For the coffee cake:

For the topping:


  • Preheat the oven to 350*F. Line a 8 or 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together mashed banana, eggs, carrots, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and almond extract.
  • In small bowl, whisk together coconut flour, flax meal, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until completely combined.
  • Pour into prepared baking dish and put in the preheated oven.
  • Meanwhile, make the topping. Stir together oats, coconut flakes, coconut oil, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Add in pecans.
  • Bake the coffee cake for 10 minutes and then sprinkle with the oat mixture until covered. Pat into the coffee cake with a spatula so it sticks. 
  • Bake another 18 to 22 minutes until cooked -- a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean. 
  • Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before taking out of pan. Slice and enjoy!
  • Keep in the refrigerator. I think it is best when cold or at room temperature.
