Indulge in your favorite cookies and desserts without provoking your constitution. Here are some tips!
Sugar coat your cookies
Sprinkle a bit of sugar on top of your cookies before baking. Your taste buds will fool you: the whole cookie will taste sweet and you can add less sugar in the mixture. It sounds so simple, but it works!
Choose natural sugars
Fruit and natural sugars are much less aggravating to the doshas than refined sugar. Use agave syrup or maple syrup. You can also add dates, bananas, or raisins to sweeten your pastry.
Add sweet spices
Your cookies will be more digestible and taste sweeter when you add for example cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, fennel, saffron and cloves.
