If you’re like me and prefer homely, freshly-baked and tailored to your preferences bread creations, these vegan quinoa bread rolls may be precisely what you need in your life right now.

The quinoa buns I present to you today are startlingly easy. So there’s no excuse not to give them a try!

Now, these aren’t traditional ‘fluffy’ write bread rolls, as you can see. They’re smaller, denser, with a chewier texture and don’t change shape a lot in the oven.

But spread them with some mashed avocado or vegan butter, and you’re very likely to eat the whole batch in one sitting! Well, in my humble opinion, that’s the only appropriate thing to do after a baking session.

Ingredients and substitutions

  • Ground flaxseed.
  • Quinoa. You can use store-brought quinoa flour, but I prefer to make my own version because not blending all of it entirely adds an amazing slightly crunchy texture.
  • Gluten-free oat flour. You can make your own simply by pulsing rolled oats in a blender or food processor for a couple of minutes.
  • Buckwheat flour.
  • Salt.
  • Baking powder.
  • Garlic granules. Feel free to add any other spices to really switch things up!
  • Lemon juice.
  • Baking soda.
  • Apple cider vinegar.

Tips & Tricks

Meal Prep. One of the great things about my quinoa bread roll recipe is that they last really well in the fridge. Keep the quinoa buns in an air-tight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. You can also freeze them for up to a month, reheating at room temperature, in the oven, or the microwave as necessary.

Serving. I love to serve my quinoa bread sliced in half, with a thick layer of mashed avocado or butter. You can also eat them by themselves as a snack or a side for a cozy vegan soup or chili.

Add spice. Make these your own by adding your own favorite herbs or spices, or mixing in a few tablespoons of nuts or seeds! You can also add chopped onion or fresh garlic.

Don’t overbake. Keep a close eye on them and make sure not to leave them in the oven for too long/at too high a temperature to prevent drying.
