One Bowl Apple Snack Cake

At 8 points a slice, this is not remotely "point free." If you want to trim some points you can back off on the nuts. If you reduce the amount of nuts to 1/4 cup it will take the points per serving down to 7 points per slice.

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup brown sugar packed
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Brush an 8 or 9-inch cake pan with some of the butter. Combine in a bowl all the ingredients, including the remaining butter. Stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan.
