Apple-Cinnamon-Walnut Skillet Cake

In addition to naturally sweet apples, other nourishing ingredients in this cake include Omega-3-rich walnuts, along with a duo of fiber-rich flours: whole-grain buckwheat and brown rice. Cinnamon takes the flavor up a notch, and with no eggs or dairy, this cake is perfect for anyone following a vegan diet. Even better? It's totally acceptable to pair a slice with some protein-rich Greek yogurt and happily declare "Breakfast is served!"

1/3 cup sparkling water or unsweetened dairy-free milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
