Streusel Coffee Cake "Healthified"


I found the original recipe for this coffee cake in a Betty Crocker Simple Healthy Meals magazine. I changed a few of the ingredients to make it my own. The kids couldn't get enough of this yummy treat.

Streusel
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 T canola oil
(original recipe also included 1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted)

Coffee Cake
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 T brown sugar
1/2 cup Organic Agave Nectar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 egg white
3/4 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bottom of a 9" square pan with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix streusel ingredients with fork until crumbly; set aside

2. In large bowl, mix remaining dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients mix then add to dry ingredients until well blended.

3. Spoon half of the batter in pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the streusel evenly over batter. Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls over streusel.

4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool about 1 hour. Serve warm.
