Coffee Cake. So Coffee doesn't have to drink alone.

Image
Normally Saturday morning is Pancakes. All kinds. But today I was inspired to once again try to make a coffee cake. You know the one. With the stream of cinnamon sugar and a few nuts rolling through it along with a hint of apple? But creating that slice of deliciousness without wheat flour has been challenging. I've tried coconut flour.... eew. Dry as a bone. I tried whey protein... not so agreeable with me. So this time, I did a little of this and a little of that. The two ingredients you may not find in your pantry? Full fat peanut flour and Maca Powder. Both available from nuts.com which I freely admit to being addicted to. Love that place. And no, I do not receive any compensation for saying that.

GGGFree Coffee Cake

Preheat oven to 350. Grease an 8 x 8 pyrex dish.

1 cup Almond flour less three tbsp 
1 cup full fat Peanut Flour
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
3 TBSP Maca Powder
2 teaspoons BAKING POWDER
1/2 cup sweetener. Use a natural granular that measures and bakes cup for cup like sugar…

Sure Ive got a Muffin Top. I've got hundreds and I love them all.

Always trying to improve upon a necessary breakfast food, here's another tweak to the muffin. Some of the ingredients are not ordinary staples in your pantry, I understand that. But if you live a grain free life, and eat low carb foods, these are new pantry essentials that will turn a low carb diet into a fabulous new way to eat. Diet is an ugly word. It's restrictive. It is something you can go "on" and "off" which is awful for you. Just learn to use a few new kitchen essentials and you won't miss a thing.
Except maybe corn. Cannot help you there.

Remember, if you are unfamiliar with some of the ingredients, send me a note and I'll let you know where to find them!

Now, muffins aren't fussy. So you can make these in a bowl with a mixing spoon, no fancy electric mixers or dough paddles required. Just a few minutes to whisk and stir.
