Beyond the Bite Cinnamon Coffee Cake

(Serves 8)

Cake Ingredients

Topping Ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a food processor, puree plantain, maple syrup, palm shortening, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Whisk together grain free baking powder, sea salt, and sweet potato flour in a separate bowl, then add to the food processor and puree until just combined.
  • Grease a 6x2 inch round cake pan and cut out a piece of parchment paper to fit into the bottom of the pan.
  • Evenly scoop the cake batter into the prepared pan.
  • To create the topping, pulse the banana chips, cinnamon, sea salt, and sweet potato flour until crumbly, then add in palm shortening and maple syrup, pulsing until a sticky crumble forms.
  • Transfer the crumble to the top of the cake batter and lightly press it down.
  • Place the cake in the oven to bake for 40-45 minutes, until the cake has pulled away from the sides and the middle is no longer wet inside when a toothpick is inserted.

Recipe Notes

Coconut oil can be used in place of the non-hydrogenated palm shortening.
