  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the amaranth, almond flour (start with 4 tablespoons, add 5th if batter is too loose), green onions, salt and baking soda until well-blended.
  2. Heat a large griddle or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spritz with cooking spray or a bit of oil and scoop heaping tablespoons of the batter onto hot surface. Cook or 1-2 minutes until bubble begin to appear on surface and bottoms are browned in spots (when lifted with a spatula). Flip over and cook for 1-2 minutes longer, Transfer to a cooling rack or eat immediately.
  3. Repeat with remaining batter.


To make amaranth porridge: In medium saucepan, over medium heat, toast 1/2 cup amaranth, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until fragrant. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 2-1/2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25 to 35 minutes or until very smooth and creamy and a lot (but not all) of the liquid is absorbed. Cool. This will yield about 2 cups; use half for the fritters recipe.
