Gluten Free Customizable Quinoa Bread Recipe

Since quinoa flour is high in protein, it helps to give structure to gluten-free breads and helps them rise a bit more. It also has a lovely taste when toasted – it becomes very nutty and fragrant. Of course, that is completely optional. I find that even when untreated, quinoa flour is simply delicious.

This is an easy bread to make and customize to the seasons! You can swap the mashed fruit for any fruit puree – pumpkin, banana, apple butter, pear butter, etc., to make it work best for the season you’re in. And feel free to change the add-ins as well!

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling or fruit puree of choice

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • Transfer the dough to the prepared pan. Sprinkle with a little extra sugar and cinnamon. Bake on the center rack for 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
