This quinoa bread is abundant in protein, completely gluten-free and dairy-free! It’s crafted from a hearty blend of quinoa and oats.
Here’s everything you’ll need:
- quinoa – I used white quinoa, it has a better color for this bread recipe. It is gluten-free, full of nutrition and fiber.
- fine rolled oats – I used fine rolled oats, use gluten-free certified if necessary
- baking powder – a baking ingredient, works as a rising agent
- apple cider vinegar – reacts with the baking powder and helps the rising of the bread
- salt – I used Himalayan salt to enhance the flavor

How to Make Quinoa Bread
Step 1: Soak the quinoa – Soak quinoa overnight in a medium bowl with plenty of water. Then, rinse and drain well.
Step 2: Blend quinoa and water – Put the drained quinoa and one cup of water in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Step 3: Mix everything together – Transfer the quinoa mixture into a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients (oats, baking powder, vinegar, and salt). Whisk until everything is well combined. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Step 4: Bake the quinoa bread– Put the bread mixture in the baking pan. Smooth the surface. Sprinkle some sunflower seeds, flax seeds, poppy seeds, and pumpkin seeds on top. Bake for about 1 hour.
Let the bread cool slightly before slicing it. You can put it on a cooling rack and enjoy!
- Add more flavor to the bread – you can add your favorite fresh or dried herbs, like thyme, basil, sage, Italian seasoning, etc., spices – onion or garlic powder, sun-dried tomatoes, or thinly chopped olives.
- Gluten-free option – use certified gluten-free oats if necessary.
- Allow to cool completely – transfer the bread to a cooling rack and let it rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing.
How to Store
Let cool completely before storing.
Room temperature: Let cool, then store at room temperature covered for 3 days.
I don’t recommend storing it in the fridge since this vegan quinoa bread may become a bit moister. To dry it out, just toast it as needed.
Freezer: This vegan quinoa bread is absolutely freezer-friendly. You can freeze the whole loaf or freeze it in slices in a freezer bag or container for up to 3 months. Let thaw at room temperature, then toast the bread before serving.
How to Serve
- Make a toast – sweet or savory it’s your choice. Maybe top it with avocado slices or almond butter and banana.
- Enjoy with a dip – like this homemade guacamole, healthy zucchini and walnut dip, or this 10-minute bean dip
- Serve alongside soups and stews – like this Cauliflower Soup, Broccoli Red Lentil Soup, or Coconut Lentil Curry.
