Quinoa flour is a nutritious ingredient that can be used in everything from cookies to pancakes! Try using quinoa flour in place or regular flour for additional protein, fiber, and nutrients.
What is quinoa flour?
Quinoa flour is made from grinding quinoa into a fine powder, similar to flour. Quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain, meaning this flour is completely gluten-free.
Where can you buy quinoa flour?
What can you make with quinoa flour?
You can make all kinds of recipes including cookies, pancakes, muffins, and bread! This flour is different than all purpose flour, so you do have to make some changes to a recipe. I wouldn’t recommend substituting quinoa flour for regular flour cup-for-cup.

Quinoa Flour Cookies
The great thing about these cookies is that I truly think it tastes like a regular cookie. Sure, it’s made with a healthier flour and it’s gluten-free, but it has real sugar, eggs (with the yolk!) and chocolate chips, so you’re not skimping on the ingredients. I’d like to think of this as a real cookie with a healthy twist. Get the recipe below!Print

These cookies have a super soft and fluffy texture. It’s almost like a cross between a cookie and a muffin. You could also add in almonds, walnuts, or coconut flakes if you wanted to add a little more texture!
