For the Cake:


- 1 ¼ cup blanched almond flour (140 grams)

- 4 Tablespoons coconut flour (28 grams)

- 2 teaspoons baking powder

- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

- ½ cup sugar-free substitute (baking stevia, monk fruit, or xylitol) or raw sugar – See notes

- ¼ cup softened unsalted butter or naturally refined coconut oil (solidified)

- 2 large eggs

- 4–5 ounces almond milk (more as needed)

- 1 ½ cup blueberries (fresh works best)


For the Topping:


- 2 –3 Tablespoons unsalted butter or plant-based soy-free butter, chilled and sliced*

- ⅓ cup fine blanched almond flour

- 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Now, let's break down the process of baking our scrumptious Almond-Blueberry Buckle:

1. Get your oven warming up to 350F and ready your baking pan with a coating of either parchment paper or grease. In one bowl, blend your dry components: standard flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

2. In a separate bowl, whip up butter (or oil) with sugar to create a smooth blend, then introduce the eggs and almond milk. Keep stirring until you achieve a fluffy texture.

3. Gradually incorporate the dry mix into this mixture. If it's too thick, splash in more almond milk.

4. Fold fresh blueberries into the batter and pour this into your baking dish. For the crumbly topping, combine coconut sugar, almond flour, cinnamon, and cold butter in a separate bowl. Spread this topping over your batter.

5.Bake until golden around the edges, about 30-35 minutes. Allow it to cool before serving.
