    can i substiute quinoa flour for white flour?

    • The answer is yes and no.

      You can not substitute it 100%, but you could easily add 1/4 of a cup to any recipe. You can also mix quinoa with other flours and have great results. Typically 3 or more flours give the best results.

      Overall quinoa is best in smaller amounts. It is a wonderful flour that tastes great and is packed with nutrition and protein.

        What can we replace the wheat pastry flour with? daughter cant have wheat and we dont eat white flour

        • Living Healthy Mom says:

          You have entered the fun world of gluten free baking. For this recipe I would suggest replacing the wheat for blanched almond flour or brown rice flour and combining with the quinoa. (I have not tested it, but I would imagine it would be good.) Be sure to add 1 extra egg to if you do this recipe. More protein is needed to hold things together without the wheat. http://store.honeyvillegrain.com/blanchedalmondfl

          Try one of these gluten free recipes.

          I don\’t have any issues with wheat and I prefer baking with all the other flours. They add so much taste and TONS of vitamins and minerals. http://www.livinghealthymom.com/tag/gluten-free-r

          So many flours to have fun with….quinoa, amaranth (in small doses) millet, coconut flour, gluten free oat flour, brown rice flour, garbanzo bean flour etc…HAVE FUN!
