Healthy single-serve vegan monkey bread is the most delectable sticky-sweet bread with cinnamon caramel goo baked between puff-balls of gluten-free dough!
The first time I tasted monkey bread I fell absolutely in love with it. Like this-might-be-better-than-chocolate-cake in love. How could you not, it’s soft cinnamon bread with caramel goo baked right in between every little puff-ball of sweet dough!
This Pull Apart Monkey Bread recipe is a delicious dessert (or decadent breakfast treat). It’s dripping with caramel and cinnamon. We took this to a tobogganing party at our friends’ place and it was an enormous hit!
