Easter is coming up and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious brunch with loved ones?! Organizing an Easter brunch means you can put so many delicious things on the table and I prefer to have it homemade. If you are in need of some inspiration to serve this weekend, I’ve got the perfect recipe for you: a healthy no-sugar version of the famous apple tarte tatin. Simple to make and so delicious!
Tarte tartin is a French apple pie (but other fruit can be used too) which is baked with the crust on top instead of underneath the filling. You flip it upside down when it’s done and serve a special looking treat that leaves you mouthwatering. Normally, these pies are covered with a caramelized layer, making it not the best choice when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. But I’ve managed to create a more suitable version, that still has that similar taste experience! I will make this healthy apple tarte tatin as an Easter brunch dessert and I’m sure everyone will end up fully satisfied with this lovely closure 🙂
Enjoy your Easter weekend with lots of good food and laughter ladies 🙂 Oh and please leave me a comment if there’s a classic type of food that you want me to make Foodie-ness proof!

1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
2. Grab a bowl and add the almond flour, spelt flour, milk, coconut oil, baking powder, vanilla extract to taste, a pinch of salt and about 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix everything together. I used my hands to make a large ball out of the dough. Set this aside for a moment.
3. Peel the apples, remove the core and slice them thinly, creating crescent shapes. Now heat up a pan with some coconut oil and bake both sides of the apple slices on low fire. Meanwhile add the cinnamon to fry with it, releasing lovely flavor and smell.
4. Take a spring pie tin from 20 cm and grease it up with a little coconut oil or baking spray. Start with covering the bottom with the apple slices. Try to lay them close together, starting on the outsides and working your way to the middle. Spread some extra cinnamon over it and add a second layer of apples on top of that.
5. Now take your ball of dough and flatten it with a rolling pin to the size of the pie form. Lay over the apples and press it firmly (!), also on the sides. Usually tarte tatins have a thin crust, but I made it slightly thicker, because it just tastes way too good!
6. Place the tarte tatin in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
7. When time’s up take the tarte out the oven, let it cool down a little, and then invert on a plate. You now got the crust on the bottom and are ready to enjoy it while it’s still a bit warm! YAY to healthy apple tarte tatin :p
