When I was a little girl my mom would make 'Nussecken' whenever our VW-campervan would hit the road for a weekend away. It must be one of those German hit recipes of the 80's because I have never seen them anywhere but at home and neither my Scottish counterpart nor Aussie are familiar with them.On my recent visit to homeland, I walked into this beautiful organic supermarket in Straubing and they sold a vegan version of my childhood snack and they tasted really nice! So I went on a baking quest to bring a revised version of Nussecken back to the table: Gluten free, plant-based with reduced/natural sugars, extra fibre and a longer shelf life.
