8 Tbsp amaranth
1/4 cup raw cashews
2-3 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup raw sunflower seed
3/4 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup choc chips
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup organic real maple syrup
3/4 cup organic brown rice syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Your popping pan must be non stick and must be thoroughly heated for the amaranth to pop and not burn. Do not start your syrup until you have mixed all the dry ingredients together.
You can use all honey, or any mixture of the wet ingredients as long as they make 1 1/4 cup total.
