High Protein Apple Yoghurt Cake

Written by Steve Collins on July 29, 2022

This high protein Apple Yoghurt cake is quick and easy to make, and for most people, it's gut health supportive.

Apples have FODMAPs in them - but we don't really pay so much attention to that. We pay more attention to their preparation, the amount you eat, the calmness in which you eat them, and the state of the digestive system you're planning on sliding that apple into.

Getting caught up heavily into a low FODMAP diet won't fix your gut problem.

After all, apples are also full of prebiotic fibre, vitamins and minerals, and a great source of natural energy. Well cooked, we've always found most people do great on the amount of apple in this recipe.

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 cup greek yoghurt
  • 2 small apples, grated or diced

Dry Ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 180°C / 356°F
  • Dice up your apples into chunks. You want them to be small enough so they will cook through, but large enough so you get chunks in your cake.
  • Add all wet ingredients to a large bowl and mix well with a whisk.
  • Add the dry ingredients on top of the wet mixture. Try to mix the dry ingredients together gently, while on top of the wet mixture. This doesn't have to be perfect, you just want to make sure all the baking powder + flour are incorporated. Then, gently mix the dry mixture into the rest of the wet ingredients, just until combined.
  • Gently fold in about ⅔ of the apple cubes to the mix, reserving some for the top.
  • Pour the batter into your baking dish. Top it off with remaining apple chunks, cinnamon.
  • Bake for 35 - 40 minutes. Check when fork inserted in middle comes out clean.
