Aren't we all fed up of buying broken, crumbled or dry GF bread in our local supermarkets? I for one am tired of it and of the constant disappointment. Which is why years ago, I converted to corn and rice cakes as my alternative to bread.
The other day, I discovered a recipe for Amaranth yeast-free bread and was amazed.
So here it is, please let me know how you get on.

Interesting Fact: Amaranth’s protein content is about 13 percent, or 26 grams per cup, which is much higher than for most other grains. To compare, a cup of long-grain white rice has just 13 grams of protein.
