Peanut Butter Crumble Coffee Cake

Peanut Butter Crumble Coffee Cake Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Today is a very important day. It’s national coffee cake day! Okay, there are probably more reasons why it’s an important day.

However, given my love for breakfast food (I promise we eat more than just breakfast food at our house, it just seems that way with all the breakfast related recipes I share!), I obviously couldn’t let this day pass without celebrating! And what better way than to celebrate with peanut butter crumble coffee cake?!

The base of this coffee cake is a classic vanilla, but it’s anything but plain! Instead of the traditional cinnamon filling, this filling has the addition of brown sugar and peanut butter.

If you’ve ever had cinnamon peanut butter before, it tastes like that. Only better. Because it also has two kinds of sugar and butter added in!

And because all good coffee cakes need a crumb/streusel topping, this coffee cake is no different and has a generous layer! Peanut butter and oats combine with a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips to give you that favorite peanut butter chocolate combination.

This coffee cake is sure to be a hit with everyone, that is, if you share!
