Gluten-Free Quinoa Biscuits

These aren’t sweet. Not at all. That’s why I cut them out in adorable hearts – to entice you to try them all the same. They are dry, crunchy, seemingly salty, and ideal for dipping in tea. These biscuits are plain. You could serve them with spicy soup or drizzle honey on top, as I did; they work well either way.
The dough is crumbly and a bit temperamental to work with, but the result is good. If you have patience, you will be happy in the end. My next try with this recipe will include some herbs. Quinoa flour has a rather distinct flavor that, in my opinion,  lends itself better to savory.  However,  I have heard that it suits dark chocolate too!

Have you ever tried baking with quinoa flour?  How did it turn out?
