Makes a standard loaf tin
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup + 1 tbsp brown sugar
2/3 cup plain yogurt
½ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup almond flour
2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp baking powder
Juice and zest of a large lemon
A pinch of salt
Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F. Peel, core and slice the apples thinly a mix with 1 tablespoon of sugar, the cinnamon powder and the lemon juice and zest.
Whisk the eggs with the sugar until lightened and fluffy. Next whisk in the yogurt and the olive oil. When all the liquid ingredients are well mixed, gently add the dry ingredients: the oats, almond flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. When there’s no lumps left, gently fold in the slices of apple, with the juice left at the bottom of the bowl.
The batter will be wet. Pour into a buttered and floured tin and bake for 40 – 50 minutes, until golden, and when a toothpick comes out clean. Rest for 15 minutes before unmolding. Let cool before slicing.
