If you’re a fan of coffee cake or blueberry muffins, you’re bound to go berserk over this simple yet amazingly cozy recipe!

After posting my Dairy-Free Keto Coffee Cake recipe last year, I figured I would revisit the topic by making a couple of changes.

The result? A beautifully moist and fluffy cinnamon swirled coffee cake with little pockets of berry bliss.

Coffee cake may as well have its own category on this site, as I’ve made nearly a dozen recipes using various flours and adding various fruits and flavors.

My Paleo Blueberry Coffee Cake  continues to be one of my most popular recipes, so I just knew it would only be right to make it sugar-free for my low-carb friends.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients!

Keto Blueberry Coffee - grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free

Ingredients for Keto Blueberry Coffee Cake:

Coconut Oil or Butter: Melted coconut oil (or butter) is used to add fat, flavor and moisture to the coffee cake. This ingredient is responsible for adding rich flavor and that delectable melt-in-your-mouth appeal.

 If you do dairy, I recommend using butter because it provides that iconic flavor that is just so enticing.

Sugar-Free Granulated Sweetener: In keeping the blueberry coffee cake low-carb, we use a sugar-free granulated sweetener. My three favorites are Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, Swerve and Truvia. 

If you don’t follow a low-carb diet, replace the sugar-free sweetener with granulated sugar or brown sugar.

Eggs: Used to fluff up the coffee cake and keep the cake a cohesive treat.

Almond Flour & Coconut Flour: The combination of almond flour and coconut flour generates a light yet dense cake that is grain-free and lower in carbohydrate than regular flour. 

Vanilla Extract: Adding warmth to any baked good, vanilla extract brings an underlying flavor that rounds out the whole experience. If you don’t have it on hand, you can skip it!

Baking Powder & Sea Salt: Baking powder helps leaven the cake and keeps it held together and the sea salt brings out all of the flavors of the cake so that you’re getting plenty of cinnamon and blueberry flavors.

For the Cinnamon Swirl: Almond flour, raw pecans, sugar-free brown sugar, coconut oil (or butter), ground cinnamon, sea salt

Let’s bake it up!

Keto Blueberry Coffee Cake:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9” x 9” baking pan with parchment paper.

In a bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and sea salt until well combined.

Stir together the dry ingredients in a bowl

Add the melted butter to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, along with the sugar-free granulated sweetener. Beat until well combined. Note: you can make the coffee cake in a mixing bowl by hand if you don’t have a stand mixer.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the mixer and beat on medium-high speed until well-combined and a creamy, custard-like mixture forms.

Beat the butter, eggs and sugar together

Add the flour mixture to the mixer and beat on medium-high until completely combined. Note: The cake batter will be very thick. This is normal!

Beat the cake batter until thick and creamy

Gently fold in the blueberries until they are well-distributed throughout the dough.

Stir together the ingredients for the streusel topping in a mixing bowl until well-combined.

Combine the ingredients for the streusel topping in a bowl

Transfer half of the cake batter to the parchment-lined baking pan and spread it into an even layer.

Spread half of the cake batter in the prepared cake pan

Sprinkle half of the streusel topping evenly over the cake batter.

Sprinkle half of the streusel topping over the first layer of cake batter

Repeat with the other half of the cake batter and the remaining topping.

Spread the other half of the cake batter and the remainder of the topping

Cover the cake pan with foil and bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 30 minutes (the foil keeps the topping from burning). Remove the coffee cake from the oven and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, or until the coffee cake feels firm when gently poked in the center.

Notes

*If you don’t follow a low carb ketogenic diet, you can replace the sugar-free sweetener with brown sugar (in both the cake and the topping).

**You can replace the coconut flour with 1 cup of additional almond flour if you’d like. Just note that this will increase the carb count ever so slightly.
