Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Coffee Cake


Before you start to feel guilty about baking yet another desert, let me just say that the batter is made using non-fat plain Greek yogurt and unsweetened applesauce. The almond flour has a compelling amount of vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients. But no need to worry, the chunks of golden brown sugar and cinnamon still top this delicious treat at only 110 calories. So eat away, guilt free!
