Healthy Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Muffin cake made with oat flour, almond butter, yogurt, honey and apples. Perfect for fall. Can be made gluten free with almond flour.
For the crumble topping:
In a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons of spelt flour, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and mix well. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut in 1 tablespoon of butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside in the fridge.
For the cake:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a bundt or loaf pan with cooking spray and set it aside.
Add oats into a blender and blend until a fine flour forms. Add all of the remaining dry ingredients (through cloves on the above list) and blend well. Pour this mixture into a large bowl and set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl combine almond butter, yogurt, honey, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Beat the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend until batter is smooth. Stir in chopped apple.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and smooth it out so the surface is level. Sprinkle with crumb topping.
Bake until crumbs are crisp and lightly browned and a knife inserted in center of cake comes out clean. This should take about 40 minutes.
Remove it from the oven and cool cake in the pan for at least 20 minutes. Then run a knife between cake and sides of pan and gently invert cake onto cooling rack. Cool thoroughly before serving.
This cake is not extremely sweet—it’s more like a muffin. If you want a sweeter cake just add some sugar or more honey. This cake is delicious served with whipping cream or vanilla ice cream/yogurt.
For a healthier version, you could omit the crumble topping.
Note, the crumble topping is actually on the bottom of the cake after you flip it out of the bundt pan. If you don’t have a bundt pan, you could always use a loaf tin or a muffin tin.
Chocolate zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chunks and drizzled with an orange-infused chocolate glaze.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
