I really wish you could eat this Cinnamon Coffee Cake while you read this post. With a gigantic cup of steamy coffee.

This cake is so delicious be prepared for it not to last very long. You will need to make two. One for me and one for you.

It certainly is big enough to share but you might not want to. It has no refined sugar, and it’s grain free which makes this the perfect treat for those of us who want perfection in perfection.

Got it? Let’s bake!

Be sure to load up your cake with a whole lot of Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream.

Dairy whipped cream is great too. Take a few extra minutes to whip it up yourself. Always worth it!

Also, top your cake with a whole lot of nuts, pomegranate seeds and cranberries. (there are nuts inside the cake as well)

They make it festive!

  1. Uhhh…
    This looks soooooooo good
    its appetizing… and the pomegranate looks like some kind of jewels on top
    The photographs looks pretty awesome too
    the minty green touch was absolutely perfect

  2. I either need to make or buy some more almond flour so I can try this out asap. Cinnamon, coconut cream, pom arils… I’m drooling like my 7 month old.

    Hmm, wonder if coconut “cream” would work as a sub for the yogurt?

  3. LOVE this recipe! Cannot wait to make it for my gluten-free man and I have to say, you are my favorite food photog ever! Your photos make me grin from the inside :) True talent. Happy holidays to you and your family!

  4. Hi Marla!

    I have been a fan for quite a while but this is my first comment.

    I got acquainted to your website when I started a diet that took the ridiculous amount of sugar I was consuming at the time, and dairy, and gluten, and, and… But you know what? I feel amazing! And you and your lovely website with your delicious recipes (I already tried quite a few) helped me so much on the early stage of my diet, because I realized food can still be beautiful and tasty!

    And on top of that, your energy is just inspiring!

    I have only one question about the stevia measurement you provide. As English is not my first language, I’m not sure I am adding the correct amounts. When you say droppers do you mean a drop or another kind of measurment?

    Thank you so much again for creating such amazing recipes!


  5. Looks Delicious…do you think the Greek yogurt could be substituted with coconut yogurt? I need something dairy & soy free

  6. I really want to make this, it looks superb. I am so behind blogging and checking out my pinterest :-( Quick question. I have used stevia powder extract in the past and I actually don’t like it at all. I find it it gives a really strong after taste flavor, sort of like splenda. How is the liquid stevia? any better? I really loved all your colorful and vivid pictures!!

  7. This was the perfect addition to my Christmas dinner (I used this as dessert). I subbed in Pumpkin for the Applesauce and added in all the Pumpkin Pie spices along with the cinnamon. Thank you so much for the recipe it will become a repeat in our house for sure. Oh, the coconut whipped cream was the biggest hit of all, my husband who hates dairy whipped cream and coconut loved the most.
