I recently had to make a gluten-free treat for a friend and the recipe called for quinoa flour. Admittedly, I was unsure about baking with it since I never had before. But, I gave it a go and it turned out beautifully! It turns out that quinoa flour yields a wonderfully moist and delicious baked good.
It is light and fluffy and ideal for anyone eating a gluten-free diet. It is also great when combined with regular flour because it lightens the baked good and adds a little whole grain goodness. Here are some delicious treats that can be made with quinoa flour. Give them a try even if you have never baked with quinoa flour before; I can guarantee you will love it!
