Gluten Free Monkey Bread

Breakfast is the most important meals of the day. Or at least that is what they say. I am not a huge breakfast fan, but if I am going to eat breakfast, then I am certainly going to make a production out of it!

Have you ever had monkey bread? What about gluten free monkey bread? I honestly never thought I’d be able to completely duplicate the deliciousness of monkey bread in gluten free form. I am happy to report that this is exactly what I was able to do after some trial and error.

Is Monkey Bread Breakfast?

Gluten Free Monkey Bread can be eaten whenever you like! Having said that, traditionally (at least in my house) it was a breakfast treat. I remember my mom making it when I was a kid and being so excited for all the ooey gooey yumminess that I got to indulge in first thing in the morning.

I personally like to eat it warm for breakfast and then just grab pieces here and there throughout the day!

Can You Use a Gluten Free Canned Biscuit?

You sure can. I am honestly not aware of any, but I hear that there are some canned biscuits that are gluten free. So if you get your hands on one, then you can certianly use the dough from that as a shortcut. That is how the regular, non gluten free versions of monkey bread are made.

How to Make Gluten Free Monkey Bread

Put all of the ingredients for the dough into a mixing bowl, and blend on high until a firm dough has formed.

Form the dough into 1 inch balls.

Mix together ⅓ cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.

Roll each of the dough balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture, and place them in layers in a well greased bundt pan.

Let the mixture rise for 30 minutes. It may not rise a lot, do not worry, it will raise more in the oven.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Add 6 tbsp butter, ⅔ cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp honey and 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream to a saucepan over medium heat until the mixture is boiling, frothy and thickened.

Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and pecans.

Bake for 35 minutes. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before turning out onto a plate. Cool for 30 minutes before serving.

How to Store Gluten Free Monkey Bread

Storing monkey bread is super simple. I usually just put toothpicks in the top and wrap it with some kind of wrap. If there is not much left, then I might transfer it to an airtight container.

Either way, it needs to end up in the fridge if it is not going to be eaten right away. You can warm it up or eat it cold, both are delicious.

What to Serve With Gluten Free Monkey Bread

Monkey bread is a meal in itself. I will be honest and say that sometimes when I have a sweet breakfast, I do enjoy having something savory to go along with it. It balances it out.

Most commonly I will make scrambled eggs and bacon. On occasion when I have some extra time, I will make this low carb keto hash that is AMAZING!

Truly, though, you can serve it with whatever you want. Sweet, savory, chocolate, coffee, whatever!
