Grain-free coffee cake

Oh breakfast and brunch how I love thee! Want to spice things up? Try this grain-free, refined sugar-free and low carb goodness. Grains tend to mess with me but I love to bake. That is why I like coming up with new ways to make delish healthy treats. I brought this to a brunch and no one even new it was healthy! Give it a try, you won’t regret it.
