  • 1 1/2 cups Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (only if your PB isn't already salted)
  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup creamy all natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dairy free, if desired)


  1. First, toast your quinoa flour by placing a large skillet over low heat. Add in the quinoa flour and stir every few minutes for 10-15 minutes. This will remove the bitterness and overwhelming quinoa flavor from the flour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8x4 inch or 9x5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together toasted quinoa flour, oat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. In a separate large bowl, beat together bananas, honey, egg, peanut butter and almond milk until smooth and creamy. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Next slowly fold in chia seeds and chocolate chips. 

  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45-55 minutes or until toothpick comes come clean or with just a few crumbs attached. Cool on a wire rack in pan for 10-15 minutes then cut into 16 slices and enjoy!
