Gingerbread Quinoa Coffee Cake, Strength & Sunshine

As if you needed another reason to wake up early on Christmas morning… This festive coffee cake tastes just like gingerbread, and is made gluten-free with a combination of quinoa and millet flours. Don’t skip the quinoa-flake crumb topping, either.

Quinoa Flour Pumpkin Bread, Eating Bird Food

We love this take on classic pumpkin bread, made with Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour and plenty of pumpkin pie spice. Sweetened with coconut sugar and apple sauce, it just so happens to be gluten-free and vegan as well.
