Apple Pie Snack Cake

My apple love continues, this time with an “almost healthy” traveling treat. 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. 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!
