Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake

breakfast dairy-free desserts gluten-free paleo Dec 22, 2023

Aaaah, coffee cake! The image conjures up memories from weekends during our childhood, when we’d get something special for breakfast. That moist cake and crumb topping (cue the mouth watering). And in the fall and winter, there’s nothing better than combining coffee cake with THE fall and winter superstar - pumpkin (minus the refined flour, bad fats, and white sugar)! We give you…Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake!!

Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake


We love pumpkin pretty much as much as the next pumpkin fanatic. We love the spices that go along with all things pumpkin – but really, our favorite spice of them all is CINNAMON! Yes, we are playing “favorite child” over here 

There’s just something so special about cinnamon. It’s warm and makes anything feel like comfort food. And, it makes anything sweet taste sweeter, even if you lower the amount of sugar.

*Health benefit alert! Did you know that cinnamon can help reduce blood sugar levels? Yes, it’s true! But you’d have to consume quite a bit per day to see the effect. So, why not start with a piece of our Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake?

Secret Ingredient!

There’s a secret ingredient alert, too! If you’ve been following us for a while, you might know what it already is. Any time we make a pumpkin baked item, we love to add either organic orange zest or a few drops of wild orange essential oil. The orange is subtle, but makes you go “hmmm” when you’re eating it.

Besides adding a major flavor dimension, orange zest is super healthy! The zest is full of anti-inflammatory compounds! Bonus!

Another Secret Ingredient!

Ok, ok, there’s another secret ingredient. This recipe is already chock-full of good-for-you ingredients, like almond and coconut flour, pasture-raised eggs, and coconut oil, but we had to go and take it up another notch by adding in some collagen peptides! Yes, even more protein! Our favorite? Vital Proteins collagen peptides.

Hungry? Then make it today and share the pumpkin coffee cake love with everyone!
