I hope you are all having a wonderful week? If not so much, than lets just be grateful it is just about the weekend.

We are having a perfectly splendid time down in Mexico. I am healing and feeling better and better each day I am down here- thank you so much for all of the well-wishes by the way, it’s so nice.

Banana Streusal Coffee Cake- Vegan and Gluten Free from HeatherChristo.com

I love that one of the best foods you can eat to combat shingles (high in Lysine) is avocado!! Yes to copious amounts of guacamole! I have literally been eating it at every single meal and in between. Also I have to tell you that the whales are out in full force on the tip of Baja and it has brought me great joy to literally spend hours watching them play and show off out in the Pacific.

If you join me tomorrow for Saturday Stuff I will tell you more about what is going on down here in Paradise! But for now, Lets talk breakfast. Like weekend breakfast.
Coffee Cake specifically.

Banana Streusal Coffee Cake- Vegan and Gluten Free from HeatherChristo.com

I mean, first of all, lets be clear, coffee cake is cake. I suppose it is slightly less sweet because we haven’t slathered it in sugar and butter filled frosting, but it is still soooo good all the same. I love the crumbly streusel topping and the optional, but wonderful addition of maple drizzle is really delicious. I hope you will give it a try and serve it up to lucky loved ones for breakfast, or a later afternoon snack on a drizzly February Saturday perhaps? Either way, enjoy!
