Amlou is a rare treat from Morocco. It is a blend of Almond butter, Argan Oil and Orange Blossom honey.
Amlou is typically eaten at breakfast time or served after a meal, especially with tea. It is excellent as a spread on bread or beghrir (semolina pancakes) as well as traditional pancakes. Our favorite way to eat it is with pita bread or a french baguette with Cafe Au Lait.
Amlou is commonly used by certain Berber tribes of Morocco for pastry making. It was consumed by the nomads who crossed the desert. It is a famous aphrodisiac that is traditionally kept in the bedroom of those that could afford it and is a often given as a very special wedding gift to newlyweds.
