I experimented with my grandmother’s Reifat recipe and came up with a gluten-free version ((and can be made vegan) of them, which is as good as the recipe with all-purpose flour. They’re easy to make, only one bowl to wash and contain small amount of sugar (coconut sugar). I warn you though, they’re addictive. I highly recommend to have them with a cup of fresh mint tea on the side, Moroccan style.
If you don’t like anise, skip it. Feel free to add dry herbs such as rosemary or herb de Province.
