This coffee cake is a great weekend morning treat that will fill your house with the aroma of apples and cinnamon. Although a slice is fairly moderate in carbohydrates and has a decent fiber content, I would suggest serving this with some extra protein (such as eggs or turkey breakfast sausage) to balance the meal out.
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 whole wheat flour (I use King Arthur White Whole Wheat)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large whole egg
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup diced, peeled cooking apple
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Yield: 8 slices
Serving Size: 1 slice
Allergen Info: contains wheat, dairy, egg
