Low-Fat Baklava

  • 1-cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts, dry-roasted
  • 8 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1/2-cup honey
  • 2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. Margarine (optional)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a small bowl, mix raisins and nuts, set aside. Lightly spray every other sheet of phyllo with vegetable oil spray, stacking all the sheets. Spread raisin-nut mixture over the phyllo, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. Starting on the long side, roll lengthwise, and place, seam side down, on a nonstick baking sheet, making sure the ends of the roll are tucked under. Brush the top lightly with
margarine, (or spray with vegetable oil). Cut through the pastry to the raisin-nut mixture, at 1-1/2 inch intervals, to provide vents for steam to escape. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until light golden brown. Slice, using vent lines as guide.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
