AMARANTH CRUNCH CUPS WITH PEANUT BUTTER
Hey guys 😀
Have you ever heard of amaranth? It is a plant native to Mexico that the Aztecs cherished for its incredible nutritional value. The amaranth seeds are even tinier than quinoa. You can boil them, eat its sprouts or pop them like popcorn. How cool is that?
I personally don’t like the sticky texture of boiled amaranth that much so when I heard that you can pop them, I rushed into the kitchen to try it!
Popped amaranth tastes very good and has a nutty flavour. I highly recommend that you make a big batch of it because it is so good that we almost ate it all before I could make the Amaranth Crunch Cups 😛 You can enjoy it with plant-based milk for breakfast or in granola for example.
HOW TO MAKE THESE CRUNCH BARS (3 INGREDIENTS)
You will only need 3 ingredients to make these bars – popped amaranth, dark chocolate and peanut butter.
To pop amaranth, simply place the seeds in a hot non-stick pan. I suggest that you work with one teaspoon at a time to avoid burning the seeds. It may take a bit more time but it’s worth it 🙂
Now let me warn you – the seeds will pop as soon as you place them in the pan, so you should put the lid on right away if you don’t want to have tiny little amaranth seeds all over your kitchen.
Trust me, this is what happened to me 😛
