A warm and cozy breakfast of amaranth pumpkin porridge spiced with cinnamon will make getting up in the morning a treat!

Amaranth is a gluten-free pseudo-grain that is a great source of protein and when cooked, becomes gummy, which is perfect for porridge! By soaking the Amaranth overnight, it releases phytic acids, which helps to make it more digestible. This porridge is perfect for breakfast or even as a snack! The spices (especially Ceylon cinnamon) are great for balancing your blood sugar and will help to keep you full all morning long!
