I made this last night and it was so yummy I had to share it with you!


For the almond crust:
1 cups finely crushed almonds (I used a little less than a 16 oz bag)
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp splenda or sugar substitute

Directions for the crust:
Heat oven to 350 F. Melt the butter and mix the ingredients up in a bowl. Grease your baking dish and pat the crust into place with your fingertips.

Bake for about 8-10 minutes until the crust is begins to brown. Keep an eye on it because it can brown quickly!

For the topping:
1/2 cup applesauce, no sugar added (I made my own)
2-3 granny smith apples, thinly sliced

Gently spread the applesauce over the crust. Next, overlap the apples in a circle pattern (or diagonal if you are using a square baking dish). Lastly, sprinkle with cinnamon! Bake in the oven at 375 for approximately 45 mins -1 hour.
