Crumbly coffee cake

Crumbly soft and moist coffee cake! The crunchy cinnamon topping is dreamy. I took a coffee cake recipe from one of my favorites – @ellaclaireblog – and made it all #glutenfree #paleo and #refinedsugarfree. Recipe on the website!


* 3 tablespoons melted or room temp coconut oil
* 1 egg
* 1/2 cup almond milk
* 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
* 2 tablespoons honey
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 1.5 cups almond flour sifted (@bobsredmill blanched is best!)
* 2 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 3/4 cup chopped apples (firmer the better)


* 1 tablespoon honey
* 3 tablespoons almond flour (I used the coarse bits left over after sifting for the cake above)
* 2 tsp cinnamon
* 1 tablespoon ghee
* 1/2 cup walnuts

Mix wet and dry ingredients separately by hand just until combined (don’t over mix). Combine both and add in the chopped apples. Add to a bread pan or silicone cake molds. In a food processor, blend the cinnamon topping ingredients until they start to stick together. Add the topping to the top of the bread/cakes. Press down a bit, so the topping sinks halfway to the middle of the cake. Bake for 25 mins in a preheated 375 degree oven. Super important – make sure the cake is fully baked when you take it out of the pan/molds. This mix is very moist, so if needed, put the cakes back in the oven (out of the pan/molds) for another 5-10 until baked through. I store these in the fridge and have with my morning coffee and a bit of jam, so good!
