Finally, Part 3 of three in my quinoa series is live! Sorry this has taken so long, I had some major computer issues. This quinoa banana bread, is sure to be popular at your house. Why? It has all those familiar flavors of banana bread, but you can have an extra slice since it’s so healthy :) With 100% whole wheat flour to healthy quinoa for a nutty flavor and added protein, I know you and your family will love this bread. No yeast, no rise time, delicious hot out of the oven!
Let get cooking!

Quinoa Banana Bread Ingredients:
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 quinoa, soaked in 1/2 water
1/3 cup dairy
1/3 cup eggs whites or 2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1.5 teaspoon of baking powder
1 ripe banana cut up
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened or melted
Soak 1/2 cup quinoa in the 1/2 cup water now and let it soak for about 30 min while you prepare and gather your other ingredients
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Add all the ingredients to the mixer, when adding the banana cut it up and the mixer will do the rest.
Run the mixer for about 2 minutes until it is all the same consistency.
Pour into a greased loaf pan. (Unless you are using a USA loaf pan)
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. This bread takes a while to cook. Remove from oven when a toothpick inserted into the middle come out clean. I usually test a couple spots.
Cool your loaf on a wire rack for about 15 minutes.
Sliced and enjoy!
Bread is easily frozen. I usually slice mine before freezing so I can defrost just a little at a time as needed.
