Amaranth porridge is a great high-protein breakfast with a unique taste and texture. A perfect substitute for oatmeal or Cream of Wheat!


  • 1 cup amaranth
  • 1 cup organic Greek yogurt
  • 0.25 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Bananas, berries or other fruit for topping
  • Chopped nuts and/or coconut flakes for topping
  • More maple syrup for drizzling


  1. Cook amaranth according to package directions.
  2. When amaranth is cooked (about 20 minutes), remove from heat and stir in yogurt, maple syrup, cinnamon and pinch of salt.
  3. Let cool slightly then serve with desired toppings.

Notes: Amaranth is a great source of protein and contains all the essential amino acids! To make this cereal dairy-free, swap out the yogurt for 1/2 cup coconut milk.
