Mantecados is a very traditional Gibraltarian sweet treat, originating from Southern parts of Spain and Andalucia. It’s name comes from manteca, meaning butter/lard, with which they are usually made of and although they can be consumed at any time during the year, they are mostly eaten during Christmas or Easter holidays.

Being such a popular item, it was only a matter of time that someone would ask us for a healthier option, so we got to work and made these variations which turned out to be perfectly tasting and free from Sugar, Wheat, Gluten, Grain, Dairy, Soy & Egg. Perfect with people with many intolerances.

We shared this recipe with our fellow friends at Mama Lotties; their website caters to traditional Gibraltarian recipes and dishes, so, it felt most fitting to have it on there.

Seen below is an attempt by one of our followers, how AMAZING do they look?
