  • 8x8 pan


For the Cinnamon Pecan Crumble

  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Cake

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8" or 9" square baking dish with parchment paper or non-stick baking spray.
  • In a small bowl prepare cinnamon pecan crumble. Mix together chopped pecans, almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut brown sugar and cinnamon. Once fully combined, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, prepare cake. Cream together coconut oil, Greek yogurt, coconut sugar, coconut brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Set aside once fully mixed.
  • In another large bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Once fully combined, add to wet ingredients. Mix together until incorporated.
  • Spoon ½ of the cake batter into the prepared baking dish. If needed, spread batter evenly throughout the pan with a spoon (doesn’t have to be perfectly even). Sprinkle ½ of the cinnamon pecan crumble over the batter. Spoon remaining batter on top. To finish it off, top with remaining cinnamon pecan crumble.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes.
