Keto Coffee Cake Notes:

  1. The Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener can be swapped out for Swerve for the same variety. For example, Swerve Confectioners is the same as Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered, and Swerve Brown can be swapped for Lakanto Monkfruit Golden.
  2. You may use almond flour instead of coconut flour, but not at the same measurement as coconut flour is very absorbent, so you need more almond flour. ¼ cup coconut flour equals 1 cup almond flour. 
  3. The sugar alcohols from both the Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered and Lakanto Monkfruit Golden are not included in the nutritional information since most people subtract to calculate net carbs. 

HOW TO STORE THIS KETO CINNAMON COFFEE CAKE RECIPE

The best way to store this keto dessert is to store it in the fridge for later. Cover it with a lid and keep it cool. Then, when you’re ready to eat, remove it from the fridge and enjoy it. You can also freeze it by wrapping individual servings in saran wrap then place them in a freezer-safe container to prevent freezer burn.

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS LOW CARB COFFEE CAKE

When you first take the cake out of the oven, some of the butter from the streusel topping will be sitting on the top. Don’t worry, this is normal. The butter will seep down into the cake as the cake cools, making it even more amazing.

  1. Made this tonight. It’s cooling and it smells delicious! Please help me understand the sugar alcohols from both varieties of Monkfruit. I understand the concept of sugar alcohols not affecting carbs, but I when I scan the barcodes on Lakanto Powdered and Lakanto Golden (along with all the other ingredients), I end up with 23 net carbs per serving. What have I done wrong?

    1. You don’t include the sugar alcohols in the net carbs. They are subtracted because they do not impact blood sugars.

  2. 5 stars
    This was a delicious treat! Thank you! I made muffins and added a dollop of keto cream cheese icing.😁

  3. In the list of ingredients where you have 9 Tablespoons of butter, does this include the butter for the topping below where you have an additional 4 Tablespoons or are those 4 T taken from these 9?

  4. You have done it again, Kasey! I made this today and it is excellent. Came out perfectly and so pretty. The pecan topping is so good!! This is going to be perfect with my coffee in the mornings this week. Thank you so much.

    1. I’ve only made it as is so I’m not sure how the topping would work without but I think you could omit or use a different kind of nut.
