Friends, hi! Welcome to September everybody. I hope we all had a great Labor Day Weekend wherever you are!

Mind boggling to me that it is already September. These months are flying by. Ezra is growing like crazy and I’m over here trying to catch my breath and get ready for the busiest month of the year for us. Between travel, Jord’s birthday, Jewish holidays, anniversaries and a few other family birthdays – September is insanity.

But not to worry! I still have you covered in the recipe department. In fact this Banana Bread Crumb Cake is one of my absolute favorite recipes to date. Likely because it was a complete mistake and I didn’t think it was going to turn out edible whatsoever. The crumb topping looked weird when I baked it. I didn’t even pay attention to the ratios or bake time then once I slice it and ate some a couple hours later, I was shocked. And also hated myself for a quick minute because I didn’t write anything down. This led me to remaking it again (no complaints) and actually paying attention this time.

The best healthy banana bread crumb cake is waiting for you..

I use all vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free ingredients in this recipe. I promise it still tastes delicious and so flavorful. It is also refined sugar free so you won’t be in a sugar coma after like the traditional crumb cake. Not like there is anything wrong with that but if you want to eat cake everyday like I do, ya gotta find the healthier options ya know?!

I use two of my beloved Garden of Life products here: organic flaxseed and organic extra virgin coconut oil. If you don’t have these in stock yet for baking and cooking – you are missing out friends. They are staples over here and a must have for majority of my baking recipes!

I hope you guys love this recipe as much as I do. It is truly a delicious breakfast, snack, dessert, anything you want it to be.

  1. Yum! I love your chocolate crumb bars so I know I’ll love this bread, too! Just a question, what’s your favorite vanilla extract? I go through it so fast and am wondering if there’s a better option you like.

    1. I need to know what I’m doing wrong! I’ve made this recipe twice now following it exactly how it’s written and both times it came out insanely dense and tough. I’m not new to baking by any means (ran a catering business out of my home before I had kids) so this is driving me crazy. I’m obsessed with banana bread and ESPECIALLY banana bread with streusal, so I want this to work SO BAAAD! What could I be doing wrong?!

  2. I used about 3.5 T of coconut oil for the crumb topping, but I was not able to get huge crumbs like yours! Did you use the full 4 T (or maybe more?). Otherwise, this is delicious! Definitely needs the crumble to make the bread sufficiently sweet, since there’s no added sugar in the batter (which I love!). Thanks!
