Guiltless Blueberry Pecan Crumb Cake Recipe

There are some days when you just need cake for breakfast! And since a frosted cake for breakfast might be reserved only for birthdays ;), we found a way to give you cake that is totally acceptable for all the days when you want cake and it's not the day you were born! We present, Guiltless Blueberry Pecan Crumb Cake! Because when it's made with chia, flax, hemp, pumpkin, sunflower, poppy, sesame seeds, coconut oil, pecans, eggs and cinnamon, there is no guilt involved! 

This crumb cake has a moist, gooey, dense center, nice crisp crust on the outside, and a slightly sweet, rich, and buttery crumble topping. The blueberries are fresh, sweet and light. We made several versions of this cake before landing on the final product, so needless to say, we ran out of fresh blueberries by around cake 2 or 3. We then started using frozen blueberries, and they did awesome, too. So fresh or frozen will do well! You might just need to cook a few minutes longer with frozen blueberries. 

Happy Easter everyone!!
