Fig Walnut Coffee Cake {Giveaway!}

Fig Walnut Coffee Cake {Giveaway!}

Check it out - Giveaway inside!

There are really zero excuses for not making coffee cake for a Sunday morning treat.  None. 

Especially when you consider that this version of my delectable Fig-Walnut Coffee Cake is pretty dang good for you.  With all the extra protein, top-notch ingredients, and its superhero-like power to work with most dietary needs, you basically just have to make it.

You’ve been using your willpower all week long, right?  Avoiding the doughnuts at work or the cookies your kids eat at home and making sure you eat your veggies and drinking water instead of something else – of course you could be all will-powered out by now.  But if you have to give in, you don’t also have to feel guilty about it!

That’s why I put together this cake recipe.  So you could have it, and eat it, too!

Flourless Lemon-Orange Coffee Cake

Flourless Lemon-Orange Coffee Cake

I have a cat and a dog.  They're adorable.  Furballs that poop and shed, but adorable and loveable nonetheless.

That's as close as I have gotten to motherhood, and from what I understand, there is a lot more involved in parenting than making sure that your "baby" gets outside and has plenty of belly rubs.

You probably know where I'm going with this.  It's Mother's Day this coming Sunday, and it's always the least I can do just to acknowledge that I know nothing of the trials my wonderful mom went through for me, and to say THANK YOU, ever so much for going through them.  I don't even deserve any of it, but she did it all out of wonderful, motherly love.

My mom taught me how to be a kind person, how to cook, and how to not also eat the mud pies I made as a toddler.  I'm so glad I make better things than mud pies now.

Hey there sweet thang.

How you doin'?

Oh - HI!

I was just talking to this scrumptious little morsel - I mean... thinking about maybe having another slice of coffee cake?  

Didn't mean to get all PG-13 about it but... dang.  I try to limit myself on treats - healthy ones included  - but if there was ever a coffee cake to have another slice of, it would be this baby here.
