For a healthy eating snack that the whole family will love, you can’t beat a wholesome cake like this.
There’s no need for any butter or sugar in a recipe like this, the natural sweetness comes from the apples and bananas.
Once completely cooled, freeze in individual slices so that you always have healthy eating snacks on hand. Simply defrost in the microwave or in the toaster.
