Having a baking extravaganza ushers in the holiday season. Your extravaganza might be making gluten-free apple strudel with your kids or assembling gingerbread houses with a group of friends.

Spelt flour is a fantastic whole grain for baking. It’s another flour that is good to start experimenting with. If you’re looking to bake something that is light and crumbly then spelt flour can be the answer to your dreams.
