Keto coffee cakes are the ideal baked treat to pair with your cup of keto coffee or hot chocolate. This moist, buttery cake is dairy-free and low carb! Enjoy it guilt free!

This sugar-free coffee cake is topped with a brown sugar substitute and unsalted butter for an irresistibly sweet crumb topping. Additionally, Besti Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend provides the icing for an ultra smooth finish.

Almond Flour

Almond flour makes an excellent substitution for traditional flour in keto baking recipes due to its low carbohydrates and high unsaturated fat content.

It can be used for a range of baked goods like cakes, cookies and muffins. Furthermore, it’s an ideal option for people with diabetes or insulin resistance since it doesn’t cause an abrupt spike in blood sugar levels.

It’s also a good source of vitamins E and magnesium. Studies have linked vitamin E to improved cardiovascular health and reduced inflammation, while magnesium appears to promote improved insulin sensitivity.

Coconut Flour

Coconut flour makes an excellent keto coffee cake ingredient due to its low carbohydrates, high protein content and abundant fiber content. Plus, since it lacks gluten, you can safely use it in gluten-free recipes without fear of cross contamination.

However, it’s essential to know that coconut flour absorbs liquid more readily than other keto flours do. Therefore, you will need more water in your recipe as well as eggs.

Almond and coconut flour combine for an irresistibly nutty flavor and crumbly texture in this coffee cake recipe, which you can even veganize by making some changes!


Eggs are a staple in keto breakfast recipes and provide protein, fat and low carbohydrates. Plus they’re versatile – you can prepare them in many ways such as scrambled eggs, omelets or egg cups!

Keto coffee cakes are an ideal breakfast for those on a keto diet, as they contain very few carbs and require minimal preparation. A great alternative to eggs in the morning, keto coffee cakes offer something new to try for breakfast!

For this recipe, you’ll need eggs, melted butter, granulated erythritol, baking powder and almond flour. After beating two whole eggs with their yolks, add melted butter, vanilla extract and apple cider vinegar. Finally, blend in granulated erythritol, almond flour and baking powder into the egg mixture until evenly distributed.


Keto coffee cakes are an ideal dessert to pair with a cup of coffee. Not only are they easy to make, but each slice only contains 3 grams of net carbs!

Butter is an essential element in keto coffee cake recipes, as it adds moisture and helps the cake stay moist. You can use any type of butter, but be sure to soften it beforehand.

You can substitute the butter in this recipe with avocado oil for a healthier alternative that still provides plenty of carbohydrates.


If you are on a low carb or keto diet, it can be challenging to find sweeteners that are safe for you. This is especially true if you have never tried using keto sweetener before.

Thankfully, there are many keto-friendly sweeteners that taste just like sugar. These include allulose, stevia, monk fruit and erythritol.

Swerve is my go-to sugar substitute because it lacks the bitter aftertaste typical of other sugar substitutes and doesn’t clump up during baking.

I also enjoy adding cinnamon crumble on top for an added layer of sweetness and texture. It’s super simple to make, making it the perfect addition to my keto coffee cake!
