  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp dairy free vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • cup coconut sugar


  • ½ cup almond flour
  • cup date sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp raw almond butter

Optional Glaze


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) in a medium bowl.
  • Combine wet ingredients (almond milk, dairy free yogurt, vinegar, coconut sugar, applesauce, and vanilla extract). Whisk together until sugar is dissolved.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir until combined. Batter will be thin. Pour into 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper.
  • In a separate bowl combine almond flour, ground dates, salt and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Add applesauce and almond butter. Incorporate with hands until you get a crumbly consistency.
  • Evenly spread streusel overtop. Bake for 35 minutes at 350 F.
  • Allow to cool. Carefully lift from ban and cut into 9 pieces. Enjoy!


  1. You can use white flour and it will still be vegan but not whole food plant-based.
  2. Use apple cider or white vinegar. I prefer apple cider vinegar.
  3. To make this recipe gluten-free sub whole wheat flour for 1:1 gluten-free flour.
  4. I use enough parchment paper on either side so that I can easily lift the coffee cake out of the pan to transfer it onto a serving tray.
