These spiced almond squares were inspired by a Lebanese dessert called sfouf, which is mainly made of semolina, wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil, and turmeric.
In an attempt to re-create a healthy version of these (that's also vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free), I had to substitute almost every ingredient — but I ended up with a mouthwatering recipe!
They taste very different from the original recipe, but they’re so delicious, moist, and fudgy! Since I first made them they’ve become my favorite afternoon snack and sometimes I even have them for breakfast.
