How To Bake With Quinoa Flour & How to Cook With Quinoa Flakes

Want to go beyond basic quinoa? Here’s what to look for next: quinoa flakes, which are a lot like rolled oats and can be used similarly, and quinoa flour, a great option for baking, especially gluten-free baking, as in EatingWell’s amazing gluten-free Almond Butter-Quinoa Blondies. Look for both products in well-stocked supermarkets or natural-foods stores. Wondering how to make your own quinoa flour? To make quinoa flour, grind white quinoa in a clean coffee grinder until it’s a fine powder. It won’t be quite as fine as what you get in the store, but will work in recipes for cookies and bars where a really fine texture is not necessary.
