My friend Mary has an egg allergy and I probably do too. I wanted to make a breakfast cake that was egg free but still tasty. Let me know what you think of it.

    This is brilliant. I found out I was allergic to eggs, both white and yolk and also follow paleo lifestyle and find it very challenging without eggs which I love. So thank you so much for these wonderful ideas as almost all paleo recipes include eggs especially for baked goods Awesome. I have ordered your book. ♥

    This coffee cake is AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. I even left out the baking powder and it was fine – maybe it would have risen more? It was perfect. My husband and I are on GAPS, but we still can’t have eggs or nuts, so this fit the bill. Thank you.

      It has very few carbs if you use the stevia. The only significant source of carbs is applesauce. It is about 20 carbs for 1 cup of sugar free applesauce.
