The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook

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!

Where's The Coffee?

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.

    Ingredients are easy and stocked
    *note I subbed monkfruit sweetener for the coconut sugar (lower carb)
    And used a combo of chopped pecans & almonds for the topping .
    Thank you for your fantastic recipes

    BONUS :I will be serving your lemon honey chicken tonight .

  2. No I don’t eat dairy because it’s an inflammatory food. It doesn’t work for me because I have auto immunity. I also can’t have legumes and of course gluten.
    Thank you so much for your delicious looking recipes.

  3. I’m not eating eggs. What would you recommend as replacement? I don’t do soy or flax seed either. I do use chia seeds

  4. Wow! I NEVER thought I would find a paleo coffee cake that would come close to my moms non paleo recipe! What an amazing recipe even better than the non paleo and simple to make! I used avo oil, maple syrup and added 1tsp vanilla extract to the batter. The topping was the same just used avo oil. It came out delicious and light with that beautiful cinnamon topping, totally unexpected! Thanks!
