Healthy version of Hamantaschen

 

 

With Purim just around the corner, we thought we'd give you a head start with this holiday's traditional treat - Hamantaschen!

 

 

 

 

 

Cookie:

 

4 cups whole wheat pastry flour

 

2 tsp. baking powder

 

1-1/4 cups sucanat

 

16 tbsp. canola spread

 

4 eggs (or substitute)

 

A little vanilla

 

 

 

 

 

Filling:

 

Chopped apricots (or prunes)

 

Honey

 

Sucanat

 

 

 

 

 

Method:

 

Mix together dry ingredients and add canola spread, mix really, really well. Add vanilla to beaten eggs and add to rest of mixture and knead.

 

 

 

Cook filling ingredients together with some water.

 

 

 

Roll out dough and cut into circles (with glass or better yet a tuna can with both the top and the bottom removed) stuff with filling and bake on parchment-lined sheet for most even baking) at 325°F on middle rack until brown.

 

 

 

With the use of unrefined sugar and flour, canola oil and egg substitute, there is no need to feel guilty enjoying this tradition fare. And, to make you feel even better, they are high in fiber and low in fat and cholesterol – unlike traditional recipes.

 

 

 

 

 

Tip:

 

Feel free to replace sucanat, with using unrefined turbinado sugar (raw sugar) only.
