Paleo Apple Spice Coffee Cake

26 May

Happy Memorial Day!   I hope everyone’s long weekend is going awesome.  Speaking of awesomeness, I’m happy to announce that today’s post is brought to you by Jess from Nummy for My Tummy!  If you haven’t already visited her site, you’re in for a treat.  Jess has a lot of delicious Paleo and Gluten free recipes to drool over!

So here’s the awesome guest post:

Let me start this off by informing you this was made for my 21 Day Sugar Detox, so this isn’t your typical sugary coffee cake. Now, let’s get on with it

For many, Mothers Day means 1 day of sweets or some other treat, but for me it means my birthday is days away.  This year is slightly different from the rest as I’ve decided to partake in another round of the 21 Day Sugar Detox.  The detox happens during Mothers Day, my birthday and ends just after Memorial Day weekend. UGH!  In preparation I started toying around with making some sort of dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth and came up with this Apple Spice Coffee Cake.
