Pre-Colombian Aztecs once thrived on Amaranth until it was outlawed by Spanish conquerors in the 16th century. Eventually, it fell into complete obscurity. Fortunately, it has recently been rediscovered. Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Amaranth Flour has a mild but distinct, sweet, nutty and malt-like flavor. It is a great way to enhance the flavor of baked goods and it is very easy to use. Simply substitute 1/4 of your recipe's conventional flour with Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain Amaranth Flour.
Bob's Red Mill products labeled Gluten Free are batch tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA Gluten Assay test to determine if a product is gluten free.

Amaranth Carrot Cookies
This recipe is a healthy cookie that tastes like a carrot cake. We chose to use agave syrup rather than honey because it's not so sweet. If you use honey you may want to use less than the suggested amount.
Yields: 1 dozen medium size cookies.
6 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Agave Syrup
6 Tbsp. Water
2 cups Amaranth Flour
2/3 cup Arrowroot Starch
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
2 tsp. Vanilla
2/3 cup grated Carrot
2/3 cup Raisins
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet, set aside. Combine all of the wet ingredients and set aside. In a separate bowl sift flours. Combine dry ingredients and sift again. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Add raisins and grated carrots. Use a medium size (1.5 oz) spring action scoop to place batter on greased cookie sheet. Using a scoop will ensure your cookies to bake evenly. Bake 12-15 minutes, until cookies are lightly brown. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.
Whole grain organic amaranth.
Manufactured in a facility that also uses tree nuts and soy.

I have been searching for ages for a good substitute for white flour, and I think I have finally found the answer with Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Grain Amaranth Flour. This is great news, for both my husband and I are diabetics, and it's not just sugar that causes glucose levels to increase. I have had lots of fun redoing old recipes for cakes and cookies that otherwise would call for white flour - there is no discernible difference in taste, although one has to be careful in how much one uses as I did have to recalculate some measurements as Amaranth flour has a denser consistency than regular. However, our sweet tooth can be happily satisfied without the fear of paying the price with our sugar levels!

Like this flour because it is gluten free, vegan and healthy. It makes an excellent cereal for winter that nourishes the body. Add to boiling water, stir and serve. Sweeten with Agave ( a natural and vegan sweetener far healthier than sugar and better than stealing honey from the bees who need it more.
making my own gluten free bread! it's lovely

I usually use oat flour and I had ran out of that so I used my package of amaranth flour... I bought it since it's really healthy. It was one of the most disgusting things ever. I can't describe the taste, or the smell for that matter, cause it smells awful too. I usually make pancakes in the oven.. And the whole house smells of this, when using this. Not gonna buy this again.. Sorry to say, since it's really nutritious..
