I feel like paleo gets a bad rep. It sounds so healthy, and restricts so much, that there can’t be any goodies.

Man, was I wrong. There is so much you can do with the paleo diet to keep it exciting, and still get to eat your sweets too.

Swapping out ingredients with paleo-friendly ingredients seems so simple. And it was! The result was the yummiest coffee cake I have ever tasted.

This coffee cake is AMAZING. It is so moist and delicious. It makes breakfast time easy, and an awesome pairing with coffee.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve done Paleo. I just love dairy too much to go 100%. This recipe looks delicious and I’m always looking for make ahead breakfast items I can get out of the freezer. If I wanted to substitute Pyre (stevia) for the coconut sugar what would be the conversion? I’m not a Coconut fan. I use MCT oil instead of coconut oil because of the taste. But I don’t have an equivalent to coconut sugar.

    Is it bad that I want to eat this with ice cream? That’s breakfast food, right? I think this looks wonderful and it is kind of making me hungry right now. I like that you used Paleo ingredients as I don’t often see many cake recipes that are on the healthier side. Thanks for sharing!
