Popped Amaranth Breakfast Blend

We have become serious fans of popped amaranth. After posting the Amaranth Breakfast Pops a few days ago, we had leftover popped amaranth, so I created this delightful breakfast blend and we've been loving it! Great to pack ahead if you are traveling! You can add it to your favorite granola recipe as well.

Popped Amaranth Breakfast Blend
(1 serving)
1/4 cup popped amaranth
3 Tbsp *sprouted buckwheat, dehydrated and coarsely ground. (optional)
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds (best if soaked for 2 - 4 hours and dehydrated)
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup pecans, soaked and dehydrated
1 Tbsp shredded coconut 
dash sea salt
maple syrup, coconut nectar, or honey( not vegan), to sweeten
-Add chopped almonds or dates, blueberries or whatever fruit you enjoy.

Coarsely grind sprouted buckwheat in food processor. Click on link above for how to pop amaranth.

Serve with fresh almond milk and fresh fruit.

 I store dehydrated buckwheat in freezer. Next time you want this yummy breakfast, all you have to do is add almond milk. EASY!

*Another option is to take fresh sprouted buckwheat, not dehydrated and mix it with all ingredients above.  Add 2 T ground flax mixed  with 6T water And stir into mixture.  Add additional water and maple syrup if needed. Spread on dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 110 degrees F for 8-10 hours makes a really crunchy granola.

You can also sprout and dehydrate amaranth, but I prefer the nutty flavor of it popped, so this ingredient is not raw. Amaranth was a sacred crop of the Aztecs. It's seeds are packed with exceptionally high amounts of protein, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, carbohydrates, and more. They are low in fat and contain no cholesterol. For those allergic to wheat, Amaranth makes an excellent substitute. Amaranth also contains significant levels of vitamin B-complex, E, zinc, phosphorous, etc.

Mmmm I had a breakfast similar to this this morning!! :)

I find it hard to make savoury raw breakfasts - any ideas that don't require a dehydrator?
