Just because you’re following a healthier diet plan like the paleo diet doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your sweet tooth from time to time. Take it from somebody who has a huge sweet tooth. It’s definitely possible to enjoy some truly decadent sweets while keeping things 100% paleo. Don’t believe me? Then you simply must try this coffee cake banana bread with a crumble top. The banana bread is just sweet enough that I no longer have to put sugar in my coffee. But the real star of this recipe is the homemade crumble top. It’s made with a great mix of coconut sugar, almond flour, pecans, coconut oil and cinnamon. I could eat that topping alone, to be perfectly honest. It’s pretty spectacular.
