If you enjoy your cakes on the healthy side, or maybe sometimes you like a little cake for breakfast, this healthy coffee cake recipe could be just the thing for you.

Essentially a vanilla yogurt cake spiked with raspberries, this healthy coffee cake is made with spelt flour so it has a more rustic texture. And with options for making this cake sugar free, it could be the very thing to get you out of bed in the morning but not haunt you with guilt for the rest of the day.

And as you might expect from a baker who calls her blog, “Chocolate Covered Katie”, there is an option in the recipe to add some chocolate chips if you can’t abide the idea of cake without a little naughty edge.

The always delicious Chocolate Covered Katie shares this healthy coffee cake recipe.

    Looks lovely – but really not sure I could do cake for breakfast. Morning tea perhaps…
    (then again, maybe I’m missing out if I’m not eating cake first thing in the morning)
