Cocoa and Amaranth CookiesAnanás e Hortelã
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.
