7 Healthy Eid Desserts

For those who don’t know, Eid Al Fitr is a celebration that marks the end of the month of fasting (Ramadan), It’s like the Muslim version of Christmas. A time to spend with loved ones accompanied by lots of yummy traditional food and desserts. 

I’ve always had a sweet tooth but didn’t really have many desserts growing up. I used to look forward to Eid for the desserts more than anything! They would usually be in the form of some sort of cookie, like my all time favourite cookies – traditional kleicha (also known as ma’amoul).

Just because I focus on healthy eating now and wholesome recipes doesn’t mean I should miss out on these delicious traditional treats. No way! It means I had to come up with my own healthified versions that taste just as good as the original. 

If you’re looking for healthy treats that you would like to share with your family or give away as gifts, here’s 8 healthy eid desserts you might like:

  1. I tried Kleicha for the first time a while back, they were absolutely delicious and something I would like to make again. Hope you enjoy your celebrations this year!

  2. EID MUBURAK! This looks really good! My mom always make Kleicha every EID and now I’m craving for it after seeing your post!

  3. Thank you for sharing this Kleicha recipe. It came out wonderfully. Hard to believe it’s gluten free. Delicious!!! Dany

  4. Asalaamualaikum,
    I made the kleicha today for my 7 and 3 year old boys. They loved them, even my fussy husband said they were good. We didn’t have any coconut oil so I used dairy free margarine. Jazakilah for the recipe ideas.

  5. Thank you for sharing these healthy recipes. I was in search of healthy desserts that can be prepared in this Ramadan, only got some collection from Nestle Desserts Arabia. Thanks to you… my list increased
