A slice of warm, moist, cinnamony coffee cake checks all the boxes; fluffy vanilla cake with ribbons of cinnamon sugar topped with a sweet crumble. Just … yum.
We took the traditional coffee cake recipe and turned it into a rich, decadent dessert that you can eat every single day.
Snickerdoodle Shakeology is the key to elevating coffee cake — an occasional treat — into a superfood powerhouse dessert.
This recipe also swaps sour cream for cottage cheese, which helps create that yummy, creamy moist cake, while chopped pecans add nutty crunch.
Indulge in a feel-good superfood dessert that tastes just like cinnamon-sugar cookies.
Snickerdoodle Coffee Cake
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1½ cups / 130 g oat flour
- 3 scoops Snickerdoodle Shakeology
- ¼ cup / 35 g coconut sugar, divided use
- 1½ tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided use
- 2 cups / 450 g reduced-fat cottage cheese
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- ¼ cup / 20 g dry rolled oats
- 3 Tbsp. unsalted pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350° F (180 °C).
Lightly coat an 8 x 8-inch (20 x 20-cm) baking dish with spray; set aside.
Add flour, Shakeology, 2 Tbsp. sugar, baking powder, and 1 tsp. cinnamon to a medium mixing bowl; stir to combine.
Add cottage cheese, eggs, and extract to a blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
Pour cheese mixture into flour mixture; mix until a thick batter forms.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish; use a spatula to spread evenly into corners.
Add oats, pecans, remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar, and remaining 1 tsp. cinnamon to a small mixing bowl; stir to combine. Sprinkle evenly over batter.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice into 6 equal pieces.
Refrigerate leftover coffee cake in an airtight container for up to four days or freeze for up to 1 month. Heat gently before serving, if desired.
