Baking with quinoa flour can be easy and delicious.  Quinoa is considered a grass/seed, not a grain but is technically a chenopod, like beets, spinach and tumbleweeds.  That’s why quinoa is so nutritious and has a light, nutty flavor.
I love quinoa.  It also comes in several forms, including the whole grain, flour, puffs and flakes and several different colors. All of the recipes here are made with quinoa flour.

Have you tried quinoa flour before? Do you like the taste and do you have any tips to make cooker with it easier?

    • I’m not even kidding when I say that my 2 year old’s favorite food is quinoa. She can even say it plain as day and can never wait for us to finish cooking it.

  1. I’ve heard a lot about quinoa recently and have been interested in trying it. I didn’t even realize that it came in a flour form. Wow! Many possibilities!

  2. I have never tried quinoa before… in any form. I am trying to find some new healthy recipes so I will have to give some of those a try…..

  3. I always taste any flour or dry mix I use to get an idea of what to expect. I have just opened a bag of Quinoa flour. It has a bitter taste to it, not like spelt which has a nutty flavor. How do I get rid of the bitter.

    • Well, the best way I’ve found is to cover it up. Like, if you put it in chocolate cake you can’t taste it at all. Or I use it as breading and I love the flavor. But on it’s own it’s kind of bitter. I want to try tortillas next but I’m not sure how they will taste without something to hide the flavor. It’s not gross, it’s just kind of strong. Now, Buckwheat I personally really would rather not eat. Quinoa is pretty easy to get used to.

    • this is how you can get rid of earthy taste and smell of the Quinoa Flour
      Preheat oven to 212 or 215 F (100 C)
      Empty out bag of quinoa flour onto as many sheet pans as you need, preferably onto a new piece of parchment paper
      Make sure the layer of flour is no deeper than 1/4″
      Place in preheated oven for two hours
      Remove from oven. Allow to cool. Place in bags
      Store bag in freezer for up to 8 months if you are not planning to use flour soon. Whole quinoa flour is relatively high in fat, making it vulnerable to oxidation and rancidity. Freezing will extend the shelf-life.
      Use as you would any other gluten-free flour

  4. i read yesterday that wheat flour has been changed since 1960 and should be eliminated, to be healthy. i believe it to be true. i love baking and eating so i am glad to find the pb cookie recipe. i’m not done looking by along shot.

  5. These all look great. I’m especially interested in the pizza crust but when I click on it, I get an error page. Would you please re-post the recipe?

    Thank you

  6. Thank you for your creative Quinoa recipes. I have made the quinoa pizza crust and used my own toppings . Made it with basil, parsley, spinach , pine nuts and fresh tomato, garlic and a squese of lemon pesto for the base. Topped it with savory yeast and my own healthy vegetarian toppings. It tasted delicious. Certainly will make it again!!! I felt so good after eating it. Not bloated like with a wheat based pizza!!! So thank you again!!
    Next ,I will make the quinoa spaghetti!

  7. I’ve had some quinoa flour for some time now and I haven’t known what to do with it! Thank you, can’t wait to try the pancakes!
