This is a very moist and flavorful diet dessert option. The amaranth gives this quickbread a pleasant spicy-peppery flavor. The fruit and molasses give it sweetness without being overwhelming. Note that the serving size is small - I cut the loaf in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into 6 pieces that would fit in a 1/2cup snack container. This is a very heavy quickbread, so you don't need a lot.
