21 delicious keto coffee cake recipes. Brew yourself a pot of coffee and dig in!
I love coffee cake and I am not afraid to admit it. I mean, think about it. Coffee cake basically gives you permission to start your day with a slice of CAKE. How can that be bad?
And if it’s keto coffee cake, then all the better!
Does coffee cake contain coffee?
I think most of us who grew up in North America understand the term coffee cake to be a cake that is served with coffee. It’s often served as part of a nice brunch or as an afternoon snack.
But I have an international readership and I have had a few readers over the years who question whether there is an ingredient missing in my keto coffee cake. It’s an understandable mistake, of course. One of those cultural misunderstandings that happen when an expression is translated literally.
So let’s clear it up here and now. I am sure there are coffee cakes out there that actually contain coffee, but most do not. They are meant to be eaten with coffee, and there are any number of delicious variations.
Delicious keto coffee cake!
I have made any number of keto coffee cakes myself. I enjoy the fact that coffee cakes aren’t as sweet, and that I can enjoy a slice for breakfast… or dessert!
So I gathered together my best coffee cake recipes and a few delicious options from other great keto bloggers. Enjoy!

I love getting Keto recipes in my inbox from you, but your pages have gotten so popular and thus so filled up with ads, it’s annoying! It has become a chore to get to the recipes vs enjoyable. No offense intended, just feedback from a fan.
The good news? It’s another reason to buy your book.
Hi Elizabeth… it should not be a chore at all, considering that there is a “Jump to Recipe” button at the top of each post…

The ads cover it when you “jump to recipe” too. I love your recipes too!!
They don’t for me! I think it’s something with your browser – tell me what you’re on and whether it’s mobile or desktop and I will have my ad network look into it. But I have zero trouble on safari, either mobile or desktop.
You are such an amazing chef! I love how well you break down recipes and explain why things work the way they do. I always learn something that makes me a better cook from your recipes. Thank you!
I love coffee/crumb cakes! (fyi: the New York Crumb Cake recipe is one of the reasons I bought your latest cookbook!) I made a recipe from one of the bloggers you listed and was very pleasantly surprised with the texture and how it compared to traditional cake. Apparently the “secret ingredient” is oat fiber. I am curious why you don’t use this in any of your cake/muffin recipes? As you only touch on oat fiber slightly in your cookbook, I’d be interested to know if there is a reason you’re not comfortable with this ingredient before I continue baking with it. And thanks for this great recipe roundup!
I am not comfortable with it because 1. it tastes like cardboard and 2. I don’t know how truly low carb it is. Yes, so it’s mostly fibre but many of us count total carbs and fiber can be misleading as some of it may be absorbed by the blood stream. In small quantities, I think it’s okay but not really a fan compared to other flours.
Thanks for the quick response. I will certainly keep that in mind if I come across another recipe with this ingredient.

If you’re talking about the top photo in the post, it’s the pumpkin crumb cake.
