  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (like this)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder  (like this)


  • 2 cups almond flour (I use THIS super fine brand)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour (I use THIS brand)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup butter, ghee, or coconut oil – melted
  • 1 and 1/2 cups blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350’F.  Liberally grease an 10 inch cast iron skillet and set aside.
  2. Combine streusel ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, tapioca, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In another medium bowl, whisk together eggs, maple syrup, and melted fat of choice. Pour wet into dry and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Pour half of batter into greased skillet, spreading it to cover bottom.  Layer half of streusel mixture and half of the blueberries on top.  Pour on the rest of  batter and then layer remaining streusel and blueberries on top.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and set in center. Enjoy!
