Paleo Coffee Cake
Who doesn’t love a good coffee cake?! For me, coffee cake needs to be packed with that cinnamon sugary filling and topping. I need to really taste some sugar in every bite ya know? This coffee cake is so fabulous and also happens to be grain free, dairy free and refined sugar free! I love all the baked goods when it gets chilly out and it is finally getting CHILLY here in southern California. I mean, highs of 62 chilly, which means 45 in the mornings which is FROZEN for people like me. I love when this weather comes around and we can turn on the fireplace and bundle up with sweaters and blankets. I can’t imagine living in a snowy climate because like I said… 45 is freezing for me! So while we have this cold weather I am going to enjoy every bit of it with coffee cake and all of the yummy things the season has to offer. The layers of this cake is what makes it. You use the same mixture on the top and in the middle but the middle comes out almost creamy and sweet where the top is perfectly crumbly! So if it’s dropped bel0w 70 where you live, get these ingredients together and make the best paleo coffee cake you’ve ever had!!

I can’t wait to make this recipe! Been looking for a paleo coffee cake all fall <3
So good to hear! Enjoy
Hi! Is there a sub for arrowroot? I want to make this so bad this morning but I don’t have any arrowroot!
You can just use cornstarch!
On this rainy, cold, Chicago day I decided this coffee cake with another cup of coffee was just the splurge I needed. I wasn’t sure how this would turn out, because I only had about half the almond flour and had to sub cassava flour. Turned out amazing!! Soooo good..moist and flavorful. A definite keeper. Even my husband loved it, and he is not into the healthiest food. Great job!
That is awesome!!
This cake is so amazing! It makes so much. I ran out of ghee and had to use some coconut oil in both the cake and the crumble. It was delish! So moist.
How do I store the leftovers?
Love it!! I would store in the fridge so they last longer!
Delicious! Perfect sweet treat for Thanksgiving morning.
Perfect treat for a holiday breakfast!!! My whole family enjoyed it!!
We love to hear this!! Enjoy
Delicious and healthy take on Coffee Cake! I was craving something sweet and this recipe did the trick. The recipe came together really quickly. I substituted regular milk because I was out of almond milk and it worked just fine. Definitely will make again!
Oh mylanta. I don’t think this cake will last a full 24 hours in our house! This very pregnant mamma thanks you for this delicious recipe!
So glad you enjoyed!
BEST COFFEE CAKE EVER! Family favorite.
