Best Quinoa Flour Recipes

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 it so nutritious and has a light, nutty flavor.  I love it.  It also comes in several forms, including the whole grain, flour, puffs and flakes and several different colors.  It can be difficult to find good quinoa flour recipes, so we’ve come up with some of the best quinoa recipes.  We’ve looked hard to find gluten-free quinoa flour recipes so please let us know if any of them are not gluten free.

For purchasing or making quinoa flour, there are several options.  Please read these articles for more information – Where to Buy Quinoa Flour Online and How to Make Quinoa Flour and Take Out the Bitter Taste.  For more quinoa recipes on our blog, please read our post on quinoa dessert recipes.

    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!

    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

    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

    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…..

    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!

      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.
