This is a nice crunchy treat that can serve as either a snack or a carbohydrate portion. Amaranth is very healthy for most types (especially A's and AB's). If you always thought Amaranth was a chore to eat or has a weird taste or aroma, this recipe will change your mind and make it a joy to eat.
How to make it:
- 1/4 cup of Amaranth Seed
- 1 teaspoon of Cocoa Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Agave or other compliant sweetener
- 1/4 teaspoon (more or less according to personal taste) of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Ginger Powder, and/or other favorite spices
- Heat a large, deep, heavy soup pot on high for a few minutes until extremely hot.
- Add the Amaranth Seed and cover with a lid.
- The seed will start to pop.
- Monitor closely so that the seeds do not burn.
- Turn off heat and remove from heat.
- Remove lid to let the steam escape.
- Pour the seed into a bowl.
- To the bowl, add the compliant sweetener, Cocoa Powder, and spices, BT compliant.
- Mix well with a spoon.
- If you eat it immediately, it is a warm, sticky, crunchy treat that you can eat with a spoon.
- It also can be formed into balls to be served later as a finger-food treat.
- If you let the mixture cool, then you have to break it up with a spoon.
- You could then add a compliant milk and serve it as a breakfast cereal.
- Or just eat it with a spoon for a tasty, crunchy treat.
- A variation to this recipe would be to add a little melted ghee and some chopped nuts and dates, and you would have a nice mixture for some crunchy date nut balls.
