Apple & Walnut Slice

Updated: Jul 1, 2021


This recipe is inspired by one of my favourite Croatian cakes. I've used Spelt Flour instead of regular flour and sweetened it with Rapadura Sugar. I love using Emmer flour as it is an ancient grain, it has a low glycemic index, lower in gluten and higher in fibre than regular flour. I buy my Emmer flour here.
