In this video, I’ll show you where to eat the best desserts in Andalucia. This region is also spelled Andalusia (just for clarification purposes). First we explore the beautiful town of Granada Spain in search of delicious Arabic desserts. One of the most beautiful areas to explore is called El Albayzín which dates back to the Medieval times when the Moors ruled Spain. The winding streets and cobblestone steps lead up a hill that is packed with shops selling trinkets and Shisha (tobacco). Andalucia is known for having a history of Moorish cuisine and architecture. This is what separates this region from the rest of Spain, and makes it a very unique culture.

This quaint area is also known as Little Marrakesh because it feels as if you’ve been transported to Morocco when you walk around these beautiful streets. The street I walked up (the main drag) has been nicknamed “La Calle de las Teterías” because of all the tea shops that line the walkway. The colorful array of tiles, lamps, carpets, and clothing will make you feel like you’re somewhere else other than Spain, but that is the beauty of Spain. Andalucia is a place where you can get lost in the labyrinth of winding alleyways and explore exotic cuisine.

The name of this Arabic pastelería is Marco Polo. They were selling gorgeous cake and lots of different Arabic cookies. The first cake I tried out was a chocolate cake covered with a buttery crust and it was covered in dried figs and apricots. I really liked this dessert because the dark chocolate tasted exactly like chewy fudge. I also really liked that I could eat it with my hands like a slice of chocolate pizza.

The next dessert I ate was Baklawa. It tasted like a butterfingers, which means it must have had lots of different crushed nuts such as almonds, cashews, walnuts, and peanuts. The crunchy nutty flavor and crumbling texture just melted in my mouth. It wasn’t too sweet which I liked.

Next up I tried Nidos which is made with pistachios and looks kind of like a birds nest. It’s crispy and looks like a bunch of noodles. The subtle taste of pistachios is really great, and this dessert isn’t too intense in flavor. They spiral this dessert together and I think the texture is what makes it so unique.

Last, I ate a cuerno gacela which is a gazelle horn type pastry. It’s filled with almond paste on the inside which is nice and smooth, and the dough is baked not fried so it doesn’t have any grease to it. There is orange blossom water and a little bit of cinnamon which make this my favorite pastry out of all of them.

In conclusion, I really enjoyed trying out these Arabic desserts. I think they would taste even better with some hot tea (which is how the locals eat them) or hot coffee. I highly recommend checking out this pastry shop in Granada Spain. This place is fabulous, and they also offers other goods such as spices and herbs. Although there aren’t any official directions on how to get here, it’s fairly easy to find as it is located on the main drag of the El Albayzín walkway heading up the hill towards the Alhambra lookout point.

In Andalucia, it is common to find many different types of Arabic food which is endemic to this region. I hope you enjoyed my tour of Andalucia!

– 2 Large Ripe Avocados
– 200g Strawberries
– 1 Tbsp Honey
– 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
– 100ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
– A few drops of Vanilla Stevia (optional)

Equipment: Nutribullet/ Mini food processor, Spatula

1) Add all of the ingredients to a Nutribullet or Blender.
2) Shake together, then blend until you have a thick and creamy Pudding consistency.
3) Serve with Strawberries, Cacao Nibs & a drizzle of Choc Shot.


– 2 Large, Ripe Bananas
– 2 Large Eggs
– 75g Coconut Flour
– 50g Oat Flour/ Oats
– 30g Sukrin Gold
– 20ml Melted Coconut oil
– 200ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
– 1 tsp Baking Powder

Equipment: Large Mixing Bowl, Electric Beaters, 2lb Loaf Tin, Baking Parchment.

1) Preheat the Oven to 180C and line your loaf time with the parchment (greaseproof paper).
2) Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. With your electric whisk, beat together until you have a smooth and fluffy batter. However, if the batter is a little dry, try adding a splash more Almond milk.
3) Pour batter into the Loaf tin and spread evenly. Pop into the middle shelf in the Oven.
4) Bake for 20 minutes at 180C. Take the cake out to check if it’s ready by simply putting a knife into the middle of the cake. If the blade comes out clean it is ready. If not, pop back in the oven for a further 3-4 minutes.
Leave to cool before giving it a try.


-2 Cups Almond Flour
-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
-1/4 Cup Honey/ Agave or Maple Syrup
-1/4 Cup Sukrin Gold
-1 Egg
-1/3 tsp Baking Powder
-1/3 Cup 70% Dark Chocolate Chips
-1 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)
-150 ml Unsweetened Almond Milk

Equipment: 7″ Baking Dish, Wooden Spoon, Large Mixing Bowl, Pyrex Jug

1)Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 7inch Baking dish.
2) Add the melted coconut oil and honey to the mixing bowl and light whisk together.
3) Then add all the ingredients besides the chocolate chips. Beat with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. You should have a smooth, batter. If a little dry, add extra almond milk 1-2 Tbsp at a time until you reached the desired cookie dough consistency which is a bit ‘wet’.
4) Add the Chocolate Chips and stir in until thoroughly combined.
Put cookie dough into the dish, and evenly spread so the dough is a few inches thick.
5) Place on the middle shelf in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. The dough is ready when lightly golden, chic chips are melting and it’s still gooey in the middle.
Serve almost immediately with Greek yoghurt or Ice Cream!

Chef Leticia – Preparing a delicious Toucinho do Céu – Portuguese Style Almond Cake

This recipe for a Portuguese- style almond cake uses a lot of egg yolks and simple syrup to create a sweet and tasty dessert. Finely ground almonds are cooked in a simple syrup, and then combined with egg yolks and baked. This reminds us of our Middle Eastern desserts that are heavy on nuts and sugar and satisfy that sweet tooth in all of us.
