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.

What You'll Need

  • 1/3 cup uncooked quinoa (or 1/2 cup quinoa flakes)
  • 2/3 cup water (cooking quinoa grains; not needed if using quinoa flakes)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour

How to Make It

  1. Add the quinoa to a saucepan and cover with the water (if using quinoa flour instead of raw quinoa, skip this step). Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, covered.
  2. Turn off heat and let quinoa sit, covered, for 10 minutes.
  3. Add all ingredients to bread machine, including cooked quinoa (or quinoa flour), according to manufacturer's directions.
  4. Program machine for a whole grain loaf and bake.
  5. Let bread cool before slicing.
