimine mononitrate (B1), riboflavin (B2), folic acid)), water, high fructose corn syrup or sugar, yeast, wheat bran, whole wheat flour, wheat gluten, molasses.

  4. So I have been on pinterest again!!! I LOVE IT!! I have so many pins and ideas that I want to do. I just need to stop pinning and actually make them, so I can enhance my home making skills, and life would be easier. RIGHT?! Anyhow, I came across one of my boards, which is called canning. I found one pin that said I should make these 7 things instead of buying them. One of them were bread. So as I looked at all the ingredients of what it takes to make shelf like bread and YUCK! all those processed food ingredients. No wonder people have allergies these days. So I looked up on how to make wheat or whatever flour I wanted in a vitamix. If you don't have a vitamix by now, I would suggest it. PEOPLE, You won't believe how easy to do it. TRUST ME, it is a lot healthier for you. So, I challenge you to be healthier this month and try to make it a lifestyle. AMERICA! we need to claim back the basics of life. Technology is great and everything, but living a fulfilled life is even better.

      That’s a good questions Ureka. It depends on how dry or moist the corn silage is. It must be very dry to be turned into a flour to use. We have never tested this – so if you do please keep us posted on how it turned out!
