Ingredients

100 grams almonds (unpeeled)
600 grams spelt flour
90 grams almond flour
350 grams sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 lemon
5 eggs
90 grams dried cranberries (or cherries)

Directions

1Soak the almonds in water.
2In a large bowl, add the flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and lemon zest. Whisk together and make a well in the middle.
3Crack 4 eggs into the well and start kneading the mixture together until a dough forms.
4Drain the almonds and dry them on a paper towel. Add them and the dried cranberries to the dough.
5Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
6Form the dough into 2 loaves and sprinkle the top with flour. Note that the dough will be sticky and heavy.
7Baste the tops of the loaves with remaining beaten egg and transfer onto a baking sheet leaving room between the 2 as they will rise a bit.
8Bake 30 minutes, remove from heat, and let cool about 5 minutes. Do not turn off the oven.
9With a serrated knife, cut the loaves into 1 centimeter bars. Place the bars back on the baking sheet and bake another 10 minutes, flipping after 5 minutes, until crunchy.
10Cool and serve.
