Paleo Crumb Cake with fresh cut strawberries and blueberries

This Paleo Crumb Cake recipe came from Patti A, a customer of our Honey House. We are fortunate to get to know our customers and share stories.

The Paleo diet is one that encourages followers to turn back time to the time of the cave-man. I wrote about my feelings on this diet in general in our Paleo Pumpkin Muffins recipe. I am not a big follower of this diet, but to the extent that it is gluten-free and process sugar-free, I personally see results in my process when I take the white out of my diet.

Pattie has Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and has found the Gluten-Free Paleo diet to be very helpful for her health condition.

Adapting this Paleo Crumb Cake

Our recipes are designed to be inspirational. That’s the way we see it. Don’t make this Paleo Crumb Cake Recipe exactly the way our recipe shows. Get creative. Experiment. Try something different. Here are some ideas in case you need a little boost with adapting this recipe:

  • Add some blueberries or a combination of your favorite berries to the batter to moisten it up a bit.
  • Can you imagine a teaspoon of dried lavender added to the batter? That would be so good!
  • Sprinkle 1 tsp. ground cinnamon into the batter.
  • Why not serve with a little honey drizzle?

Learn more about the Paleo Diet and decide if it’s a good thing for you. In theory:

The paleo diet can improve your health by eliminating high-fat and processed foods that have little nutritional value and too many calories. This plan emphasizes loading up on fruits and vegetables that are bursting with healthy vitamins, minerals, and fiber, which fills you up faster so you eat less, helping curb weight gain. You’ll lose weight because any time you restrict entire food groups, your calorie intake tends to be lower, Sandon says.
