  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine water and amaranth in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  3. Mix peanut butter, applesauce, honey, and egg together in a bowl. Add cooked amaranth, garbanzo bean flour, oats, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, baking powder, and cinnamon and mix well; spread into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cut into wedges and store in a container in the refrigerator.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I bring the amaranth to a boil, then simmer for a few minutes, then turn off the heat. Later, if all water is not absorbed, I will turn on the heat again, and carefully watch to see when the bottom of the pan is almost dry! This is better made with a few drops of water that isn't absorbed than to chance letting the amaranth dry out!

Good, but slightly too much peanut butter. Next time I'll decrease the peanut butter and increase the honey. For those that don't know you can replace the Amaranth with Quinoa.
