This recipe is the perfect snack/dessert and it’s super easy to make!
I love Amaranth flour as it gives off quite a nutty and rainy flavor and smell. It goes well with any recipe, be it sweet or savory.
Today my sister made cookies using Amaranth flour and nutella. They were super delicious and the texture too was perfect; just like any other cookie.
At first, she was hesitant to use Amaranth flour because I’m the only one in my family who is doing a gluten and dairy free diet, but when she tried this recipe for me today, she fell in love.
Trust me, you’ll fall in love too with this simple recipe and with Amaranth flour.
All you need for the cookies are:-
Amaranth Flour – 1 cup
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Nutella – 2-3 tbsp (the chocolatier, the better)
Vanilla essence – 1/2 tsp
Egg – 1
Handful of Nuts of your choice
Preheat oven to 170 degree c.
First mix the dry ingredients. Then mix the dry ingredients, make sure there aren’t any lumps. It should be a smooth flowing consistency. Combine the batter to the flour and mix with a spatula until everything is well combined. You will get a dough at the end. You can either add nuts while mixing the dough or decorate it at the end. It’s totally up to you.
Line a baking tray with butter paper or grease it with melted butter. Roll the dough and place it on the tray, leaving enough gaps for the cookies to flatten.
Bake for 30 minutes and voila, your cookies are ready to eat. But be sure to let them cool down a little before you chomp them all down.
I am so grateful for my sister to make the cookies today. I really needed something to ease my nerves and make me feel happy.
I hope you guys will try this recipe too and don’t forget to comment down how it turned out for you guys and whether you have liked Amaranth flour or not.
