Without gluten, flexibility is lost and the surface when eating gets undesirable, even powder-like.

* To pound the amaranth seeds, place a bigger sum than you need into a flavor processor, pestle and mortar, or comparable, and rush or pulverize until the seeds become floury however aren’t yet diminished to a powder – this surface will enable the completed baked good to have some crunch. Weigh out the 15g (1/2 oz) required and save the rest in a hermetically sealed compartment for sometime later.
