Keto Kourabiedes should not be that difficult if we were able to ketonised the famous Melomakarona. However, did you ever travel to Greece during the winter festivities? If yes, chances are you had those sugar-coated biscuits* (or cookies). Nevertheless, we the Ketonians know how unhealthy sugar is! Furthermore, we don’t even have to talk about the level of blood glucose after eating them. Luckily, Keto-friendly sweeteners come in powdered form too. So, what should stop you from making Keto Kourabiedes this Christmas or New Year’s season?
*We call them biscuits because we use Brittish English.
On the other side, in th USA they are called cookies.
A touch of history and connection with Apollo
Ancient Greeks loved to give honour to the Gods and the Universe by preparing sweet treats for their honour. The ritual cake for the winter solstice is the best example of this tradition. This time happens to be quite equivalent to the time we celebrate Christmas today. Maybe this is why Greeks continued making sweet biscuits for Christmas! Even though powdered sugar did not exist back then, ancients used honey and lots of precious spices to give honour to the newborn sun. Interestingly, God of the sun Helios can be Apollo (in Greek Apollonas) – the light bringer. Remember, this website’s founder is Apollonas. What a great coincidence, isn’t it? Let’s see what we can do to reduce the sugar content and still celebrate all the winter holidays!
