Recipe type: Breakfast/Dessert
Phase: 3
Serves: 1 cake
Cake Ingredients
  • 2 cups oat flour
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened plain non-dairy milk
  • 2 small containers (each container 4 oz or 127 g) unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Streusel Crumble Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Glaze Drizzle Ingredients
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add and mix all cake ingredients together until well combined. Pour the cake batter into the baking dish.
  3. Rinse and dry the same bowl and then add and gently mix together the streusel ingredients with a fork until it forms a crumble. Place the crumble evenly on top of the cake batter. Gently press down on the crumble to help it stick to the top of the cake batter.
  4. Bake in oven for 40 minutes. Once the coffee cake is done baking, remove from oven and set on the counter to cool down for a few minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, slightly melt the coconut butter by heating it in the microwave for 20 seconds or in a sauce pan on low heat. Then add the maple syrup and mix both together until well combined. The mixture should be smooth and able to be drizzled with a spoon. Drizzle the glaze on top of the coffee cake.
  6. Let the cake sit for few minutes to allow time for the glaze to firm up before slicing and eating. Store leftovers on the counter for a few days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
