Paleo Peach Coffee Cake with Coconut Crumble Topping

Coffee cake? What the hell is a coffee cake anyway?

First, it doesn’t have coffee in it. And I’m obsessed with coffee.

Second, it’s cake for breakfast. Sugar, flour, sugar… sounds like a mid-morning mental crash followed by sugar withdrawal setting in shortly after. It also sounds like a regular sugarflourbutter muffin but that’s a different rant.

Third, there aren’t many coffee cake versions out there that are actually healthy.

And then I suppose we need to take a step back and all agree on what healthy really means.

For sake of argument, let’s pretend like this (see photo above!) is a healthy coffee cake. Oh wait!! It IS!

A deliciously baked piece of breakfast cake that warrants enough nutrition to fret not about guilt.

A moist yet wonderfully crumbly square that’s free of gluten, grains, soy, dairy, but IS topped with sweet coconut sugar crystals, slivered almonds and coconut every-so-lightly toasted and crunchy.

A Paleo breakfast (or snack) (or lunch) treat that, although does not include coffee, should be handled with coffee. [Insert coffee mug emoji here]

I guess it’s really just an excuse to have cake with coffee. And to eat cake. Paleo cake!

It’s also an excuse to use the overabundance of peaches that my kitchen was blessed with.

What DO you do with all of those peaches?!

Paleo Peach Ice Cream? Someone… make that and report back.

This coffee cake bakes up perfectly for a morning treat, an afternoon snack, post-dinner/post-workout dessert. It’s slightly sweet, perfectly moist, crunchy on top but soft and fluffy inside.

Did I mention it’s Paleo Cake?

I picked peaches (get it?? 😉 ) since I had a ton I needed to use, but feel free to use any fruit of choice. Plums, nectarines, apricots, raspberries… all would be great in this.

It’s all about the fruit compote, which you should make regardless of this coffee cake. It’s just lovely. With a spoon. And possibly almond butter next to it. Just saying…

Aside from being a GREAT, easy recipe to make and enjoy over and over again, this is my second entry for the So Delicious and Go Dairy Free Snackable Recipe Contest, Sweet Category.

I used So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer in this recipe but for strict Paleo you can use So Delicious Coconut Milk. Either is delicous and adds such a lovely creaminess to this bake perfection.
