  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease inside of 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan, and dust with Ground Amaranth.

  2. Whisk together amaranth, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt in medium mixing bowl.

  3. Combine sugar, oil, yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract in large mixing bowl, and beat on medium-high speed until well combined.

  4. Reduce mixer speed to low, and gradually add amaranth mixture, beating until just combined. Use rubber spatula to stir in zucchini.

  5. Scrape batter into loaf pan, and bake 45 to 50 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. If top of loaf begins to darken too quickly, cover with aluminum foil for remainder of baking time.

  6. Cool for 20 minutes in pan, then turn out onto wire rack to finish cooling.
