Cinnamon Almond Flour 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 simple spiced quick bread has a lovely texture and toasts up beautifully. I love serving it with almond butter and sliced banana for breakfast!

Ingredients
  • cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup quinoa flour
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or granulated sugar of choice
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line an 8x4-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, oil, syrup, and vinegar. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix until combined.
