NO GLUTEN, NO SUGAR, NO BAKE BAKLAVA
This recipe is perfect if you've got guests over but totally forgot to buy dessert for your dinner table. Do you want a dessert that is free from table sugar, whipped cream, eggs flour, xanthan gum or any other additive that might cause inflammation in your body? Easy to make, quick to serve and delicious to eat so you can finally relax at the dinner table and feel good about serving your family and friends a healthy treat.Pistachios and walnuts are rich in antioxidants, high in protein, Omega-3s and promote healthy gut bacteria. Honey has a whole variety of benefits from lowering blood pressure to helping heal various conditions and also has antifungal properties.Eat them right after you take them out of the fridge and serve to prevent softening and sticking to the surface (although they are just as good when you eat them with a spoon).My family loves these little guys. I hope yours will as well!
- Food processor
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1 cup pistachios
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp lemon zest
- 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tbsp ghee melted
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Line plate or small baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
- Pulse walnuts, pistachios, salt and cinnamon together in a food processor until large pieces form. Or you can pulse until desired consistency - the more you do it, the finer your mixture will become.
- In a medium bowl, stir together lemon zest, vanilla, honey, melted ghee, lemon juice and nuts mixture, shape into 2 inch balls and put them on the plate baking sheet. Your baklava will be sticky due to soft honey but will hold its shape as it chills.
- Chill in the fridge for 20-30 minutes (you can also store them in the fridge longer) and only take them out of the fridge when you're ready to devour the desert.
