2-Ingredient Quinoa Flax Breads {vegan, oil-free, GF}

VGFNF

You need to make a batch of my super-simple 2-ingredient quinoa flax breads asap! They are naturally vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and perfect for all kinds of toppings.

Two. Ingredient. Bread.

Toothsome, crispy-edged, tender in the middle bread.

It’s real. And it’s d#*n delicious!

It is also the direct product of committing to a year of posting portable power pucks made in a muffin tin. It’s making me blend, stir and experiment in ways I would not otherwise have done.

My initial thought with this bread was to use quinoa, flaxseed meal, walnuts, olive oil, and some everything bagel seasoning I had made, forgotten about, and then discovered again. I put the thought to the (recipe) test, and it was super-tasty, albeit a touch greasy (flax + olive oil + walnuts). So I pared back. No olive oil. But did I need the walnuts? Or the special seasoning? What if…I only used two ingredients…

So I tried it.

If I could do a back-flip, it would have happened, stove-side, after taking my first bite.

This is a winner.

You can top it with hummus:

Or slather with PB & J:

Indulge with your favorite chocolate spread and a few cacao nibs:

And it’s a perfect breakfast with a dollop of nondairy yogurt and  fruit:

 

What I’m trying to say, is that this is bread. And, as such, you can top it with all kinds of healthy, yummy toppings.

Also, I excel at pointing out the obvious. To further emphasize that point, these mini breads are also delectable all by themselves.

I am so excited about this recipe that I have not even mentioned how it’s made. It goes like this: process cooked, cooled quinoa in a food processor, blend in flaxseed meal, water and salt, bake in a muffin tin, and there you go. Just imagine all of the fun variations with this basic recipe, from herbs, spices, seasonings, sweeteners, and more.

Feeling excited? I hope so. I certainly am.

Now go forth, bake, eat, and jump for joy!

How much DRY quinoa do I have to cook? Is it 2 cups before cooking it, or 2 cups already cooked quinoa? Thanks. Love your site!

Hi Camilla I'm looking forward to make this! Can I make it into a loaf or they need to go in the cupcake tin?

Hi Cho!

This won't bake into a regular loaf, but you could spread the mixture into a square or round tin to cut into squares or wedges.
