Description:
Honestly, this sugar-free apple date cake with coconut topping recipe is the best! No other healthy cake quite compares to the melt-in-the-mouth texture, the caramel-toffee flavor that comes entirely from the sweet date and tart apple combination, and the to-die-for golden. chewy coconut topping that wonderfully finishes off this cake. It can be made a few days ahead of time, in fact, it just gets better as the flavors enhance over time! It freezes brilliantly too. It’s healthy after all.
