Last year I made a healthier version of my favourite cookies – Kleicha (كليجة) which are Iraqi date cookies that are traditionally served on Eid (A religious holiday to celebrate the end of the month of Ramadan where muslims fast from sun rise to sun set for a whole month). Even though I loved the version I made last year, I wanted to outdo myself by making an even better and healthier version!

Applesauce is a healthy, low calorie and low fat baking substitute for oil, butter and eggs. It’s also a great option for vegan baking. It works better for some recipes than others and you may need to adjust baking time when using applesauce.

I made these healthy gluten free caramel cookies while revising for my exam a couple of weeks ago. When I feel stressed, nothing is more soothing than going into the kitchen, taking my baking essentials out and whipping up some delicious wholesome goodies!
