Almond Flour Coffee Cake that is perfectly moist and fluffy with amazing cinnamon pecan topping. This delicious healthy coffee cake recipe is paleo, grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free.
Well, this is long overdue!
If you’ve been following my site for a few years, you know I have about 17 million coffee cake recipes. All requiring different funky add-ins to make each very unique and special…but every single coffee cake recipe is made with coconut flour.
This is our first foray into almond flour coffee cake, and I really must say….I’m obsessed.
This paleo coffee cake turns out tasting plenty cinnamony and is perfectly sweet. In my mind, coffee cake shouldn’t be as sweet as a standard cake…subtly sweet but not in a dessert-like way.
It is nice and moist and has a buttery flavor to it in spite of the fact that it contains no butter. In my mind, it’s the perfect healthy treat for anyone to enjoy as breakfast or snack. PLUS, if you have family or guests around that have dietary restrictions, this is a marvelous recipe that fits multiple restrictions.
First things first, let’s talk ingredients:

Pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bars? What say you?
Let’s face it – they’re basically identical save for the shape. Same great pumpkin taste, just wearing a different outfit.
If, on the other hand, you don’t own a pie pan, or if you’re intimidated by pies, no sweat! You can still enjoy pumpkin pie in bar-form, and for some reason they seem much less complicated than baking an actual pie.
The cinnamony maple pumpkin filling atop a shortbread-like grain-free pie crust is absolutely mouth-watering, and an amazing dessert to share.

Have you ever dreamt up a sinfully addictive dessert that is all-things gooey, chewy, soft yet crunchy, caramel-y yet crispy, creamy and nutty with an explosion of flavor and texture?
That is, in a nutshell, these Paleo Pecan Pie Bars.
…Or pecan goo bars as I like to call them.
The only thing that could possibly make them better is if they were dipped in dark chocolate.
First things first: I mentioned this in my recent post for Keto Pecan Pie, but I find some people turn their nose up to pecan desserts because they assume they won’t like them (this was me the first 18 years of my life).
Before you decide you don’t need these bars in your life, let me line out all the reasons you do. Starting with an overly descriptive summary of what a pecan bar actually is.
If you’ve never tried pecan pie or pecan bars, here’s the basic gist: Delectably maple-y gooey pecans engulfed in homemade caramel nestled on top of a buttery shortbread crust with a perfect thin layer of crisp at the top as well as a nice crunch at the bottom.
It’s basically two layers of wild, wild rebellion.
Don’t cancel me.
Aside from being paleo, vegan, dairy-free, grain-free, and sweetened with less processed sugars, these pecan pie bars are a true delight to make.
They’re a great family project to make with kidlets as well as lovely edible gifts for friends and family. I highly encourage you to make them for dessert for Thanksgiving!
