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!
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!
