Crunchy Apple Crust

Crunchy Apple Crust

Another Advent is over and Christmas is approaching with big steps.
10 days left until Christmas Eve.

Last week we received a lovely package of the Kanzi company with the request to create a delicious apple recipe.

Thus, we thought this is a great idea and started looking for a Christmas version of how we could include the apples in a delicious recipe.

The result is this super crispy apple crust with a filling of nuts, dried fruits, apples, whole grain spelt flour and no extra sweeteners.


This is definitely a healthy alternative to all the amount of sweet treats during Christmas season.


We hope you like our recipe and give it a try!


A beautiful Christmas week to you!

Greetings from the five of us!
