Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake ~ A Recipe

So... I know coffee cake usually has some sort of a crumbly topping, but this lil' dish o' goodness needs no such thing.  It's already plenty sweet and satisfying on it's own, and simplicity is the name of the game.  No one would ever guess it's made with almond flour; even the gluten-free-wary can't help but delight in a square.  Or two.

Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake
Prep. time: 5 minutes, cook time: 25 minutes, serves 10
  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ.  Grease a 9x13 pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients but the apples and beat on high for about 1 minute.  Add grated apples and stir on low just until incorporated.
  3. Scrape batter into greased pan and bake for 25 minutes or until the edges are brown and the middle doesn't wiggle.  Cool for about 10 minutes and serve warm.


  1. Thanks! We are just starting our second week gluten free and I want to try this! The only sweetner we are currently using is raw honey. If I substitute that do you think I need to change the recipe in any way?

  2. Ritter005- Did you try it with the honey? I was wondering that myself...

  3. I just made this using honey (a little less than half a cup) and although it tastes delicious, it baked up really soft. Another factor to that could have been the fairly large apples I was using also. Welp, have to try it again to find out for sure! ;). It was a definite WIN in my family. Thanks Katie ;)

  4. Perfect timing for this post! I have been looking for a quick easy to eat breakfast for me for days I have to take my little guy to school and I just seem to have NO time!

  5. You might want to use 1/3 cup honey instead of 1/2 cup sugar.

  6. We love these on school days because it's a yummy warm breakfast and a fun snack to add to school lunches.

  7. Yummy...we made these & they are delicious!! Thanks for a great recipe & we look forward to trying some more from your site!
