First prepare the streusel topping. In a bowl combine chopped walnuts, quick cooking oats, ground oats and cinnamon. Add the butter and maple syrup and using a fork work into a sticky crumble mixture. Let it chill in the fridge and proceed with the recipe.
Next, make the cinnamon filling. Simply combine coconut sugar, cinnamon powder and cocoa powder.
For batter in a bowl add the sweetener and applesauce, and whisk to combine.
Add two eggs (one at a time) and vanilla extract, and using a mixer beat for 2 minutes, until foamy.
Stir in the Greek yogurt, and add all of the dry ingredients: ground oats, rice flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix just until combined and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Pour half of the batter into a 8 by 8 inch (20 by 20cm) lined baking pan, and spread evenly. Sprinkle with cinnamon filling and add the rest of the batter, spooning the batter all over.
Gently smooth the batter all over the filling and add the crumble on top. Gently press into the batter with your hand.
Bake at 350F (180C) for 40-45 minutes. Let it cool completely, then slice into 9 equal pieces.
Serve with coffee or your favorite healthy drink.
