Step 1

Line a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

Step 3

Place sugar in an even layer in a deep pot over medium heat. The granules will slowly begin to melt. Add molasses. When molasses begins to boil steadily, gently stir or swirl to incorporate Sugar. Remove from heat and immediately add popped amaranth and pumpkin seeds. Stir well to coat.

Step 4

Quickly transfer to a parchment lined 9 x 9-inch pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Immediately cut to desired size. Let cool and serve.

I haven't use much yet. Only once making a Quinoa and Amaranth fruit and nut bar. It was great. May is the month for the grain Amaranth and it will be displayed at my womens organization at church. I am trying to get some recipes right now. It Pops great.
