12 Tbsp. Land O’Lakes Light Butter with Canola Oil

1/4 cup Lankato sugar substitute 

1 Tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 Tsp. kosher salt 

1 cup almond flour 

1/2 cup whole wheat flour 


1 gala apple, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

1 granny smith apple, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

2 Tsps. lemon juice 

2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour 

2 Tbsp. Swerve brown sugar substitute

1 Tsp. ground cinnamon 

1/4 Tsp. ground cardamom 

1/4 Tsp. freshly grated nutmeg 

1/4 Tsp. kosher salt 


3/4 cup almond flour

1/4 cup Swerve brown sugar substitute

1/2 Tsp. ground cinnamon 

1/4 Tsp. kosher salt 

3 Tbsp. Land O’Lakes Light Butter with Canola Oil

4 Oz. crumbled halva


1. For the crust: Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8-by-8-inch square pan with enough parchment paper to have 1-inch overhang on 2 sides.
2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, combine the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt and beat on medium until pale and fluffy. Reduce to low, add both flours and mix to combine. Press evenly into the pan and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes, while you make the filling.
3. For the filling: In a large bowl, toss the apples with the lemon juice. Sprinkle in the flour, sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and salt and toss to combine. Arrange evenly on top of the crust.
4. For the crumble: In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add the butter and mix with your hands until crumbly. Sprinkle all over the apples. Sprinkle on the halva. Bake until the crumbles begin to brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in the pan completely, about 1 hour and then slice into bars.
NOTE: You can buy store bought halva or make your own. See my basic Halva Recipe.
