Note

• As quinoa flour may have a bitter taste, buying whole quinoa and making the flour yourself is better. It may take a little longer, but you are sure the bread buns will not have a bitter taste.

• You may use a food processor or a blender to whizz the quinoa. The food processor will take a little bit longer than the blender.

• Cover them with aluminum foil or baking paper during the baking stage if the buns are starting to crack but are not cooked in the middle. This way will stop them from drying on the outside and continue to cook inside.
