Vegan Coffee Cake

My twin sister and I have had a bit of a sweet tooth the last couple of days, and this coffee cake with pecan honey coconut crust sure did the trick. Between the both of us we polished it off within two days. It was so moist and delicious, you’d never guess it’s grain and dairy free! The recipe was adapted from the PaleoOMG food blog. I altered the recipe by using different flours and added coconut flakes so that the cake had a bit more crunch. I hope you enjoy it, just as much as we did!coffee cake
