Applesauce Crumb Cake | gluten, egg, dairy & refined sugar-free | RaiasRecipes.comBack in the day when I only had 2 kids, coffee cake was something I made quite often. Now that I’ve got four kids (and one more on the way) a 9×13 inch coffee cake doesn’t really stretch as far…

So my beloved coffee cakes have been relegated to a “special treat” for my growing family. Not because they’re inferior in anyway, but because there are more economical ways to feed 6 people. 😉

Applesauce Crumb Cake | gluten, egg, dairy & refined sugar-free | RaiasRecipes.comThis Applesauce Crumb Cake makes a good, healthy treat on those mornings when oatmeal or fried eggs need a little boost. It’s not hard to make, and the kids gobble it up. Though there isn’t much they don’t gobble up!

Applesauce Crumb Cake | gluten, egg, dairy & refined sugar-free | RaiasRecipes.comIt’s a pretty versatile little cake as well: I used a mix of brown rice flour and oat flour, but other options like sorghum would taste great as well. I also used eggs and butter, but flax egg substitute and coconut oil work, too!
