What a delight for your guests to be arrested by the aroma of pumpkin spice when they enter your home. And how neat to be able to tell them that it’s NOT a fall candle they are smelling. But that it’s a keto pumpkin streusel coffee cake you’ve made just for them.
Keto Streusel Topping
In my book, a coffee cake is only as good as its streusel topping. If it doesn’t feature a hefty amount of streusel topping it’s just not a real coffee cake.
Is that snobbish of me? But I mean isn’t the streusel topping the best part of the coffee cake?
But what does streusel even mean? Well since you asked, let me explain. You see it refers to something just strewn together. Streusel topping just means something you can easily throw together on top of a cake.
Which is very fitting because this keto pumpkin coffee cake can be made easily and features a generous crumbly streusel “simple to make” topping. This, of course, is also the case with my other keto coffee cakes.

No Coffee In Coffee Cake
If you are wondering if I’ve added coffee to a keto pumpkin cake, fret not. There is NO coffee bean flavor in this recipe. In fact, there is no coffee in any of my keto coffee cakes.
Why? Because the name “coffee cake” just refers to the fact that it’s a cake that goes perfectly with a nice big cup of coffee. It’s not referring to the flavor of the cake.
The tradition of having a sweet cake that can be enjoyed with your morning coffee can be traced back to Germany in the 16thcentury. Looks like they came up with a brilliant idea that has lasted the test of time.
Not a coffee lover? No problem. This girl won’t take the slightest offense if you opt to have my keto pumpkin streusel coffee cake with your favorite cup of tea or All. By. Itself.

- Combine all your dry ingredients in a separate bowl before adding them to the wet ingredients. This way everything gets incorporated well.

Jesus and Keto Lifestyle
Before you think we’ve gone too far with the keto lifestyle, let me explain why we think you should consider combining it with the Christian faith.
As Christians Randy and discovered that in order to find true transformation in all areas of our lives, we needed to align our walk with our talk. And this included the foods we would use to nourish our bodies.
We could no longer believe God for healing but ignore our responsibility in taking care of the very place the Holy Spirit chooses to abide. To do so went against the integrity of our character.
In a bold and maybe even a bit controversial move in January of 2014, we decided to make our keto lifestyle a fast unto the Lord. What we learned has transformed our lives in ways we could have never imagined.
Today we are not only experiencing greater health, but our walk with Christ has also grown by leaps and bounds.
I encourage you to open your hearts and minds to the same possibility. Perhaps being in a state of ketosis isn’t just beneficial to your health goals, maybe when our bodies are running optimally we can hear his promptings more clearly.
You can read more here about our Jesus and Ketones lifestyle. Visit our about page to understand our personal journey and why we’ve made the decision to follow Jesus and combine it with the Keto lifestyle for greater transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
Note that once you click the link you will be prompted to answer a few questions that ensure that you understand what this group stands for.
It has become our life mission to share what we have learned. It’s our prayer that our testimony will help others find victory in their spirit, mind, and body.
