Vermont B&B’s Easy Quinoa Bread: It’s Gluten-Free!

We make this gluten-free bread for our Maple Leaf Inn breakfasts and even those who are not gluten intolerant love it. It’s super easy to make, nutritious, delicious, and freezes well. I especially like it with a smear of peanut better. Enjoy!Baking ingredients including a scoop of flour, an egg, and a whisk.
