If you can tolerate nuts and dates, this is pretty good. Amaranth is higher in calcium than spinach, and higher in fiber than white rice, but it's still mild. I also plan to try making this with amaranth flour instead of white flour.
Amaranth Date Bread
1 c chopped dates 1/2 c amaranth 1 c boiling water 3 egg whites 1/2 c honey ¼ c canola oil 2 c flour 2 tsp baking powder 1 c chopped pecans 1 ts Vanilla extract
Soak dates and amaranth in boiling water for 10 mins; drain if necessary.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, beat whites; add honey and oil; beat well. Stir in all remaining ingredients, including dates and amaranth, mixing well. Pour into an oiled loaf pan. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 min.
