Cake Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plain non-dairy milk
  • 2 small containers each container 4 oz or 127 g unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Streusel Crumble Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Glaze Drizzle Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add and mix all cake ingredients together until well combined. Pour the cake batter into the baking dish.
  • Rinse and dry the same bowl and then add and gently mix together the streusel ingredients with a fork until it forms a crumble. Place the crumble evenly on top of the cake batter. Gently press down on the crumble to help it stick to the top of the cake batter.
  • Bake in oven for 40 minutes. Once the coffee cake is done baking, remove from oven and set on the counter to cool down for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slightly melt the coconut butter by heating it in the microwave for 20 seconds or in a sauce pan on low heat. Then add the maple syrup and mix both together until well combined. The mixture should be smooth and able to be drizzled with a spoon. Drizzle the glaze on top of the coffee cake.
  • Let the cake sit for few minutes to allow time for the glaze to firm up before slicing and eating. Store leftovers on the counter for a few days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
