Recipe: Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Coffee Cake



Although this recipe calls for cake mix, it is anything but unhealthy! 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 fret not, the globs of golden brown sugar and cinnamon still top this delicious treat at only 110 calories per serving!
