  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  4. Process until creamy and thick.(2 minutes)
  5. Mix in the amaranth flour, baking soda, salt, and Italian seasoning.(1 minute)
  6. Wet your hands, scoop about a tablespoon of the mixture, and shape it into patties.(5 minutes)
  7. Lightly brush them with olive oil and bake for about 20-25 minutes, flipping them half way through. They should be golden brown.(25 minutes)
  8. Enjoy!

These baked amaranth green pea fritters go well with whole grains, such as  quinoa, millet, or brown rice; guamacole or hummus; and a side salad. You can also serve them with Greek tzatziki sauce.
