Coffee Cake Muffins 3 WM

Oh yes we did!  Coffee cake used to be a staple at our house… you know, in the hot mess days.   But once you give up grains, dairy and refined sugar the coffee cake goes out the window.

What if I told you you can make a delicious version at home without all that crap?

Now before everyone gets in a tizzy about calling this “paleo” I’ll repeat what I answered the commenters in my Chocolate Cupcakes post.  I’m not calling this “Paleo Coffee Cake” because I think our ancestors where hunting or gathering coffee cake at any given time but rather because for those of us who eat a paleo, primal, mostly nutrient dense diet (albeit with an 80/20 approach), searching for “grain free dairy free legume free refined sugar free crap free coffee cake” is just ridiculous, amiright?

Now that that bit of business is settled, on to the fun stuff…
