Coffee cake recipe- low carb, paleo, GAPs, grain free

Coffee cake recipe - gluten free, paleo, grain free and low carb |GAPs certified

Today, I am sharing this delicious low carb coffee cake recipe that will satisfy your carb cravings.

 

My priorities have shifted lately since I started following a low starch diet, I now highly value my health even more than before.  For this reason I decided to eliminate coffee from my diet and become best friends with teas, pumpkin lattes and more teas. I used to be a heavy cafe au lait drinker and was not gonna give it away for anything.

 

Since following a grain free diet, I started facing my own insecurities (though that’s for another post).  It’s true that food can provide a lot of comfort and a sense of security.  Most comfort foods are made of grain flours and sugars. When you stop eating them, it’s like you have nowhere to hide.  You can no longer grab that piece of bread, savour that donut at the end of a stressful day, or grab that burger at the mall because the smell of the buns are just so irresistible, and life is too short not to.

 

So by avoiding that feeling of reaching out to comfort food, you are now facing the feeling and not “distracting” it.  I want to write more about this in another blog post..but for now, let’s keep this post about the low carb coffee cake recipe I’m about to share 🙂

This recipe is so delicious. I completely made it up as I was craving something to snack on with tea. It turned pretty amazing not to share it with you.. So here goes

LOW CARB COFFEE CAKE RECIPE

Low carb coffee cake – gluten free, paleo, GAPs, grain free

Prep Time: 5 min 10 minutes

30 minutes

Serving Size: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips (semi-sweetened)
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp organic honey
  • Few drops of vanilla extract.
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an oven baking pan with coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Transfer the mix onto the oiled oven baking pan - I used a glass pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes - you can poke the center of the cake with a fork to make sure it comes out clean and dry.
  5. Let the cake cool down at room temperature for about an hour before slicing it.
  6. This cake can be served warm or cold after refrigirating.

    Hi! What do you mean by oven tray/plate? How can you just put the batter on a tray or did you cook it in the glass bowl? Is this a serving for one person?

      Hey Kelly,

      Sorry for the confusion. I poured the batter in an oiled glass pan. You can use either a glass pan or a regular nonstick pan. Hmm this gave me about 4 generous pieces, I would say 4 servings (2 persons can hava 2 pieces) 🙂 Let me know if that’s clear!
