Paleo Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Nut + Cassava Free)

When you think paleo diet, I bet you don’t have cinnamon coffee cake in mind…

But when I asked my Instagram followers what dessert they’ve been missing the most on a Paleo diet, a very popular response was Coffee Cake. And I could not have agreed more… Coffee Cake was definitely a favorite of mine growing up, and since switching to a Paleo diet and a more gut healing-friendly way of eating, I don’t think I’ve had coffee cake in years.

So, I got my recipe development hat on, and with the help of an amazing nut and cassava-free flour blend by Beth Blends, I was able to create a pretty darn good paleo version of Cinnamon Coffee Cake that can fit into most gut-healing diets.

Beth Blends is a really cool company that creates AIP and healing diet-friendly, grain-free flour blends so that everyone can enjoy making baked goods like they used to. I’m a huge fan of their blends, and could not have made this paleo cinnamon coffee cake recipe as easily without them.

Here’s the recipe, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
