Amaranth Flour: How to Use

The easiest way is to use amaranth flour in the recipes where you need only 1 - 2 spoons of the wheat flour or you can use it for breading.
This flour contains 7 – 8% of fats, whereas the commonly used flour has about 1%. You should take it into account in the recipes where you need to add some vegetable oil.
