Barley flour has a slightly sweet, nutty flavor that works well in both sweet and savory recipes. Because barley flour is gluten-free, it can be used as a 1:1 substitute for wheat flour in most recipes. However, it does not have the same binding properties as wheat flour, so it may require additional ingredients like xanthan gum or eggs to help bind the ingredients together.
When baking with barley flour, it's important to note that it has a lower glycemic index than wheat flour, which means it can take longer to cook and brown. Keep an eye on your baked goods and adjust the cooking time as needed to prevent over- or under-cooking. Barley flour can also be used to thicken soups and stews, and can be added to smoothies or oatmeal for an extra nutritional boost.
Store barley flour in an airtight container in a cool, dry place to preserve its freshness and flavor. It can also be stored in the refrigerator or freezer for longer shelf life.
