Amaranth Breakfast Cookies


This recipe is almost exactly the same as my amaranth porridge, but flattened and baked (easy grab for little hands).  I used a chia egg, as my daughter appears to have an egg allergy, but this would probably work with an egg as well.


  • 1 cup cooked amaranth using the basic amaranth recipe above

  • 1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seed + 3 tbsp water, mixed together and allowed to set for about 10 minutes)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 3/4 cup applesauce


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees fairenheight

  2. Combine above ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well

  3. Using a well greased cookie sheet, place about 1-2 tbsp in heaping amounts on the sheet

  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through

  5. Enjoy! The final product will be a bit soft, but perfect for babies just starting out eating (although my toddler loved them too!)
