| organic grain amaranth
|Use only organic grain amaranth to avoid possible consumption of potentially harmful GMOs (genetically modified organisms). First, pop the amaranth as you would popcorn, initially using trial and error to get the right moisture content and heat to pop nearly 100 percent of the grain. Place the popped grains in a pan to a depth of one to two inches, and then level. To increase protein and polyphenolics (antioxidants), add some five to ten percent dried microalgae, such as spirulina, scenedesmus, or chlorella, and mix thoroughly. Again, level the mixture.
To the above mix, add enough natural honey to make everything stick together as if you were making crisp rice (Rice Krispies) treats. Let this mix set for 20 to 30 minutes, and then cut in squares the size desired for snacks. Wrap each snack in a material that will help keep it fresh while preventing contact with insects.
