Raspberry Walnut Coffee Cake


1 ¼ cups almond milk
½ tablespoon flaxseed
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup maple syrup
1.5 tablespoons oil
1 cup oat flour
1 cup walnuts (or any other nut), ground into a fine powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup instant oats, optional
¼ to 1/3 cup raspberry jam, for swirling
Crumble topping:
¼ cup walnuts, crushed
¼ cup oat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1.5 tablespoons turbinado sugar
¼ cup rolled oats, optional
1 tablespoon oil


Preheat oven to 375 and grease an 8x8 pan.
Combine all wet ingredients—milk, flax, vanilla, syrup, oil. Let stand while grinding the walnuts. It’s okay if the walnuts are still a little chunky—texture is good. Whisk together with the baking soda, cinnamon, salt and additional oats, if using.
Pour half the batter into prepared pan. Using a spoon, dollop lines of jam across the batter and swirl into batter using a knife. Pour the rest of the batter on top.
Mix up the crumble topping: add the walnuts to a bag and crush until broken down into pea-sized crumbs. Toss with the oat flour, cinnamon, sugar and rolled oats if using. Stir in the tablespoon of oil until the everything starts to come together--mixture should be crumbly. Sprinkle the topping evenly across the top of the batter and bake for 25 minutes, or until browned on top and it springs back slightly when touched. Serve warm.

Very useful! I combined this recipe here: http://www.bubblews.com/news/336582-easy-and-simple-coffee-cake-recipe

with yours to make a simple but excellent coffee cake.



This rich, dense coffee cake uses buttery ground walnuts in place of most of the fat and a swirled jam filling that adds sweetness without loads of refined sugar.
