Pumpkin Crumb Cake
(This post does include affiliate links.)
This cake is my version of the Pumpkin Cake that has the yellow cake mix as the base.
Growing up, we would make this every Thanksgiving.
It was a big favorite in our household.
But, of course, it is LOADED with sugar so not the greatest FIT in my Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle.
My 16 year old daughter and I decided we needed a non-sugary version of this in our life.
AND it had to be dairy-free (she can have butter not no dairy products).
If you want to keep this completely dairy free replace the butter with the filtered coconut oil.
This is a recipe I feel good about serving my kids and husband.
It won’t cause those crazy sugar highs and then those sugar crashes.
For this, I used almond flour. I am really used to using almond flour.
If you don’t want to use almond flour you could try the THM Baking Blend.
I have NOT tried it but if you do try it use about 1 cup less.
So instead of 2 1/2 cups of almond flour, you would want to use 1 1/2 cup of THM Baking Blend.
This is just a suggestion… I have not tried. If you try it, please leave me a comment.
You can make a dairy-free topping for this by using this Coconut Cream recipe from Nana’s Little Kitchen.
Also, this recipe is a THM S or Low Carb recipe because it uses lots of good fats.
I try not to overdo this so I can easily get 12/15 squares out of this dessert.
Refridgerate after it cools and keep covered with plastic wrap or a top.
