Quinoa Bread Recipe for a Bread Maker...

This quinoa bread recipe is something of an anomaly on this site.

After all, we usually try to showcase quinoa facts and recipes that highlight it’s glorious gluten-free-ness.

Plus, we personally have a fairly restricted diet. And so in other words...

We typically shrink from sugar. But not with this recipe.

We dutifully dodge dairy. But not here.

We yelp at the thought of yeast. But not this time.

Yes, indeed -- in this recipe we even glory in gluten!

And we actually ended up having a lot of fun in the process.

So keep reading to figure out how to make some fun and tasty quinoa bread in your own bread machine!

The inlaws'

We made this bread recipe at my in-laws’ house over the holidays.

Now, let me explain -- quinoa is not at all my in-laws’ favorite food. In fact I think my father-in-law in particular is even a little suspicious of it!

But when they ate this bread they really liked it! Lori’s dad even said so. Believe me, this was high praise!


We thought that the bread looked nice and smelled delicious in the toaster.

And even though we try to stay away from gluten and yeast, we took a little taste. And… it. was. yummy!

And now... Yours!

Try it! We think you’ll agree.
