Paleo Monkey Bread

Traditional monkey bread is made from canned biscuits...ew! This homemade version is a great breakfast treat for the holidays. Or it can function as a yummy dessert. I made my bread in a 9x11 pan but feel free to try any pan you want. Muffin tins could even be fun. I also only used a little bit of ghee. You can feel free to double or triple that for extra goo!

Paleo Monkey Bread

4 cups almond flour
3/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp oil (I used almond)
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 maple sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp ghee (melted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl mix almond flour, salt and baking soda. In small bowl mix oil, maple syrup, eggs and lemon juice. Combine wet and dry until well combined. In small bowl mix maple sugar and cinnamon. Drop teaspoon sized balls of batter into the maple sugar mixture. Roll, then place coated batter ball into a greased pan. Once all of the batter is rolled, pour melted ghee over the balls. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until done (baking time will vary based on pan). Serve and enjoy!!

  1. i was wondering could this be put together the night before and then baked in the morning?

    thank you

  2. I'm guessing so. I've never tried. It may just take a bit longer to bake. If you try then let me know how it turns out!

  3. Cait, I have been meaning to try this one ever since you posted it and I finally made some time to do it for mother's YUM..Happy Mother's Day to ME!! I used coconut oil and it worked out great. Also, I used a 9x9 stoneware pan (mine happened to be a pampered chef one) and made the balls about Tbsp size drops baked at 375 for 30 minutes and they were great. Just wanted to share in case anyone else was wondering if you could make them a little bit bigger.

  4. Glad you liked it Bianca!! :) I miss you and your beautiful babies!!

  5. I MUST make this!!! I loooove monkey bread, but the "original" version of it is definitely not paleo. It looks awesome!

  6. For the oil, we'll use coconut oil. We're GF and DF. For the ghee, should we just use more coconut oil?

  7. The recipe says 1/4 maple sugar. I don't have any. What can I sub? Also, is that 1/4 cup? Thanks~
