This coming weekend is a good time to bake a wholesome Gluten-Free Quinoa Cheese Bread with Onions… so much flavour from the caramelized onions in this hearty cheesy bread. This quinoa cheese bread does not need anything else, it is tasty and good to eat just as is, and has also a good bread texture.

Is this gluten-free quinoa cheese bread healthy?

Short answer YES! Let me tell you why. This rustic bread is made with ingredients that add more than just flavour and texture. Let’s examine why. The basic ingredients in this quinoa cheese bread are olive oil, onions, quinoa, yogurt, parsley, cheese, cornmeal and rice flour.

This makes this yeast-free and xanthan-free bread rich in protein, fiber, calcium and beneficial antioxidants. All things that promote good health and keep us energized. For our body to stay healthy it is important to follow a well-balanced diet.

Why use quinoa in bread recipes?




Quinoa is a well known super seed, sometimes called a grain. This tiny seed is packed with protein and fiber. It also contains nine essential amino acids so it is excellent gluten-free plant food, especially for those that follow a plant-based diet.

Quinoa adds texture and mildly nutty flavour to baked goods making them heartier and more flavourful. By including quinoa in this bread recipe, I cut back on other nutrient-poor grains.

This tiny seed has a distinct flavour that some people may not like. This is why it’s important to use just the right amount of quinoa in a recipes. In this gluten-free quinoa bread recipe, I used a good mix of quinoa to get the health benefits and the right texture without overpowering the flavour of this delicious bread.

Few things to keep in mind about this gluten-free bread!

This gluten-free bread recipe is excellent for sandwiches. Unfortunately, it does not toast well because it is packed with so much goodness and textures. My favourite toppings for this bread are avocado, egg salad, salmon or fresh tomatoes.

You will like making this bread because it is super easy 🙂 I hope you will enjoy this bread as much as my family does.

Hi there. Can you substitute milk for oat milk ?


thank you Isla!


I forgot to put the yogurt in, but that is one the best dishes I've ever made. Incredibly skilled recipe choices there. So excited to have such a healthy chunky little loaf xxxx


Hi, it is 1/3 cup olive oil and all the yogurt 1 1/3 cups, and the onions. Sorry for the confusion, thank you.


Hi the instructions say 1/3 cup of yogurt but the ingredients say 1 1/3 cup X also I'm guessing to put onions in once everything's mixed up thanks


Hi Gill, are you thinking of replacing the rice flour? Arrowroot will not work because it is a starch, but you can use sorghum or cassava flour or add a teaspoon of whole psyllium husk to increase the fiber content. Enjoy!


Can I use an alternative flour such as arrowroot? I’m trying to do a high fiber diet.
