For the Amaranth:

  • 1/2 cup amaranth
  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk or whichever milk you prefer
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt

For the Apple:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup pecans chopped


  • Combine amaranth, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Cover amaranth and let simmer, stirring occasionally until it has absorbed most of the liquid. (About 15 minutes.) Remove from heat and let sit covered for another 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Heat coconut oil in a skillet. Toss in apples, maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir and gently sauteed for 7 minutes or until apples begin to soften. Toss in pecans and saute for another 2 minutes.
  • Pour amaranth into a bowl and top with apples. Stir in maple syrup and additional coconut milk as desired. Serve warm.
