  • 1 teaspoon ghee
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups walnuts, chopped coarsely
  • ¼ cup coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 sheets whole-wheat pastry filo
  • ¼ cup ghee or vegetable spray
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

Heat the ghee and maple syrup in a sauté pan. Add the walnuts and sauté until well coated.  Stir in the coconut flakes and cinnamon. Continue to combine until well coated.

Cut a whole filo pastry sheet into 4 equal-sized pieces. Very lightly spread the ghee on the sheets with a pastry brush. (You can also use vegetable spray instead of ghee. Lightly spray the sheets with the vegetable oil.) Stack the 4 pieces on top of each other.

Place some of the chopped walnut mixture into the corner of the filo pastry. Fold into a triangle starting at the corner and keep folding until the triangle is complete.

Place on a sprayed sheet pan, lightly brush some ghee on top, and sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
