Amaranth Apple Bread

This recipe is one of my favourite treats from my Falling in love with Food cookbook. For a protein-packed breakfast or snack serve this bread with nut butter, cottage or ricotta cheese!

If you aren’t familiar with amaranth, here are a few facts:

  • Not a true ‘grain’ similar to quinoa is considered a ‘pseudo-cereal’
  • Gluten-free
  • High in fibre
  • Contains more protein compare to true ‘grains’
  • Rich source of minerals including iron, magnesium, potassium and calcium


  • Prep: 5 minutes
  • Cooking: 60 minutes




  • ½ cup mixed raw and unsalted nuts
  • 2 cups amaranth flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (or honey)
