Gluten Free Cinnamon Quinoa Bread (with Flax Seed)

This bread is by far the best gluten-free bread I’ve ever tried to make. It’s not your traditionally bread but I really like this one. I’ve made different versions of this bread, here providing you with a more sweet, dessert-like version that goes well with ex. peanut butter for a quick snack. Check under notes for a more ‘savory’ version to use for lunch and dinner.


150g quinoa flakes

15g flax seed (or five-seed mix)

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp FiberHUSK (2g)

400 ml water

1/2 (heaping) tsp SØD liquid no-calorie sweetener (or other sweetener)

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add sweetener and water and let sit for about 5 minutes.

Spread mixture out on a rimmed baking sheet and make sure it’s thin and even.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, checking to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Let cool a bit before cutting out 20-24 pieces.

Makes approx 20 pieces, at 31 kcal each.


FiberHUSK is a danish product used in gluten-free baking that makes the breads more moist and gives a nice texture. If you don’t have it at home – or you don’t know were to buy it or something similar to this – feel free to leave it out. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m sure the bread will be just as good.

Savory version:

Leave out cinnamon and sweetener, and increase the amount of salt to 3/4 tsp. Also I use sunflower seeds instead of flax seed for this savory version (makes approx 15 pieces, at 43 kcal each).
