Popped Amaranth Peanut Butter Balls!

Recommended Posts

If you buy Amaranth in the whole grain and not already ground up into flour, you can pop it like pop corn! I found the recipe today and it tells you how to pop it and make it into peanut butter balls! I thought it would be great for those of you who can't tolerate regualr pop corn.

AMARANTH PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

2 tablespoons amaranth

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons honey

Place 1/2 tablespoon of amaranth in a very hot, heavy

skillet. Amaranth should begin to pop like popcorn almost

immediately. Quickly stir with a flat edged wooden spoon or a pastry

brush until amaranth stops popping. Immediately pour into a

bowl. Pop remaining amaranth 1/2 tablespoon at a time. Allow to

cool slightly. Stir in peanut butter and honey. Mix

thoroughly. Form into balls about 3/4-inch in diameter. Allow to

cool completely. Makes about 15 balls.

Hope these work out for everyone!

I tried popping amaranth once and it didn't work, though I wonder if the pan was hot enough. It just burned. But seeing this recipe makes me want to try it again :)

Nu-World Foods Puffed Amaranth Cereal would solve the problem with popping the amaranth. It has nothing else in it and works great. It is available online through it's own site or here on celiac.com.
