1 cup Gluten Free Amaranth Flour

3 tbsps Gluten Free Buckwheat Flour (or other GF flour)

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup soft butter (or vegan butter)

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs (or equivalent)

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 160°C (Fan) 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

Place the flours, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine the ingredients.

In a separate bowl melt the butter slightly and whisk together with the eggs.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon until the dough is smooth and not sticky.

Divided the mixture in to 14 small balls and place them on a greased baking tray or a tray covered with parchment.  Flatten the dough slightly and place the tray in the centre on the oven for 10 – 12 minutes until they are slightly brown and still soft to touch.

Allow to cool slightly, removed the cookies from the tray and place them on a wire rack to cool down fully.
