Apple Pie Snack Cake

February 10, 2014 · 18 comments

My apple love continues, this time with an “almost healthy” traveling treat.  Since my job starts in a car, and I travel from audit to audit  I try to think of fun snacks that are easy to eat while driving safely!  This snack cake includes almond meal and Greek yogurt for a good source of calcium.  The cake is packed full of apples, and has apple pie jam mixed into each bite.  I promise this apple pie snack cake will not last long….you may want to double the recipe!

Apple Pie Snack Cake

There is not a lot of sugar included in the recipe, the natural sweetness will come from the apples and the apple pie jam.  So that is why this recipe is “almost healthy.”  I have recently discovered that I need to include more calcium in my diet, but I still need the sugar for when I need a pick-me-up!  Using foods that are rich in calcium, instead of taking too many supplements, is more fun to me!

    This does look like a nice snack for travel or just to munch on when you get a bit hungry. Of course it’s healthy – it’s got apple in it doesn’t it? Anything with fruit is “healthy” in my book. :) Looks delicious!

    Good grief this looks good. Apple pie jam? Did I miss where this comes from? A recipe of yours, perhaps? We don’t have your fancy Chobani either. Looks like I’m outtaluck!

      Hi there!!! My Aunt makes special apple jam at her apple barn in Michigan. So I am in need of some more too, LOL! You could use apple jelly, or apple butter. You could also use any Greek yogurt:-) Hugs, Terra
