Amaranth Pancakes

These pancakes were developed to be dairy- and gluten-free. The slight crunch of amaranth makes these memorably delicious! Soy milk can be substituted for almond milk if desired.

1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup amaranth
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  3. Spray griddle with cooking spray. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
