  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, coconut, salt, baking powder and sugar. Throw in the butter and use your clean fingers or a pastry blender to pinch until the mixture becomes a coarse meal. Next, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the milk and almond extract. Use a spatula to fold the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined, then carefully fold in the pomegranate seeds.

  2. Flour a clean surface and transfer the dough to it. Make a 1-inch-thick oval with the dough and cut it into 8 equals triangles. Transfer the pieces to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat once browned on top and enjoy warm.
