Organic Quinoa Flakes
Organic quinoa flakes (pronounced keen-wah) was once called "the gold of the Incas" for increasing the stamina of Incan warriors.
Quinoa, the "mother grain," is an extremely nutritious seed. It has a protein value that is extremely high (12-18%) and the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Because of this, it takes less quinoa protein to meet one's protein need than wheat protein. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron.
Cooking quinoa flakes is easy. You can prepare them on the stove top by bringing 1 cup of water to boil in a saucepan, adding 1/3 cup of quinoa flakes, and letting the quinoa cook for about 90 seconds. Turn off the heat and allow them to cool slightly. The mixture will thicken.
You can also prep them in the microwave by combining 1 cup of water and 1/3 cup of quinoa flakes in a microwave-safe bowl that's twice the volume of the serving size being prepared. Microwave on HIGH for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes until thickened. Stir well before serving.

“I placed order late Sunday and received it on Thursday. That is quick!!!! Can hardly wait to get some gluten free granola made. My recipe for a quick breakfast using the quinoa flakes. Microwave one cup almond milk and two tablespoons raisins or dried cranberries for one minute. Add 1/3 cup quinoa flakes and microwave an addition 30 seconds. Some times I add vanilla, shredded cocoanut or sliced almonds. Being gluten intolerant, I use the quinoa flakes in meat balls, meat loaf and crab cakes. A life saver for me.”

“Ordering from your site was simple; delivery was efficient; and your food is delicious. I was able to order quinoa flakes, which are not available where I shop. I love all the "funnies" on the shipping box. : )”

“I received Quinoa Flakes as part of my order for the purpose of a hot porridge. Because quinoa is in the bean family, it has a beany taste, so I prefer to mix it with oatmeal (grain). Here is a YUMMY way to prepare a nice bowl of quinoa porridge.
Cinnamon Quinoa Oatmeal
Prepare like instant oatmeal. (1 serving size)
Over the stove top:
1&1/4 Cup of boiling water (throw dried fruit in water before you boil, they will absorb some water)
1/4 Cup chopped small dried fruit (raisins added is tasty)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon/sugar
1/4 Cup of Quinoa Flakes
1/4 Cup of Oatmeal Flakes
Bring water and fruit to a boil, add flakes and cook over medium/high heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
*I Love to put 2 tbsp. of half-n-half, 1/4 Cup of milk and 2 tbsp. of Organic brown sugar on top of my prepared oatmeal. The cream really enhances the flavor of the quinoa and oatmeal. Enjoy :)
Thank you Nuts.com for all your wholesome goodness!”

“Your products are wonderful and your services even better. I do not even mention your funny emails.
I have ordered from your web site before and again it's more than pleasant experience.
I used to order quinoa flakes from CA and now finally u, East coast, has what I need.
I had a friend visiting from NJ this past weekend and I recommended your services; he lives 40min away from your location but never heard about you.
Do you have a physical building/store that people can stop by and shop? Or only online.

We've gotten the baby dried strawberries, the freeze dried strawberries, all of the quinoa products (flakes, puffed, flour, original), and their dried chopped apples are perfect mix-in to oatmeal.
