Apple Almond Cake Recipe

This whole grain autumn-inspired cake uses almond meal and Greek yogurt to boost the protein. It can be eaten for breakfast, as a quick snack, or as a light dessert. Almond meal can be found in the health food section of your supermarket or online. It is sometimes called almond flour.

Tips for the cook: If you can’t find almond meal, you can make your own by grinding blanched almonds in the food processor until they turn into a fine powder.
