Amaranth & Flax Pancakes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Suzie M

I am basically "allergic to the universe." This recipe came from my personal desire to make pancakes which do not contain white flour or white sugar. The recipe is quick, simple and very healthy. The pancake itself is not sweet tasting because it has no sweetener, however, it can be easily sweetened by adding Stevia, Steviva, or some other sweetener to the batter. I have elected to sweeten the pancake by adding honey and fruit.

OH, thank you for this! Recipes for amaranth seem hard to come by. We eat buckwheat pancakes here, but since it's an aquired taste I'll plan on making these Christmas day when we have the company.
