  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 whole eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 bananas mashed
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa cooked and cooled


  • Measure dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together
  • In another bowl, mix eggs, sugar and butter together
  • Fold in bananas
  • Mix in dry ingredients
  • Mix in quinoa
  • Spray loaf pans and divide batter between 4 mini loaf pans
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. 


Use cooked and cooled quinoa - you need one cup of already cooked quinoa for the bread.
I used four mini loaf pans. If using large pans increase baking time by 5-10 minutes. 
Cut each mini loaf into 8 slices. 
Test for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the middle of a loaf. If toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done.
