One of my kids commented that the above photo doesn’t do justice to the blueberry part of this cake. Actually my kids don’t speak that way at all. It was more along the lines of “you can’t see the blueberries.” So here’s take 2 of this Paleo blueberry cinnamon breakfast cake, so you don’t start feeling nervous about a potential blueberry shortage.
Plenty of blueberry and cinnamon goodness as the title implies. I totally didn’t make this with the thought that we’d have yet another no-school snow day, but that is exactly what happened so good timing. Or not, because it was so well received that I wound up making a second one on the day it actually snowed. Double trouble and delicious results both times = keeper.
Enough with the blueberries and enough with the snow. Hmm, not much to say here right now when you take those two things away from me. On snow days I play this game (only in my own head, I don’t tell the kids because that would jinx it) of how long can we last as a family without turning on the TV.
Have you noticed that once the TV is on for the day, it basically never turns off until the last person up goes to sleep? And that assumes that person doesn’t fall asleep while watching it. By the way, that person is never me. I literally cannot fall asleep if there is any light or noise around me, and since I’ve had a smart phone I don’t really watch TV at all. Not necessarily a good thing, I kind of miss getting into a show.
Back to the food now! You didn’t think I forgot about it did you? The pictures are staring me in the face as I type, and I know you want the recipe already 🙂
Blueberry Cinnamon Breakfast Cake - Nut Free
For The Cake Part
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup unrefined coconut palm sugar
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk from a can
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder*
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch salt
- 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
For The Cinnamon Topping
- 3 tbsp coconut oil solid and cold**
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9 inch baking dish or cake pan with coconut oil.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, coconut sugar, coconut milk, vanilla, and coconut oil and stir or blend with a hand blender until smooth.
In a medium bowl, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and pinch of salt
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and blend with a handheld blender until smooth. The batter will be somewhat thick but still pourable.
Fold the blueberries into the mixture. Pour entire mixture into prepared baking dish and use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl. Set aside,
For the topping, combine all topping ingredients in a bowl and blend together with a pastry blender or fork, until crumbly. Sprinkle the cinnamon topping over the unbaked cake.
Bake for 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the center is just set. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving. As it cools to room temperature, the topping will become more "crumbly." Enjoy!
*Tapioca flour will work as well
**You can refrigerate beforehand
Good stuff, I’m telling you. Go enjoy your weekend now!

I would seriously die if we had as many snow days as you! ARGH! I wouldn’t be making bets about how long the TV stays off–I’d be making bets as to what time I could last before pouring myself a glass of wine! 😛
I hear you, snow days know no “appropriate” time for that 🙂

Looks so good! I have had enough snow and the snow days! School is opened today but delayed two hours…And I always fell asleep with the tv on and still do lol
Luckily we had no delay but the roads were still a mess, and it’s freezing! I think next week looks nice though, now for all the melting 🙂

This looks ahhhhmazing!!!! Cake for breakfast!? I am in!!! What a delicious looking treat! Pinning 🙂
Thanks! The cinnamon crumb topping was pretty awesome 🙂
Skinny Fitalicious says
Haha “the cake” love that ingredient! I Will often leave the TV on for noise factor and never watching it. A few months ago, I started turning iTunes on instead via Apple TV. I’d rather listen to music anyway. Now the TV only comes on at night. Yummy recipe!
Just how my mind works “the cake” 🙂 “The topping” was the bomb though 🙂
Nicole @ Runs & WODs says
Delicious!!! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, hope you try!
I was about to be seriously impressed by your kids’ vocab. Like seriously.
Love it 🙂 That would be funny!
Lisa @ Running Out Of Wine says
If only I had coconut milk and blueberries I would be making this right now! Oh well, I’ll plan on it for next week. Have a great weekend!
It’s a good one, the topping is awesome, just like a coffee cake 🙂 Enjoy the weekend!
Looks yummy! Would almond flour work too? I realize that wouldn’t make it “nut free” sometimes too much coconut stuff in one recipe is a bit much for me and I find a taste more coconut than anything else.
Awh, the TV, sometimes I just get sick of all the noise. My husband is deaf in one ear (has been since birth), we have three kids, there is a multiple TVs in the house, I work around people all day, and I just sometimes feel like I am being crushed by noise. There are a few shows I like, but I normally am NOT the one to ever turn on the TV. I try to keep things quiet as long as possible:)
Almond flour would have a different measurement, you’d need more, but I’m sure it could be done! Definitely sounds like you have more than enough noise in your life 🙂

Confession: I can’t even remember the last time I turned on my TV. I hope it still works 😆 I’ll watch it if I’m over at a friend’s place or with my family, but when I’m alone? I’m usually on the blogging, working, or studying, and having the TV on is way too distracting for me.
I don’t need that “background” noise either, but then again with my family around they take care of all that noise. That’s probably why I stopped watching, I just don’t need any more noise! Have a great weekend 🙂
this looks so delicious! i’ve been in the baking mood lately – it’s barely cold here especially compared to what you’ve been experiencing – but still, any time the temps drop it makes me want to create sweet spice smells in the oven. so homey and comfy!
i’ve been craving something like this and then have designs to top it with something creamy like coconut cream or heavy cream. honestly i think i’m just craving cream. LOL.
happy friday Michele and congrats again (and a thousand times more!!!) on NYC!!!
Go for the cream! And thank you again! Bake something delicious and have a great weekend 🙂

You are the best. THE CAKE.
I got blasted on facebook today for forgetting to add ‘muffins’ in the ingredient list.
Ha! Just trying to be really detailed of course, wouldn’t want anyone getting confused 😉
Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes says
