Whole Wheat Coffee Cake
Growing up, I loved coffee cake. My Busia (Grandma in Polish) would bring it over often when she would come visit us. It was from a store with drizzled on icing and we all loved it. I'm always attempting to make recipes healthier and knew it was time to try to make my own healthier coffee cake at home. It turned out so amazing and I am excited to share this whole wheat cinnamon streusel coffee cake with you today.

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake
You know those afternoons when you need a little treat? Or weekend brunch mornings when you need something sweet and delicious but a little bit healthier? This whole wheat coffee cake satisfies both of those needs. I used less sugar than you normally would for coffee cake, used white whole-wheat flour for more fiber and nutrients. You won't be able to taste that this coffee cake is any healthier because it tastes just so delicious! That cinnamon streusel topping is a can't-miss component.

My favorite thing to do is enjoy a piece (or let's be honest, two) with my husband and kiddos on Saturday morning with a cup of hot Bigelow Constant Comment tea. It is perfectly cozy and warming and makes me so happy. This tea is full of flavor, antioxidants and is a great no-sugar beverage to pair with the coffee cake. Feel free to make a double batch of this coffee cake and freeze it for another time. Double the coffee cake with half of the effort! That's my kind of snack.

We think that a hot cup of tea during the cold months is the ultimate coziness. We curl up with a cup of hot tea, a blanket, cozy clothes and watch one of our shows together. We love it and always "tea proudly"! Bigelow will be sharing brand new ingredient focused videos this month for these teas: Earl Grey, Green Tea, Green Tea with Lemon, Cozy Chamomile and Constant Comment. They will also be having weekly giveaways.

Also, did you know that it is National Hot Tea Month? My husband and I drink decaf tea almost every night together and our brand of choice is Bigelow. My tea of choice in the evening is Bigelow French Vanilla Decaf or Bigelow Perfect Peach. My husband loves the Bigelow Peppermint Bark. During the day, I love Bigelow Constant Comment, Green Tea with Mango or Vanilla Caramel Black Tea. There are so many good ones and I could recommend 10 more but these are my all-time favorites. I love that Bigelow is affordable, easy to find in stores and has many flavors available.
