How to Make Quinoa Flour [Vegan/Gluten Free]

Here’s a funny story.  I took these pictures the first week of December … Twenty-Thirteen.  Opps.  I had essentially forgotten about them, until I was making qunioa flour a few weeks back and thought “did I ever write that blog post?!”  

So…here you go.  Quiona Flour.  And year-old-pictures.  

What is Quinoa flour used for? It is an awesome gluten free baking substitute.  And, being high in protein, iron and fiber – it makes anything you’re cooking much healthier.  

Quinoa flour may take a few more steps than other nut or rice flours – but the result of the extra steps is totally worth it.  Toasting the quinoa removes the bitter flavor, and makes much more enjoyable baked items 🙂 

Step 1 – Measure out 2 cups of Qunioa and put it in a pan on the stove.DSCN2589Step 2 – Toast over medium heat until it begins to brown.  Stir frequently.  It will also begin to “pop” like popcorn.  

Step 3 – Let the qunioa cool to room temperature.  DSCN2597Step 4 – Blend the quinoa until it is completely smooth.
