1 serving

¼ cup amaranth

¾ cup water

½ cup milk (nut milk is also great!)

1 teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

optional garnish: coconut flakes

  1. In a small pot, bring amaranth and water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until liquid is mostly absorbed (about 15 minutes).
  2. Add the milk and continue cooking for an additional 15 minutes, until porridge reaches desired texture. Stir in the honey, cocoa powder, and cinnamon and mix until well combined.

I do not understand why the Nutrition Information is hidden and cannot be copied. I wanted to share this recipe with a friend who has very specific dietary needs and found this annoying.
Hi Eileen – Thanks for the feedback and suggestion. We will pass this along to our website developers and see if we can change that.
