Baklava Inspired Dessert Packets!

Eating healthy does not mean you have to starve yourself. There is always a way to cut down calories but still be able to enjoy what you love to eat. This is a Mediterranean dessert called Baklava-inspired dish. I say inspired because i am not using loads of butter which goes into every layer of phyllo pastry. In addition, i added dried figs and dates which are in the season right now and have tons of health perks such as improving digestion, dietary fiber, improving hemoglobin, lowering blood pressure. Below are the ingredients and recipe video:

  • For packets:
    • 1 pastry sheet thawed and cut into squares
    • 2 tbsp melted butter
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts and pistachios
    • 1/3 cup chopped dried figs and dates
  • For syrup:
    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 2 cups water
    • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
