It is sometimes difficult to find quick, easy and healthy snack ideas that are still incredibly delicious. We would usually end up with store-bought chocolate bars or other junk treats that are loaded with sugar and preservatives. With this recipe, you can make a deliciously moist, light, gluten-free, and dairy-free apple snack cake which you can take with you to work or pack in your kids’ lunchboxes. You can even use 2 apples in this recipe if you want a more custard-like consistency rather than a cakey one.
