Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

It’s Kami here ready and excited to share this light, fluffy, and crumbly apple coffee cake which I originally shared on the fabulous What’s Cooking with Ruthie.  I finally hid the coffee cake out of sight since I kept breaking off little pieces every few minutes until I engulfed over half of the dish on my own.  You’ve been warned.

My mom has some pretty bountiful apple trees, and I benefit greatly.  She brings me large boxes of apples freshly picked from her tree, and I go crazy in the kitchen.  Believe it or not, I keep the box in my cold garage and the apples last me almost a month.  Those juicy, crunchy apples are thrown into recipes like my Pumpkin Apple Bread and this very tasty coffee cake.

Since I can’t be the only mom who continues to sneak candy from my kid’s Halloween collection (will it ever run out?!?!?), I’m going to keep the sugar to a minimum here.  Actually, I kinda pride myself on sneaking health into recipes while keeping them tasty.  This is no exception.  Instead of butter, try coconut oil.  Instead of sugar, throw in some honey and applesauce.  Come check out more sneaky nutritious recipes.
