Exhibiting amazing diversity, textures and flavours – and the fact that they feel like a giant hug – very little foods make for a better snack or breakfast option than baked goodies. But because most baked goods taste amazing but hold little to no nutritional value whatsoever, we’re eternally gratefully for brands like Alexandria’s Nousha Healthy Bakery for giving us the opportunity to indulge in our favourite baked treats sans-guilt with their menu that’s completely free of white flour, processed sugar and features a whole keto-friendly and gluten-free section. Instead, Nousha’s use honey and dates (and stevia if you’re keto) to sweeten their items as well as coconut and rice bran oil

Launched in 2018 by cousins Nashwa and Passant Zanfly, some items you can expect to find on Nousha’s menu include gingerbread, chocolate chip and oatmeal and almond cookies, as well as a range of crackers made with chickpeas and barley and oatmeal. Nousha’s gluten-free menu features Nutella, walnut and pistachio cookies, and a range of GF crackers. If on a Keto plan, you can also enjoy mozzarella bread, naan bread, keto stuffed crust pizza and much more.

“We’ve managed to create a super diverse menu that puts health at the forefront but still tastes really good,” Nashwa tells SceneEats, “With our bakery, we want to create more awareness about the food they eat, and make sure they’re aware of exactly what goes into their food, which we provide through Nousha’s.” 

Besides delivering in Alexandria, Nousha also delivers to Cairo every Friday (so Cairo residents don’t get FOMO). Ordering is available via Instagram DM @nousha_healthybakery
