Healthy Amaranth Bars

Between the Gluten-free grains, the amaranth is the one that contains the most protein and magnesium; it is a good source of calcium, iron and fiber. 

So, whether or not you have gluten allergies, this is a perfect option for multiple healthy recipes, it is nutritious and can be prepared in many different ways.

  • 125 g puffed amaranth
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  1. Grease a 8 x 8 in pan with cooking spray
  2. Over a large sized sauce pan, heat honey in medium-low heat for around a minute and a half, stirring constantly. Add sunflower seeds and almonds and mix well; incorporate puffed amaranth and mix until well coated
  3. Transfer mixture to pan and press with a spatula or with a waxed paper (amaranth will stick to your fingers). The mixture should be very tight.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, press again to tighten and cut into squares.
