I like to try random new foods, and picked this recipe to try amaranth so I could taste a little by itself before baking it into the bread. I am not a big fan of large chunks in my bread, and really didn't care for the sunflower seeds - I think they would have been better chopped finely, but that's just my preference. The bread had a great flavor, and sliced decently. Thanks for sharing!
I made a resolution to clean out the cupboard. I bought amaranth to try, but I don't really like it cooked plain (it has a kind of soapy taste). Anyway, I made a half-recipe of this bread just to see if the soapy taste comes through. I didn't have any sunflowers, so I just left them out. I used Agave nectar instead of the maple syrup. I might add a little extra sweetener next time. The bread is good, similar to corn bread, without the aftertaste I notice in plain amaranth. I will definitely make it again, a whole recipe next time. Thanks!
I was happy to use up some of the amaranth I had on hand. I enjoyed this healthful bread - I thought the flavour and texture was very nice. My kids weren't quite as thrilled, so I don't know if I'll be making it again as they're the reason I bought the amaranth to try, in the first place. I would certainly recommend this recipe to anyone wanting to try an alternative, healthful bread, though.
