Low Carb Cookies with a Middle Eastern Twist

By: Hadia Khanafer from
Low Carb Cookies with a Middle Eastern Twist
Low Carb Cookies with a Middle Eastern Twist

"A cross between a cookie and a bread! If you have 20 minutes to spare, make these soft cookies, they can be whipped up and baked directly!! They are low carb, sugar free, flourless and your appetite stays in control, suitable also for diabetics and won’t raise your blood sugar level!! These are not your regular cookies, but lovely soft with a Middle Eastern twist! The star of the show here is the unique blend of the Middle Eastern spices: anise seeds, kaak spice and turmeric! Indeed the cookies are a reminiscent of Kaak Al Abbas, a treat I grew up eating!"

NotesWhat makes these bread like cookies special?
They are chock-full of lovely spices and flavors.
They are easy and fast to make, and the dough doesn’t require either proof or fermentation.
They are great to have on hand for breakfast. They can be served with labneh, cheese , or they can be served as snack or even perfect for an after dinner dessert, you won’t even feel bloated!
You can substitute sugar free peanut butter for tahini, though, here, my personal preference is tahini.
It is a guilt-free recipe, yes it is low carb, sugar free, flourless and your appetite stays in control.
