Amaranth Grain Pancakes


  • 50g amaranth flour
  • 100 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • pepper
  • oil or butter


  • Put the milk and the egg in a bowl and whisk with a fork.
  • Now add the flour and make a smooth batter. You can do everything in the blender, quick and you’ll get a nice smooth batter.
  • Put a frying pan on the fire with a little oil and wait until the pan is hot.
  • Pour half of the batter in the pan, until the bottom is covered with a thin layer of batter.
  • Bake the amaranth pancake on both sides until slightly brown. Prepare the second pancake in the same way.

Amaranth pancakes have a slight salty and nutty taste, so they are very nice with savoury fillings.
But you can of course also eat them like regular pancakes, with sugar, fruit, etc.
