But if you can use the Amaranth one, you’ll get all the good nutrients from it that work well with this recipe. Amaranth is not well known, but you might want to start using it more often to get all of its benefits. If you don’t want it to be gluten free you can use organic wheat flour.

Pre heat the oven at 375 degrees.

Grease a cookie sheet, or use a non-stick cooking sheet.

Mix in a big bowl with all the dry ingredients. Add all the liquid, fruits and chocolates chips.

Mix well to get a nice thick texture. You want to be able to shape cookies on the cookie sheet.

Depending on what type of flour you use, you may find your mix too dry as well. If that happens add some coconut milk or sprint water, until you get the right consistency.
