This dense, chewy bread has a good dose of fiber and is great toasted in the morning with my oatmeal.

We love it! I substituted quinoa for the amaranth only because I did not have any amaranth on hand. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. It is dense but is delicious. And we are very pleased with the healthy ingredients. A great bread. Read More

This bread was delicious! My husband who eats whole wheat, but prefers white ate two small loaves in one sitting. ( I made one large loaf and 4 small ones.) I was out of amaranth and substituted chia seeds and ground up some oat bran cereal to replace oat bran. Both substitutes worked fine. I will make again! Read More

I am not a bread maker but this recipe using a bread machine made it super easy!! I substituted quinoa for amaranth seeds. I really like it but it’s not as fiber-rich as I was expecting. I might add finely chopped pecans next time. My husband was not as keen on it because the crust was hard and it wasn’t sweet. He had different expectations. After wrapping it in plastic wrap it was not as hard and he wanted some with his soup. I might add honey and cinnamon to the next batch and make rolls instead of loaves, to eat for breakfast. I was looking for a bread with high fiber to help lower cholesterol. I will definitely do this again! Read More
