Halawa is a classic, elegant simple middle eastern dessert with 4 simple ingredients
Traditionally served with bread but for my gluten free sugar free household I’ve adjusted for a low carb recipe. Making this loved dessert healthy & equally delicious.
1 teaspoon of rosewater
5 tablespoons of hulled tahini
3 tablespoons of naturally sweet xylitol icing ‘sugar’ (sugar free )
Compress the pistachios in a mortar and pestle until some are flattened and there are still pieces that look roughly chopped.
Add the pistachios into a bowl and add the tahini, rosewater and icing xylitol.
The patient process is using the back of a spoon. Compress the ingredients together, slowly.
Flatten the mixture in the bowl (just enough to form a 1 inch layer) then reform into a ball and flatten again.
Repeat this process until the xylitol dissolves.
Serve with a cup of tea and enjoy, bread free!
