Recipes Notes:

*may also sub melted and cooled butter. If using melted and cooled coconut oil, make sure the rest of your ingredients are room temperature so the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
**may also use softened butter.

note: I did “vegan” test this mix using flaxseed eggs and the cake did not hold together. I highly suggest using eggs here.

Store leftover coffee cake in airtight container, 3-4 days.
