Yesterday we shared how to Make Your Own Cornmeal using the Wondermill Electric Mill and we thought we'd share some pretty freakishly delicious cornbread with you now that we've given you the skinny on brilliantly fresh cornmeal at home.
Organic Sprouted Amaranth is one of those ancient grains that gives you super nutrition. Because of the sprouting process, it is literally a powerhouse of goodness for your body...and yes, it is one of the grains that we can mill for you fresh to order. It's a tiny grain, but it's fiercely fantastic.
This cornbread recipe calls for our Organic Grains Sprouted Amaranth milled into a flour, so be sure to hit that option when ordering it so it is the right texture to make this bread. This recipe is gluten-free with some vegan modifications available at the end of the post as well.

Directions: In a 2-quart sized bowl, combine the amaranth flour, cornmeal, sea salt and baking powder. Whisk the honey, eggs, almond milk, and oil in a medium bowl.
