It was so yummy!!!! It's a great recipe and easy to use :-) thank u to whoever posted this one cuz this was my first Attempt at baking gluten-free! :-) yummy!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook quinoa and set aside. To cook quinoa, bring two cups of water to a boil. Add quinoa and a dash of salt and let simmer for 12-15 minutes, or until water has cooked off.
  2. Mix dry ingredients.
  3. Whisk butter and eggs together and add to dry mixture.
  4. Combine all ingredients, including quinoa, and stir in apple pieces.
  5. Pour into a greased 9-inch round pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes at 350°F.
  6. The best part about this recipe? It tastes great with a multitude of extras thrown inches Play around with a handful of chocolate chips and some candied ginger for a real treat.
  7. Note: This recipe works great for vegans too – just switch out the butter for margarine and the eggs for an egg replacer.
