• 3 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup honey, divided
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, plus more for the bowl
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cup toasted pistachios, very finely ground
  • 1 cup turbinado sugar
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cardamom, salt and yeast.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, 1/3 cup of the honey, butter and egg, and then add to flour mixture and stir until combined.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until elastic and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  4. Butter a clean, large bowl, arrange dough in the bowl and set aside in a warm spot, covered, until risen by half, about 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, gently press dough into a 12×9-inch rectangle. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 48 squares and arrange on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. (The bites will almost touch, but leave a scant 1/2-inch between them.)
  7. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, combine orange juice and remaining 1/3 cup honey in a medium bowl.
  9. Combine pistachios and sugar in a second bowl.
  10. When cool enough to handle, dip bites in orange syrup, and then roll in pistachio mixture to coat.
  11. Serve immediately.
