½ cup plain Greek yogurt
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

⅓ cup whole wheat flour

To prepare this delicious recipe, 1 tsp of Nutella® per person is enough to enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease the bottom of an 8-inch (20cm) square cake pan with butter and flour.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and brown sugar. Add yogurt and applesauce. Beat until mixture is smooth.
In another bowl, mix the two kinds of flour, wheat germ, baking powder and salt.
Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix until smooth. Add the grated apples, carrots and chopped nuts. Mix well.
Spread the mixture in the cake pan and bake 50 minutes.
Once the cake has cooled, cut into 12 equal pieces. Then, cut each individual piece in half and spread 1 tbsp of Nutella® on one half. Place the other half on top, like a sandwich. For breakfast on the go, wrap in parchment paper and take with you.
