Ingredients

bread dough:

  • 3 C. Gluten-free Flour Blend (we used 1:1 gluten-free baking flour by Bob’s Redmill)
  • 1/2 C. Organic Cane Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 C. Vegan Butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 C. Plain So Delicious Dairy Free Coconutmilk Yogurt Alternative
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • ½ C. Turbinado Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon

apple-walnut topping:

  • ½ C. Red Apple, diced
  • 1/4 C. Walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 C. Organic Cane Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 C. So Delicious Dairy Free Culinary Coconutmilk
  • 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt, or less, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

 

Prepare the Bread Dough:

  1. Prepare 4 mini loaf pans or a small bundt pan with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk the turbinado sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Blend the gluten-free flour blend, cane sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the vegan butter to the bowl and combine, using a pastry cutter.
  4. Add the Coconutmilk yogurt alternative and gently mix until soft dough is formed.
  5. Gently roll small spoons of dough into ball and coat with the turbinado sugar and cinnamon mixture. Work quickly to avoid warming the butter in the dough.
  6. As you work, fill the pan(s) with balls of dough. Avoid creating mounds that are too high, and allow cracks for the topping to fall into.
  7. Allow the dough to rest at room temperature while you make the topping.

Add the Apple-walnut Topping:

  1. Toss the diced apple in the cinnamon to coat.
  2. Heat the Culinary Coconutmilk on low. Stirring constantly, add the brown sugar, salt & vanilla. Once the sugar is dissolved, incorporate the apples and walnuts and remove from the heat.
  3. Spoon the topping over the dough; not too much, just enough to sit on top.

This gluten-free pull-apart bread is perfect for a sweet breakfast or a casual dessert.

Bake the Monkey Bread:

  1. Bake the loaves for 30 minutes, until tops are browned.
  2. Cool in the loaves for 10 minutes before turning out of the pan.
