View Full Version : Substitute wheat berries or buckwheat groats for kamut?

I have a recipe for bagels that calls for sprouted kamut. I haven't been able to find kamut grain locally so I'm looking for an alternative. I'm really not crazy about ordering food on the internet but I will if necessary. Would sprouting wheatberries or buckwheat groats give me a similar texture, taste, flourlike consistency ... ? whatever it would take to be a suitable substitute. Almond flour and ground flax (flax in much smaller proportion) are also part of the mix. Thanks, Clare
Kamut is a type of wheat (I grow it for wheatgrass juice) - so my *guess* would be wheatberries would sub out well. I'm just guessing though as I haven't tried it in an actual recipe. *Ü*

Thanks Deb. And I was just browsing through Alissa's book and in grains she says kamut is similar to wheatberries. So, good "guess!"
