cranberry and walnut pumpkin coffee cake

wild oats marketplace recently put out a new fall magazine featuring articles and recipes and info on healthy living and eating. its the fall issue so the pumpkin has begun! around here pumpkin is not just for holidays...packed with flavor, vitamins and veggie goodness we consume it many ways all year long.
their featured recipe is a pumpkin coffee cake. of course, i wouldn't be me without changing it up a lot. there was too much sugar in the original recipe and since its a breakfast treat i felt like it needed the yummy addition of fruits and nuts...oh, and a handful of flaxseed to boost up the nutritional value. all in is a lovely morning treat!


2 cups whole wheat organic pastry flour
1 1/2 cups organic oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 tbl aluminum-free baking powder

1 cup chopped organic walnuts

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup oats
