This Maple Cinnamon Coffee Cake is gluten-free and refined sugar-free. Naturally sweetened with maple syrup and laced with cinnamon, this coffee cake is a delicious, healthier fall treat. 



For the Cake:

  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted grass-fed butter
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup fine almond flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup chopped raw walnuts
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond flour


Make the Topping:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together until thoroughly combined and set aside.

Make the Coffee Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare an 8×8 baking pan by lining with parchment and greasing very well with butter.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together melted (but not hot) butter, room-temperature eggs, vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut milk.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture in two additions, stirring thoroughly until the cake batter is combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with the walnut topping to evenly coat the top of the cake.
  6. Bake the cake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Once completely cooled, cut the cake into 12 pieces. Enjoy!
