- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cup flour, whole wheat
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger, ground

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8" square baking pan and set aside.
Dice one of your apples and thinly slice the other one. Toss the diced apples with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon until well coated and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, remaining cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder together.
Add applesauce, sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Mix until almost combined, then add diced apples. Continue to mix, adding a little extra milk if necessary.
Pour batter into baking pan and use a spatula to evenly distribute batter. Arrange apple slices over top, a little overlap is okay.
