Nutty Amaranth Banana Muffins
Rating (0 Rated)
Deriving its name from the Greek word for “never-fading flower,” amaranth is a highly nutritious seed with a robust, nutty, sweet flavor. Amaranth is packed with iron and calcium (twice that of milk!) and contains two essential amino acids that are generally hard to find in grains. Its fiber content is triple that of wheat but it is gluten-free and very easy to digest.
