    I LOVE all the items at this website. I purchased some Einkorn whole grain flour but did not know that one would put in a bit less liquid. Still, the orange banana bread I made came out so great. It is a bit too dense. How does one tell EXACTLY how much less liquid to use when making a recipe in a regular cookbook that calls for regular flour ?

    Also, most items are pretty costly. Is there any trick one could use to get a better price? I was lucky to get the flour a few months back when you had a special on it…..

      Hi Toby, I would highly recommend you sign up for our newsletters, we send them one out at least monthly and they always have a discount code on them for all the products on our online store! Regarding the liquid, it is hard to tell, without testing them ourselves I’m not sure we could answer that exactly- it depends on what other ingredients are in the recipe as well- sorry!
