UPDATE: (4/29/17) This bread recipe does contain millet. The proteins in millet are very similar to corn. If you have a corn allergy, you will want to substitute the millet with something else. I did a bit of research and found that Quinoa Flour would be a great alternative, and a healthier one.

Today for Allergy-free Friday, I have 2 recipes: Irish Stew and Soda Bread, a classic combination. The stew is the easy part of this combo. Since the Irish Soda Bread is gluten free, nothing is cut and dried. And, as is the case in many gluten free bread recipes, there are several flours with which to incorporate, in this case  millet, amaranth, sorghum and tapioca. The good part about this combination is the ancient grains used: millet and amaranth. Like most ancient grains, these 2 grains have several health benefits.

Health benefits of millet include:

  • heart protection
  • tissue repair
  • assist with type 2 diabetes
  • prevents gallstones
  • breast cancer protection
  • protection against asthma

Health benefits of amaranth include:

  • Natural pain killer
  • reduce anemia
  • high in anti-oxidants
  • helps with weight management
  • aids in bone strength
  • prevents macular degeneration
  • helps with a healthy digestive system
  • helps repair blood vessel walls
  • helps with growth and creation of new cells and body tissues

      1. I hesitated when I included a recipe with millet, since it’s similar to corn. But finding allergy free recipes without the 12 ingredients on my list is tough, especially baked goods. I’ll look for a substitute for millet. Thanks for mentioning it.

      2. I just did a bit of research. Quinoa flour would be a great alternative for the millet. They are both small seeds, with a similar texture. Quinoa is also a healthier option in my opinion. Hope that helps.
