Between my old blog and this one, I think I’ve posted plenty of recipes for these veggies. So, lets get to the real question: What about those cinnamon rolls?! I made them…again…with the changes that I thought were needed. I will say that I liked the flavor better. Nailed it in the that category for me. The original recipe just wasn’t sweet enough for me when I think cinnamon roll. However, I still didn’t care for the texture. If you are going to go out of your way to make something slightly complicated, then it better be worth it! I’m not posting a recipe because I don’t think it’s worth it…and you know I only post easy, awesome, repeatable food! However, once I nailed the flavor, I have to say that it tasted SO MUCH like the coffee cake I was making last year for nutrition class! So here’s my input…make the coffee cake. Easy. Tasty. Make it into cupcakes if you want individual servings. ;)

Cinnamon Coffee Cake


  • 1/2 C Coconut Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 C maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 C Almond Flour
  • 1/2 C Arrowroot Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Swirl: 2 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 C butter
  • 1/4-1/2C Chopped Pecans

Preheat oven to 325F. Stir dry ingredients together. In a different bowl mix the wet ingredients. Combine the dry and wet. Pour into a greased 8×8 dish. Combine the swirl topping ingredients and dollop onto the cake. Use the tip of a knife to make pretty swirls. Top with pecans if you want it to be cinnamon roll-esque. Bake for 25-30 minutes!
