Looking for a low carb walnut coffee cake recipe but find most keto cakes to be too hard and too complicated? This delicious coffee cake recipe is perfect!
A lot of the low carb and keto-friendly baking recipes you see online are simply over-the-top — too elaborate, too involved, and just too much to eat. When I developed this low carb walnut coffee cake, I wanted to create a comfort-food-like snack cake recipe.
Not too much to eat.
Not overly sweet.
I knew it needed to be the kind of sweet treat I could enjoy with my morning coffee or something I could easily eat in the afternoon and still be hungry for dinner.
You’ll also note that this isn’t your run-of-the-mill keto diet recipe. I find so many low carb or keto-friendly recipes to be nothing more than a combo of low-carb flours and a keto sweetener. They lack the complexity of various ingredients and flavors that make desserts irresistible. That’s why this low-carb coffee cake recipe includes chopped apple in the streusel ingredients that make up its crumb topping.
Are Apples OK In Low Carb Baking?
If by “ok” do you mean can they be used and still keep the recipe low carb? Yes!
In the case of this recipe, only 1 apple is used for an entire recipe. In terms of its overall carb contribution, it’s minimal. Plus, what often makes apple desserts higher in carbs is the sugar used in them. This recipe opts for my favorite brown sugar substitute, Swerve brown.Print
