Healthy Coffee Cake

Updated: Jun 30, 2020

Who else loves coffee cake?

The version I remember was loaded with sugar and certainly not healthy. I decided to revamp the classic coffee cake making it whole food plant based. Our coffee cake recipe is refined sugar free and so healthy that you could even have it for breakfast!

Adopting a whole food plant based lifestyle does not have to be boring nor does it have to be only be salads. I love finding new ways of creating healthy whole food plant based dishes interesting, creative, and most important - EASY.

Coffee cake is the perfect treat to bring over a friends house or impress your family with! Your entire house will seem heavenly with the aroma and your body with thank you for choosing a health promoting dish.

Thanks so much for this recipe, I used to love making and enjoying coffee cake but have not made it since I went WFPB. Just made this today and really enjoyed it! Left out the optional almond butter and just added a little extra applesauce for moisture and so pleased with how it came out. Thanks again!
