You see that sexy ass Blueberry Almond Coffee Cake? Not only is it gluten-free, but it left my kitchen smelling absolutely divine this week. I baked it for a few clients along with some of my other treats. If you live in the Los Angeles/Long Beach area, you can now place your order with me directly by following my Instagram page @bbakes4u <-- Check it out!
Now, here's the scoop..
For the batter, you'll need:
1/2 cup sour cream
1 stick of softened butter
4 tbsp of raw honey
2 1/4 cup almond flour
2 1/2 top baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup almond milk (eyeball it so texture isn't too runny; it should be nice & smooth)
For the crust topping, you'll need:
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp cold butter pieces
1/3 cup brown sugar (or maple syrup)
2 tbsp oat flour (or flour of choice)
1 cup of blueberries
Mix these ingredients with your fork until thick (or crumbly if using cold butter).
Adjust measurements as desired.
Once you pour the batter into your pan - I used a 9 inch spring - smoothen it out, top it with blueberries and cover it with your cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45min - 1 hour. Keep an eye on it as it becomes golden brown and develops the shiny crust. You'll know it's ready when a toothpick comes out clean.
Of course, feel free to tweak this recipe or any others to your liking.
It's perfect for anyone looking for a gluten-free, low sugar option to fit their health needs.
It's so moist, crumbly and goes perfectly well with a cup of coffee or latte.
Voila! I hope you try it and enjoy.

Some families suffer in silence and believe their dysfunction to be so unique, no one outside of the unit would understand or relate. But we know that all families have "dysfunction" because there is no perfect model by the standards we were conditioned to believe - mom, dad, 2 kids, dog, school, TV.
Sometimes we have to actually mourn the loss of what we thought or were told it was supposed to be in order to be clear-minded enough to create the dynamic we truly desire. A lot of families, including mine, stay silent and stuck in patterns driven by fear, shame, guilt, blame, secrets and lies. They were once forms of survival and it worked.
These old systems cannot sustain the newness we want to experience now and moving forward. Just like in any relationship, there has to be roots in love, communication, honesty, compassion, accountability... How else do we expect to truly evolve?
We learn to let go of what no longer works and serves the unit by doing our OWN internal healing which will in turn affect the whole. It's hard work transforming old belief, examining within, identifying triggers and setting boundaries, making peace with the pain of the past...but it's all so worth it! I know I'm grateful for every breakthrough moment.
And while you're in the process of change, don't be afraid to reach out to a therapist or someone to help guide you towards a place of deeper understanding, greater health and happiness.
Hey! So, I recently discovered this guy, Kyle Cease, and his understanding of metaphysical concepts, transcendence to higher consciousness and healing is really profound. His delivery is transparent and effective, especially if you are a student or have interest in personal development and the like. Above is one of my favorite of his videos where he discusses the differences between a stagnant relationship and an expansive one. If this sort of thing is your thing, I highly recommend you subscribe to his channel for more content!
