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.

  • Snack

  • 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

How to make it:
  1. Heat a large, deep, heavy soup pot on high for a few minutes until extremely hot.
  2. Add the Amaranth Seed and cover with a lid.
  3. The seed will start to pop.
  4. Monitor closely so that the seeds do not burn.
  5. Turn off heat and remove from heat.
  6. Remove lid to let the steam escape.
  7. Pour the seed into a bowl.
  8. To the bowl, add the compliant sweetener, Cocoa Powder, and spices, BT compliant.
  9. Mix well with a spoon.
  10. If you eat it immediately, it is a warm, sticky, crunchy treat that you can eat with a spoon.
  11. It also can be formed into balls to be served later as a finger-food treat.
  12. If you let the mixture cool, then you have to break it up with a spoon.
  13. You could then add a compliant milk and serve it as a breakfast cereal.
  14. Or just eat it with a spoon for a tasty, crunchy treat.
  15. 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.
  16. Enjoy!
