Yep! That’s a healthy coffee cake slice right there.


Mmmm coffee cake. Usually piled high with a brown sugar and butter crumble, traditional coffee cake is more of a sugar bomb than well rounded breakfast. How it earned it’s place among the breakfast spread I’m not sure. It should be relegated to late night dessert, given that un-healthified versions boast up to 400 calories and 36 grams of sugar per slice.


Fortunately, I’ve come up with a great alternative. This healthy coffee cake is still cakey and moist, but doesn’t have half the sugar and calories of regular versions. It even comes with a little extra protein to hold you over.


No, the dog definitely didn’t get any though he begged hard for it

And only 65 calories at that! I baked it in an 8×8 pan and cut it up in to 16 slices, but you could halve it if you wanted a bigger treat.

I’ve been eating this healthy coffee cake every day for breakfast. The whole grains definitely help to hold me over all morning.
