Paleo Plum Coffee Cake

It's plum season! We just harvested our plums from our backyard tree and whipped up this delicious plum coffee cake! Gluten-free and sweetened with coconut sugar it's a healthy spin on a traditional coffee cake. The perfect way to utilize all the plums we have! You could easily make this recipe with peaches, nectarines, or any other type of stone fruit. In fact, it would be great with blackberries or even apples!
