Grain-Free Cake:
Apple-Cinnamon Walnut Topping:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil an 8-inch square baking pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. Add all of the ingredients for the cake except for the apple to a blender or a food processor. Blend until well combined (note: the batter will be very thick). Stir in the apple. Transfer the cake batter to the prepared baking pan and smooth into an even layer.

  3. Stir together the ingredients for the apple-cinnamon walnut topping in a bowl until well combined. Distribute the topping over the coffee cake, gently pressing the apples into the cake batter.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn off the heat and keep the coffee cake in the oven an additional 15 minutes, until the center feels firm when poked. Remove from the oven and allow cake to cool 30 minutes before cutting and serving.
