I do love the cinnamon and sugariness of coffee cake but I hate that the crumbly and gooey stuff are the best part. When that is gone and eaten, what is left?

I tried a gluten free Soozys coffee cake muffin the other day, which inspired me to make my own! It didnt have the crumbly and gooey stuff . Couldn’t find a recipe without the gooey stuff so Ta-da, here it is! We made 2 different sizes: mini and regular!

My son loves to peel off the paper from the mini muffin and enjoy it with his cup of flaxmilk.
