Bread Machine Recipe for Quinoa Oatmeal Bread

Bread Machine Quinoa Bread

Marian Blazes

Add this nutritious quinoa oatmeal bread to your collection of bread machine recipes. Quinoa is a high-protein grain grown in the Andean mountain regions of South America. It has a nutty flavor and chewy texture - delicious in this wholesome bread.

Raw quinoa grains need to be cooked before adding them to bread, or substitute quinoa flakes (a processed form of quinoa meant to be eaten as hot cereal which resembles oatmeal) for the cooked quinoa and eliminate that extra step.

If you don't have a bread machine, don't worry. Try this recipe for honey quinoa bread made the old-fashioned way.

Water is Not an Ingredient, Member MontyDog11

My first try for this bread was a disaster. The dough was much, much too wet. I discovered the problem, though. I thought the 2/3rd cup of water was an ingredient to be put into the bread machine. It is not; it's to cook the quinoa. Don't put water into the bread machine.
