    The last recipe before Thanksgiving is here!

    This Vegan Cinnamon Coffee Cake Loaf is my most recent sweet bread recipe over here and it is a total game changer you guys. It reminds me of an oatmeal crumb cake except it is plant-based and not filled with a ton of refined sugar or even regular flour.

    Cinnamon Coffee Cake finally has a healthy cousin now that actually tastes good and is made with simple and delicious ingredients!

    The best part about this loaf is how moist it cakes. Yes I know, gross! Moist has a bad rep but there are times that there just isn’t another word that can describe the loaf as accurately!

    I use oat flour in this Vegan Cinnamon Coffee Cake Loaf. Most people don’t realize that you can easily make your own oat flour at home! No need to buy it. I simply take oats and add them to my blender or food processor and blend for a couple of minutes until it is processed into a fine flour-like form.

    I used One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Rolled Oats to make the one in this recipe. One Degree Organic Foods is an amazing small family business with one big goal. They are all about sustainable farming and local foods. They bring us food straight from the farm to our kitchen. We can trace where every ingredient in every one of their products comes from with this awesome traceability technology using the code found on the package!

    They only source ingredients from organic farmers who use only plant-based methods and they have 100% traceability back to them. HOW COOL?!

    One Degree Organic Foods makes a variety of amazing products ranging from cereals to flour, breads, seeds and tortillas! I am partnering with them over the next year to bring you guys a variety of delicious recipes using their products. Everything is truly amazing and I am so honored to be collaborating with them!

    I use their Organic Sprouted Rolled Oats in this recipe. They sprout their gluten-free oats before to make it easier for us to digest. Plus sprouting grains and nuts also helps boast more nutrients from the product too!

    After you have a chance to bake this Vegan Cinnamon Coffee Cake Loaf, I have a few more dreamy loafs on the blog for you here.

    5. In a small bowl, add the topping ingredients and mix well
    6. Pour onto the loaf batter and evenly distribute
    7. Bake in oven for 45 minutes or so or until loaf is cooked through (I use a toothpick to see if it is cooked!)
    8. Let cool then enjoy!
    9. *Will stay good for 5 days or you can freeze for longer

    • Reply Rachel November 26, 2017 at 5:13 pm

      lol! most traditional coffee cakes actually don’t have coffee.. i think it is named coffee cafe because you drink with coffee??

    Do you have suggestions for substitutes to make this tree but free? It sounds great, but my tree but allergy might disagree! Would it work with regular milk and something in place if the almond flour?

    • Reply Morgann November 29, 2017 at 12:28 pm

      Tree *nut – obviously auto correct thought it was being funny 🙄🙄

    • Reply Rachel November 29, 2017 at 6:43 pm

      can you do coconut milk? any milk works! and sub more oat flour for almond or use gluten-free flour! it may be a little different but keep me posted. it should work. xoxo

        Coconut is a go! I will try it out and keep you posted!

    Hi! I would love to make this today but I am out of applesauce! Is there anything I can use instead? Thanks!

    • Reply Rachel November 29, 2017 at 6:42 pm

      hmm maybe banana? or canned pumpkin??

  • Reply Carolyn November 30, 2017 at 9:00 am

    Can you use packaged oat flour for the cake instead of grinding your own oats? If so, how much flour should you use since the amount in the recipe is for whole oats?

    • Reply Rachel November 30, 2017 at 3:55 pm

      yes! 1 and 3/4 cups oats = 1 and 3/4 cups oat flour

  • Reply Sasha November 30, 2017 at 10:39 am

    How many cups of flour should the 1 and 3/4 cup of oats make? If I’m just starting with flour and don’t need to grind the oats. Thanks!

    • Reply Rachel November 30, 2017 at 3:55 pm

      its the same 🙂 1 and 3/4 cups oats = 1 and 3/4 cups oat flour

    Hello can i sub maple syrup for the coconut sugar. If so whats is it the same amount? Can’t wait to try out this recipe!!

    • Reply Rachel January 14, 2018 at 9:00 pm

      I haven’t tried another sweetener but I’d sub 1:1. It may be a bit more liquid-y so perhaps add more oat flour then! LMK how it goes!
