  • 1 tablespoon Natvia Stevia blend

  • 2 teaspoons spelt flour

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon melted coconut oil

  • 1.

    To make the pastry, combine flours and salt in a medium sized bowl and make a well in the centre.

  • 2.

    Mix 200ml warm water with coconut oil until melted, then pour into the centre of the flour, stirring until just combined.
