    After a last minute confusion, I decided to bake Ghoriba Bahla  for my moroccan theme. I think there are few few times when I pair up the themes and cook one dish.

    These moroccan cookies have a distinct texture due to the addition of roasted sesame and almonds. Here I have used almond flour instead of using almonds bits.The original recipe does not ask for more liquid but my dough felt a little coarse and hence I have used a little of milk to hold the dough. These cookies are very easy to mix. If you are making small quantities, you do not need a stand mixer as suggested in the recipe.

    Since I had to cook a moroccan recipe for the moroccan and also had to bake for bakeathon, I chose to bake these cookies and I am loving these.The almond flour in the cookie definitely has a distinct taste and flavour. I think I will bake more of cookies with almond flour now. I have already baked and blogged about Ghorayebah the cookies from egypt. I feel all these cookies have some small variations from the nankhatai and butter cookies that we bake. I think these cookies can be made gluten free too if we substitute the all purpose flour with almond flour.

    Do try baking these cookies. They are very simple to bake and delicious to eat. Makes a perfect tea time snack too

    Just looking at them makes me want them! These cookies are sold at the Moroccan stall at Global Village in Dubai and usually cost a bomb, but we do sneak in a bit of the samples that they provide and they are melt in the mouth! Hehe… would love to try this, and love that it’s low on sugar as well…

    The name itself is intriguing! he combination of almond and sesame sounds too good. And yes, you must bake more with almond flour. I totally love the flavour and texture it gives to bakes, especially cookies. And I also love the texture of oil-based cookies. Bookmarking this recipe!

    Amazing cookies using Almond flour. Just the other day, my little one was asking me why I never bake with Almond flour? With this recipe I have an answer for her 🙂 Bookmarked!!
