Keto Coffee Cake… mmm!

Saturday mornings at our house, I like to try making a new breakfast. Something a bit more fun then our weekday eggs done fifty ways. I haven’t had a slice of real coffee cake in…I can’t remember how long but for some reason it popped into my head. The last thing I want to do in the mornings is send myself (or my family) on a major sugar rush, so I wanted to come up with a much lower carb, higher fiber version that can still pass my five year olds sniff and taste test. I took stock of what I already had in-house and came up with my own variation. The texture is still a little “grainy” (even though this is a grain-free recipe) but it was moist enough and very flavorful to make up for the less caky feel. I also whipped up some coconut cream and melted cinnamon butter over the top… got your attention now didn’t I? Without further delay here is the Keto Coffee Cake recipe
