I’ve got 9 of the Best Ever Gluten-Free Quinoa Flour Recipes. Quinoa flour is a great way to go if you need to eat gluten-free. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and easy to work with and very healthy. Quinoa is high in protein and contains all nine essential amino acids, it is actually one of the few plant foods that do.
Quinoa is also high in fiber, iron, magnesium, B-vitamins, calcium, vitamin E and phosphorus and antioxidants. Quinoa has many health benefits. It is very nutritious, it contains quercetin and kaempferol. Quinoa is very high in fiber, it is gluten-free and high in protein.
Quinoa is low on the glycemic index which is wonderful for diabetics and people with hypoglycemia. It’s also high in iron and magnesium.
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 these gluten-free quinoa flour recipes are just what the title says, made with quinoa flour. If you are interested in recipes using other forms of quinoa, such as flakes or whole quinoa see my other posts below.

1. Quinoa Pumpkin Pancakes – Gluten Free Daddy
Quinoa Flour – Pumpkin Puree – Greek Yogurt – Eggs – Greek Yogurt – Pumpkin Pie Spice – Cinnamon – Baking Soda – Baking Powder – Real Salt – Molasses – Maple Syrup – Almond Milk – Apple Cider Vinegar – Vanilla – Eggs
These are some really healthy pancakes not to mention that they are also gluten-free. People who can’t eat gluten because they are allergic or sensitive to it are not the only people that eat gluten-free. I have Type II diabetes and I don’t eat gluten because of the carbs in it. Especially simple carbs like white flour. Quinoa is one food I’ve found that I can tolerate without any problems. I control my diabetes by eating healthy which means NO carbs and NO sugar. I also use some natural supplements. Whatever the reason you eat gluten-free you are going to love these pancakes. They are delicious. My children beg me to make them even when pumpkin isn’t particularly in season. They don’t care.
2. Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese Filling and Streusel Topping– Gluten Free Daddy
Quinoa Flour – Tapioca Starch – Oats – Pumpkin Puree – Apple Sauce – Milk – Mini Chocolate Chips – Cream Cheese – Baking Powder – Baking Soda – Real Salt – Brown Sugar – Eggs – Vanilla – Cinnamon Essential Oil – Powdered Sugar – Cinnamon – Butter
These muffins are decadent and rich and just what you’ve been looking for. These are gluten-free pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips and a cream cheese filling with streusel on top. The cream cheese filling is similar to what you’d find on top of a carrot cake. If you don’t want them to be so sweet you can leave out the cream filling and/or the streusel topping. They are still very good, just maybe more appropriate for breakfast. The quinoa flour makes them protein rich and very healthy except for the filling and topping.
3. Quinoa Chocolate Cake with Brown Sugar Streusel – Gluten Free Daddy
This is made with zucchini and quinoa and it’s topped with a brown sugar streusel topping in place of frosting. Our house full of zucchini right now. Seriously, my husband the zucchini in the garden one night and it was too small to pick. The next morning he checked on it again and it was huge. So what do I do with a huge zucchini? You guessed it. I made chocolate cake. I like to use quinoa flour for this cake because it’s grain-free plus it gives it a subtle, nutty taste and it makes it light and moist.ake with it would be a gluten-free chocolate cake recipe. I chose to use Quinoa flour because it’s grain-free and is great for baking because it lends a subtle, nutty flavor to the cake.
4. The Best Cinnamon Roll Cake – Gluten Free Daddy
I know that cake isn’t the same as rolls. BUT I thought that some of you might be as lazy as I am. Rolling out the dough and layering the ingredients cutting it up and waiting for them to rise takes a lot of work and time. If you don’t have a lot of time but you would still like the flavors of cinnamon rolls this is a good way to go. This just may be the best cake I’ve ever eaten. I can’t taste the quinoa because the cinnamon masks the taste of it so well. You could eat these for breakfast if you don’t mind the sugar.
5. Pumpkin Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Brown Sugar Icing – Gluten Free Daddy
Pumpkin Puree – Quinoa Flour – Gluten-Free Oat Flour – Tapioca Flour – Chocolate Chips – Butter – Brown Sugar – Vanilla – Egg – Baking Powder – Baking Soda – Real Salt – Cinnamon – Milk – Powdered Sugar
You can make this pumpkin cookie recipe with either fresh or canned pumpkin puree. Having said that I think the canned pumpkin works better because the consistency is a little thicker. I had some pumpkin leftover from something else I made. This turned out to be the perfect way to use it up. I made these cookies for a cousin party and let the kids frost the cookies themselves. The cookies and letting them frost their own was a big hit, to say the least. These cookies feel like little mouth pillows in your mouth. They just melt in your mouth.
6. Simple Quinoa Crackers – Amy’s Healthy Baking
When any recipe has only 4 ingredients you know it’s going to be easy to make. Afterall you only need to find 4 things. That shouldn’t be very hard. These crackers taste really good with cheese especially but they are also good with hummus and any other dip. They bake a little crispier on the edges than in the middle like most everything else does. To solve that problem, just trim the outside edges off when they are ready and put the rest in the oven to cook a little longer.
7. Quinoa and Brown Rice Tortillas – Craftberry Bush
Quinoa Flour – Brown Rice Flour – Water – Oil
Another recipe with very few ingredients. This time there are 4 ingredients, so, ya, pretty easy to make. Tortillas are usually pretty easy to make anyway. The best part about these is are gluten-free because they are made with quinoa and brown rice flour. It’s a great combination for tortillas in my opinion.
8. Quinoa Almond Flour Bread – Simply Quinoa
Sometimes making my own bread isn’t so much fun but I have never found any gluten-free bread in the store that I like. So I found this gluten-free bread recipe that doesn’t use yeast and doesn’t need to rise. It’s made in the food processor and only takes 30 minutes to bake. So, with all the changes it’s so much easier and quicker to make. Now, I feel like making bread again.
9. Banana Chocolate Chip Quinoa Flour Waffles – Ambitious Kitchen
If you think quinoa flour is too expensive to buy try making your own. It’s pretty much like any other flour you can make on your own. Just buy the dry quinoa. I get mine at Winco. Then either grind it in a coffee grinder or a blender until it’s a fine flour. It’s pretty easy to do and a lot less expensive. These waffles quite fluffy and light. They are nice and light in the middle and crispy on the outside the way a waffle should be. You won’t be sorry you tried them. Just think of all the protein you’ll be eating.
