1/4 cup amaranth flour
1/4 cup teff flour
1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
1 tablespoon xanthan gum
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk, warmed
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup raisins


Grease 8x4-inch loaf pan. Line pan with parchment paper across bottom and extending up over long sides of pan; set aside.

Combine flour blend, amaranth flour, teff flour, yeast, xanthan gum, cinnamon and salt in bowl; mix well.

Combine warmed milk, melted butter, eggs, honey and vinegar with whisk in another bowl; mix well. Add flour mixture gradually to milk mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in walnuts and raisins.

Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Cover with greased plastic food wrap. Let rise in warm place 45-60 minutes or until bread dough reaches top of pan.

Heat oven to 375°F.

Uncover bread dough; bake 35-40 minutes until bread is brown and sounds hollow when tapped.

Hi Suzie! We haven't tested this recipe in a bread machine yet, so we can't say for certain if it would bake like a normal loaf of bread. If you do decide to try, we'd love to hear how it turns out for you. Happy baking!

Awesome! I love this recipe. I made it for the first time today. The whole family enjoyed it.
Great bread for breakfast - I used cranberries and pecans in place of the raisins & walnuts. I tossed a little of the flour mix with the cranberries to keep them from clumping together and stay suspended in the batter while baking a trick a great baker showed me years ago. Very tasty!
