Lunch Box Chronicles: Day Ten (Spelt Right Apple Cinnamon Tarts)

After a day in Boston at the EPA Earth Day event and a day in Scarborough at the Hannaford Earth Day event, we are really too tired to be creative, but I am going to provide you a little tidbit on the health benefits of spelt. Spelt is loaded with Manganese, which is a trace element that helps to activate certain enzymes. It is known for its anti-oxidant qualities. Spelt is a great source of manganese.

As for the lunch box treat, I took one Spelt Right pizza dough and let rise to double its size (actually this was a dough that I inadvertently left out overnight and then put back in the fridge for another two days). Other ingredients: two apples, 3 TBL organic evaporated cane juice (sugar), 2 Teaspoons organic cinnamon. Chopped apples finely, mix in sugar and cinnamon. Make three rounds (you will have extra dough that you can be creative with), place 1/3 of the filling in each round, shape into triangle. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes or until browned.

Again, we are too full to test tonight so will give you the rating tomorrow. Pictures will be posted tomorrow too.

In the meantime, eat well and sleep well!

  1. I never got a taste of this one, just couldn't! But Little Olivia gave it a resounding two thumbs up. Emma ran off with one out the door saying yummm, and Spencer said, hey, I didn't even get one.
