Amaranth cookies (gluten free)

Gluten free cookies are usually made using amaranth flour, ragi , sabudana , millet, rice, besan, jowar etc. I have chosen amaranth, sabudana (sago), and ragi( finger millet) which are loaded with nutrients. Home made cookies are nutritious and without any chemicals too. They are mouth watering, buttery and extremely delicious. These cookies are crumbly and their texture makes you fall for them. So do try these yummy cookies for your family . Happy baking!
