Geographical and natural origins of Moroccan Amlou
Amlou is basically a Moroccan preparation, eaten mainly by Berbers.
To be more precise, it's the Chleuhs who are used to consuming it, the Chleuhs being a Berber ethnic group present in the Souss region.
A large proportion of our honeys and cosmetics come from this region, which is world-renowned for the quality of its culinary skills and craftsmanship.
Benefits of Moroccan Amlou
As well as being a refined and delicate dish, Amlou is rich in health-giving nutrients, including vitamins, fatty acids (Omega 9 and 6) and antioxidants.
Amlou's flavor is remarkable, but its scent and texture are not to be outdone.
In addition to its delicious taste, Amlou also has a number of other benefits, some of which are listed below:

Taste and appearance of Moroccan Amlou
The recipe is based on almonds and argan oil. The almonds are roasted, then a certain amount of argan oil is added to the preparation to enhance its taste.
It also has the effect of perfuming the preparation, giving it a scent reminiscent of Morocco.
Finally, honey is added to the final preparation before being carefully blended. The preparation is then poured into our airtight jars before being offered to you.
Good to know: Almonds can be replaced by peanuts. The taste will be only slightly affected.
Directions for use
For connoisseurs, Amlou can be eaten on Moroccan bread, called "msemen", which is more like a thick pancake. Our homemade spread can also be eaten on another bread: baghrir.
It's also a thicker type of pancake, usually fresher, and is also known as the "crepe mille trous" (thousand-hole pancake).
How to store Moroccan Amlou
If you wish to have a totally homogeneous composition, you can put the product in a bain-marie, but the heat of the preparation must be controlled, and not exceed 40 degrees.
Its texture is rather creamy and can become grainy after a while, which is why we recommend mixing it and placing it in a bain-marie to regain its original texture.
