Banana Coconut Flour Coffee Cake

Hey! Hope your week is off to a fantastic start. I am doing pretty well over here.  Monday was a day of good eating.  I met a friend at Chipotle for lunch, I had been craving a steak burrito bowl and it was everything I was hoping it would be.

Later, I had a dinner date with a friend for poke bowls.  I almost always pack my lunch and rarely go out to dinner these days, so it was a lot of fun to have two tasty meals out with friends in one day.

Today, I thought I would stay on the tasty trend and share my banana coconut flour coffee cake with you guys.  I have actually made this a couple of times recently, to make sure I had gotten the texture just right before sharing.  The end result is a tasty, not too sweet banana coffee cake.  That makes for an awesome treat to enjoy with coffee. It also is great with an egg on the side for breakfast (I had this as a to go breakfast with hardboiled eggs three days in a row).

    1. I don’t think it tastes like coconut at all. I asked the hubs, who is more sensitive to underlying flavors then I am, and he couldn’t taste the coconut either. Coconut flour does give it a slightly different texture then normal flour does though.
