"This lightened-up version of traditional baklava is to die for, and it looks beautiful on a goody tray. The toasted pecans really stand out, and Grape-Nuts give additional crunch without adding calories."

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 cup Grape-Nuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, honey and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the pecans, cereal, raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in 3 tablespoons of honey mixture; set aside.
  3. Stack phyllo sheets on a work surface; trim 1 in. from the 9-in. side. Cut in half lengthwise, forming 8-in. x 7-in. rectangles. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Overlap two pieces in a greased 8-in. square baking dish; spray with cooking spray. Repeat three times.
  4. Spread nut mixture over top. Overlap two pieces of phyllo to cover nut mixture; spray with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining phyllo. Using a sharp knife, cut into 24 rectangles, about 2-1/2 in. x 1 in.
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Reheat reserved honey mixture; pour over hot baklava. Cool completely on a wire rack. Yield: 2 dozen.
