So what would you say if I said I put these two things together? 🙂
YUM-O!!! I mean, I’m just hoping…

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Ingredients
What kind of magical ingredients could make pumpkin coffee cake healthy, vegan, and gluten free? Let’s see, shall we? Psst… readers have reported that this coffee cake recipe is very adaptable! 😉
How to Make Gluten Free Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
Make the streusel. Add all streusel ingredients to a small bowl and stir until well incorporated. If you’d like to try a butter-based streusel, try this Streusel Topping.
Make the pumpkin cake. Add all wet ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together until well incorporated: pumpkin, coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients to the large bowl: oat flour, almond meal, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt. Whisk until fully incorporated and no flour patches remain.
Pour pumpkin cake batter evenly into the prepared pan. Using a rubber spatula, smooth coffee cake batter into an even layer.
Now, grab the streusel you made earlier, then sprinkle streusel over batter.
Bake coffee cake for about 35 minutes.
Cool, slice and enjoy the best vegan gluten free pumpkin coffee cake ever!

How to Serve Pumpkin Coffee Cake
With ice cream. Serve pumpkin coffee cake with your favorite vegan ice cream. I recommend vanilla ice cream. 😉
Warm and fresh, as is. No frills, no bevs, no ice cream. Serve pumpkin coffee cake as is and enjoy.
With a cup of hot coffee. Perhaps nothing goes better with coffee cake than… you guessed it, coffee! Or tea. 😉
Or altogether, now. Serve fresh out of the oven (after cooling for beautiful slicing of course), with a side of ice cream and a fresh cup of coffee for the best treat ever.
Recommended Tools for the Best Vegan Gluten Free Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Here are a few of my favorite pieces of kitchen equipment and ingredients to use when making this vegan pumpkin coffee cake.
- 4 Event Timer – Seriously one of my favorite kitchen tools EVER. This super cool timer helps you keep track of 4 different events at once! I love using it to keep track of bake time, cool time in pan, cool time on rack, and bake time for my second recipe.
- 8-inch Square Baking Pan – A truly wonderful pan that I’ve used hundreds of times, if not thousands.
- Unbleached Parchment Paper – I love how this parchment paper makes clean up a breeze. And it keeps the pumpkin coffee cake from sticking to the pan!
