Even this traditionally sweet Purim pastry can be adjusted to our Low Glycemic lifestyle needs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup oats flour
  • 1 ½ cups sprouted whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup Splenda® (or ¼ cup pure fructose)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick of cold margarine
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Lemon peel from ½ lemon

Directions:

  • In a medium bowl, stir together dry ingredients (first five).
  • Using a knife, to blend in the margarine and make a crumbly dough by hands.
  • Beat eggs with vanilla, add lemon peel.
  • Pour the eggs mixture into crumbs, making a dough.

Cover with nylon wrap and let to rest for about an hour. Meanwhile, make the fillings.

I am not giving exact measures for fillings since you can use many different combinations.

Two fillings which I used were:

  • Chopped apricots with walnuts.
  • Boiled poppy seeds with melted chocolate

Other options:

  • Almond meal with 100% fruit jam
  • Chopped prunes
  • Chopped prunes, mixed with chopped walnuts or almonds

Directions:

  • Divide a dough into 3-4 parts for easier rolling.
  • Roll out a dough and cut into circles using a glass 2 – 2.5 inches in diameter.
  • Place ½ tsp of filling on each circle, and then wrap it up into a triangular shape.
  • Place on a baking sheet covered with non-stick baking paper, and bake 13-15 minutes on 390*F (180*C).
