Home made gluten free bread with ground quinoa and sesame seeds

Hi everyone,

I like baking my own bread and look for ways of improving it and one is to add protein especially to gluten free bread and I find some ground quinoa is really good and recently a member said how they ground sesame seeds and added them to bread so I've been trying that and it helps the bread stay moist longer and gives it more flavour and texture. I add substitute around 75 g ground seeds with flour and used GF brown bread flour.

I use a simple coffee grinder and often grind seeds to use instead of flour as they're gluten free tasty and nutritious.

I baked one large loaf and this small one which I have in 2 halves you can se that it's doubled in size.

I baked it this morning and had some for lunch. πŸ˜€ it's misty and raining outside and roasty toasty inside with bread baking...

Hi Jerry

Your homemade bread looks really great. Glad you enjoyed some for your lunch, on this misty day. Roasty toasty inside sounds great!

Thank you Zest we might as well make the most of things...😊

Hi Jerry

I love the look and sound if your bread, what excellent ideas you have when it comes to substituting flour, I love both seeds and quinoa.

We have the same weather here but have been occupied with grandchildren all day and had them overnight as well.😊

Thank you Alicia, I like the thought of buying a home flour mill and milling my own pulses seeds and more.

Really we are lucky having more than our fair share of rain as it keeps the countryside luscious. 😊

in reply to Jerry

I think that's a very good idea Jerry buying your own mill.

I agree, I might not like the rain much but we did have a very temperate climate here.😊

Bet your moist, homemade, ground quinoa & sesame seed bread 🍞 tastes d e l i c i o u s πŸ˜‹ , Jerry! Thank you kindly for sharing. πŸ™ 😌

If your up for noting πŸ“ mouthwatering πŸ‘„πŸ’¦ recipe, please do. πŸ‘πŸ‘

[Love 😍 sesame seeds. (Another one of those tasty foods forming base of food pyramid πŸ”Ί along with hummus, falafels πŸ§† , chocolate , … πŸ˜„ .)]

[Oh . . . we end up buying sesame seeds ’in bulk’ πŸ›’ ( amazon.co.uk/s?k=sesame+see... , amazon.com/s?k=sesame+seeds... ) β€” at far better cost than itty bitty 🀏 β€˜spice jars’ in spice aisle of supermarket. So nice having a HUGE container of seeds to dip into by scoopful πŸ₯„ rather than teeny weeny little jars that are gone in a few sprinklings.]

Hey thanks Kai-- thats a great compliment, I buy big bags of sesame seeds in the supermarket and they are much better value.

I tend to grind around 75g at a time so a silly little jar wouldn't go far...😊

Wow your bread looks great. I’m off work at the moment and doing bread making classes. How do you make low fat wholemeal bread? Any idea I’m really greatful feel free to pm me. I’m going this, healthy heart healthy me.

Hey thanks Pauline-L I have to bake gluten free bread and wholemeal bread doesn't need fat like GF does, so here's a link to the BBC's wholemeal bread recipes:


I hope this helps and we have a Home made bread Topic section:


So good luck and do let is know how you get on. 😊
