Quinoa flour is versatile. It adds rich flavor and complete protein while enhancing the nutrition of countless dishes. However, as this flour lacks gluten, it needs to be used in conjunction with other flours in things like risen breads and piecrusts. Try adding up to 50 percent quinoa flour to pancakes, waffles, cookies, muffins, biscuits and cakes. Here are some recipes to get you started... you'll discover many more!
The Quinoa Story
The Inca called this grain Quinoa or "the Mother Grain" in their ancient language. So important was quinoa to their diet that the mighty Inca king planted the first row of quinoa each year with a solid gold spade.
Grown in the mighty Andes Mountains of South America, quinoa dates back over 5,000 years. This tiny seed, no bigger than a mustard seed, once fed an ancient civilization stretching from the seacoast of Chile to the snow-capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes, the vast Inca Empire.
Now you too can enjoy the goodness of quinoa in an instant with Quinoa Flour. Made from 100% organically grown quinoa, our flour is a great source of balanced protein and important minerals like calcium and iron. Quinoa's easy digestibility is also an added bonus for children and those on restricted diets!
Excellent for use in wheat-free and gluten-free diets!

I find this gluten-free flour excellent for baking cupcakes and making pancakes. Recently I added some green pea flour and quinoa flakes to the recipe and they taste great. In addition. I added some orange essential oil and that made my cupcakes and pancakes more fluffy than usual.
I'm looking for ways to avoid wheat flour and this is IT! I a make vegan burgers with quinoa, lentils, mixed veges and chia seed (as egg replacer) and the quinoa flour helps it all bind together. I am having fun in the kitchen again!
has sour taste!!!
