Apple-Oatmeal Cake (Flourless and Gluten-Free)
Tasty apple-oatmeal cake made of oats and coconut flour with a fine cinnamon touch, suitable as a healthy dessert or as a filling sweet breakfast. This healthy cake is without added flour, gluten, or fat.
There are plenty of recipes for healthy apple cakes, and each one is unique in its own way. This recipe will please all fans of a healthy lifestyle. The cake is rich in nutrients and at the same time, will fill you up well. You will find a lot of fiber, but also protein inside. Instead of oil, we will use Greek yogurt in the recipe, that will soften it and is also rich in protein.
Thanks to coconut flour and oats, this flourless apple-oatmeal cake is lovely juicy and tender. The cake is sweetened with honey, and the pieces of juicy raisins hidden in every bite are enhancing its taste, too. If you don't like raisins, you can of course omit them or replace them with dried cranberries.
Enjoy this healthy apple cake recipe, it will prove very useful in apple season. I like to serve it with pecan nuts and a cup of good coffee, yummy.
