Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Cake is one of my favorite comfort foods. Growing up my mother used to buy a tasty frozen coffee cake at the grocery store as a special treat.
My healthy homemade coffee cake is made with only six ingredients –almond flour, salt, baking soda, coconut oil, honey, and eggs. This easy coffee cake recipe can be thrown together in no time flat. The topping has three additional ingredients –coconut sugar, cinnamon, and sliced almonds.
Like the one Mom used to buy, this cake is moist and has a sweet cinnamon topping. It’s perfect with a cup of my Dandelion Coffee on a lazy weekend morning.
Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Cake is a fabulous low-carb, paleo brunch dish for Easter Sunday!
This low-carb Cinnamon Coffee Cake is Kosher for Passover. Like all of my recipes, it does not contain any chametz.
This Cinnamon Coffee Cake recipe is adapted from one on page 24 of my first book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, published in 2009. Both coffee cake recipes are dairy-free. All of the recipes in that cookbook are 100% dairy-free!
American coffee cake is a tender cake with rich topping baked into it. This type of coffee cake rarely contains coffee. It is called coffee cake because it is typically served at breakfast, or in the afternoon, along with tea and coffee. We often serve Cinnamon Coffee Cake for dessert after a festive meal.
Will you eat dairy? Do you consider dairy to be part of the paleo diet? Leave a comment and let me know!
This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared this recipe in March 2015.
