Spelt Apple Tart

Spelt Apple Tart by Little Upside Down Cake
You may find strange if I say I don’t eat a lot of sweets. I do make them almost every day but since I have a lot of limitations in my diet I can’t eat them. If I eat out I don’t even ask for desert list because I know all that I will find there will have wheat and/or lactose.

But from time to time I do feel a need for good dessert and it happened yesterday. I woke up thinking about what could I bake for me and already in the morning I was baking apple tart … and this apple tart is something, believe me. All of these spices and lemon … it was a perfect to satisfy my need for sweets.

    Se calhar já conhece o Green Kitchen Stories – mas se ainda não conhecer veja este blog ( há tb Apps no Itunes ). Tem receitas sem gluten e sem açucar. Eu não tenho limitações nem sou vegan mas não gosto de sobremesas com demasiado açucar e gordura, estas são óptimas.
    O que nós também queriamos era um livro com as receitas da Sanda. Ficamos à espera.
