In case you are not familiar with amaranth, it's an ancient grain that is a type of wheat (meaning it is not the one to use for making gluten free treats). It has a robust flavor, and here is combined with spelt flour for a more wholesome alternative to white flour. Dark brown sugar is also considered a healthier alternative to white sugar, plus it offers a hint of molasses flavor. Toss in cocoa powder and you've got yourself one delicious cookie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup amaranth
  • 3/4 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 75 grams butter (melted and cooled)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat the egg with the sugar and butter. Add the cocoa and the flour. Mix well until combined. Add amaranth and mix well. Form a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 20-40 minutes. Grease baking sheets and line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Form small balls with the dough, place on baking sheets and flatten well with hands. Bake for about 15 minutes.
