For the turnovers :

4 apples, peeled, cored, diced into bite-sized pieces
1 Tbsp. almond flour
All-purpose flour, for rolling out the dough
1 frozen puff pastry, thawed
½ cup palm sugar, crumbled by hand to loosen granules
½ tsp. cinnamon powder

For the egg wash :

1 egg white, whisked in

2 Tbsp. water


  1. For the filling: combine almond flour, cinnamon powder, and palm sugar until these resemble coarse meal. Toss in diced apples until well coated. Set aside.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry until ¼ inch thin. Slice into 8 pieces of 4” x 4” squares.
  3. Divide prepared apples into 8 equal portions. Spoon on individual puff pastry squares. Fold in half diagonally. Press edges to seal.
  4. Place each filled pastry on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Make sure there is ample space between pastries.
  5. Freeze for at least 20 minutes, or till ready to bake.
  6. Preheat oven to 400°F or 205°C for at 10 minutes.
  7. Brush frozen pastries with egg wash. Bring in a hot oven, and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until these turn golden brown all over.
  8. Take off the baking tray in the oven immediately. Cool slightly for easier handling.
  9. Place 1 apple turnover on a plate. Serve warm.
