What ingredients will I need to make this pumpkin coffee cake?

You’ll need just a couple simple ingredients to make this recipe. They are:

  • oat flour

  • salt

  • baking soda & baking powder
  • coconut sugar (or other sugar, see below)
  • coconut oil (or other oil, see below)

How do I make homemade oat flour?

To make homemade oat flour simply blend quick, old fashioned, or rolled oats in a high speed blender (or process them in a food processor). Blend/process until a flour consistency is reached. Check out this video if you want to see how I make my own oat flour!

Can I make the recipe coconut free?

If you don’t want to use coconut in this recipe, you can substitute the coconut sugar with brown sugar, raw cane sugar, or monk fruit. You can replace the coconut oil with vegan butter, olive oil, or another neutral oil and you can omit the coconut butter glaze. I haven’t tried any of these substitutions in this recipe, but they should work well!

Can I make a glaze without coconut butter?

Yes! If you don’t want to use coconut butter and pure maple syrup for a glaze, simply mix together some powdered sugar and water!

Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Streusel Crumb Topping

Servings 16
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


For the Coffee Cake

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten (flax or regular eggs)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups pumpkin purée

For the Streusel

  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the Optional Glaze

  • 2 tbsp coconut butter, warmed
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
  • While the oven is heating up, add the dry ingredients for the coffee cake to a large mixing bowl and whisk together. Then add all of the wet ingredients, one at a time. Once the wet ingredients are added, whisk everything together until the batter is smooth and well combined. Set aside.
  • Next, make the streusel. Add all of the streusel ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Next add half of the coffee cake batter to the bottom of the lined cake pan. Smooth it out and top with half of the streusel. Spread out the streusel and top with the remaining coffee cake batter. Smooth out the batter and top with the remaining streusel.
  • Place the coffee cake in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes in the pan. After 30 minutes, move the coffee cake to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
  • While the coffee cake is cooling, make the optional glaze. Mix the warmed coconut butter and maple syrup in a small bowl until smooth. Add a little bit of water to thin it out if needed. Once the coffee cake has cooled, drizzle the glaze, slice, and serve!
