Apple Crumble (with quinoa flakes)

Apple Crumble (with quinoa flakes)

I was looking at two apples in the fruit bowl for a week now. Do I want to have an apple for a snack?  Hmm, I was kind of not in the mood for having “just an apple”, but then zap! I thought of apple crumble and 5 minutes later I was standing in the kitchen cooking 🙂 
I just love this dessert/snack, it is so satisfying and delicious. Plus, you can always change the crumble by using different flakes/oats and different flours, nuts, dry fruit, marmalade or jam. Just use your imagination!

Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars)

Zimtsterne (with tigernut flour)

Zimtsterne or cinnamon stars are one of my favorite Christmas cookies. They are also one of the easiest ones to make.

For the original recipe one needs ground almonds, egg whites and sugar.
Almonds are just great, but I had tigernut flour at home, so I thought why not give it a try!
There is also a bonus of using tiger nuts: they are very sweet, so one can use only half of the sugar normally needed to make these cookies.
