    I am on a serious crumb cake kick right now. I was recently asking my parents and Jord if they had to pick one epic dessert to eat with no regrets, what would it be?

    For me personally it was a crumb cake of sorts. The epic kind with chunks of powdered sugar crumbs on top of a moist and thick cake. It was always a favorite of mine growing up and really anything crumb cake-related is the way to my weird.

    Now this Life Changing Healthy Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake has made my crumb cake obsessed self the happiest human ever. It is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and has just the right amount of sweetness to it. When I was testing this, I didn’t have much of a pan besides mixing everything into a bowl and hoping for the best. I got lucky with this recipe because the first try and it turned out so delicious.

    I spiced up the traditional crumb cake a bit by adding a chocolatey twist to it (shocker). I mix in some Enjoy Life Food’s Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips into the cake batter then sprinkle some on top of the cake and mix into the crumb topping. Chocolate overload? Perhaps. But it is the dreamiest addition to this recipe and now we really combined the two best things into one dessert: crumb cake + chocolate.

    Enjoy Life Foods makes the cutest mini chocolate chips. They’re semi-sweet, which I love for baking (and drizzling) and their baking chocolates are free of the top allergens and made with solid ingredients. You guys have been seeing a handful of their recipes on the blog the past few months like Healthier Gluten-free Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (two of the most popular recipes recently over here).

    Okay enough chatter about the crumb cake and chocolate. Time for you guys to try it for yourselves! I hope you love and obsess over this recipe as much as I do 🙂
