  • Rinse the amaranth under the running water. Mix the 8.45 oz. of amaranth, 8.45 fl. oz. of oat milk, 4.20 fl. oz. of water, 2 tablespoons of almond oil and a teaspoon of gingerbread spice mix in a saucepan, bring the mixture to a boil and cook over medium heat for about 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the amaranth absorbs the liquid.

  • In the meantime, wash the small piece of fresh ginger, peel and finely chop. Then wash the apple, peel and cut it into small pieces.

  • Heat the coconut oil in a small saucepan, add the chopped ginger and apple, sprinkle with cinnamon, and cardamon, and simmer for about 5 minutes. At the end add the raisins.

  • Before serving, divide the porridge into bowls and top each serving with some steamed apple, roasted almonds, and enjoy while the porridge is still warm.


  • Try experimenting with different milks for your porridge, such as almond or coconut.
