    Can I make quinoa flour by just grinding the quinoa seeds up to a powder?

      Yes, you can! I use a cheep coffee grinder to grind small amounts at a time. Be sure to use a washed quinoa seed, however, or it will not taste very good. If you have unwashed quinoa, rinse well, then allow to dry before grinding. I put rinsed quinoa on a clean kitchen towel on a jelly roll pan in a thin layer to dry. Hope that helps!

    There is a typo on the recipe…. lists baking powder twice. thankfully I figured it was soda and it worked! :) Awesome muffins! I subbed brown rice flour for the quinoa flour (didn’t have any) and they were d’lish! thanks for passing along!

    These sound yummy, but we are not DFGF in our house and on a thin budget. How could I adapt these for us? I’m thinking I need to replace the sorhgum and tapioca flours and the xantham gum. I just don’t know what to sub in.
