How is this recipe sugar-free? 

It can be extremely hard to make any sweet recipe sugar-free and still have it tasting like an indulgent dessert or treat. However, I have a secret for you and it’s Lakanto’s Sweeteners. Lakanto makes sugar substitutes that taste as good as the real thing. Their sweetener has zero calories, no carbs, and is zero-glycemic. It’s perfect for baking, and what’s awesome is it’s a 1:1 sugar replacement, meaning you don’t have to try and figure out how much to put in. For this recipe I used two of their sugars: the Classic which is a white sugar substitute, and the Golden which is a raw sugar substitute.

How do you make vegan monkey bread? 

Making a fun, family-friendly sweet treat doesn’t need to be overly complicated to look and taste impressive. This recipe is simple. Here’s how you make it: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and generously grease a 12-cup fluted tube pan with a cooking spray of choice
  2. In a large plastic bag, combine your Lakanto Classic and cinnamon, set aside
  3. Open your biscuits and separate them into 10 biscuits. Cut each piece into quarters. Place the pieces into the bag and shake until well coated. You will have to repeat this step three times. Arrange the pieces into the fluted pan and coat /dust with any excess cinnamon sugar
  4. Melt the butter and combine it with Lakanto Golden to form a delicious paste.  Pour the mixture into the fluted pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and the dough is completely cooked through
  5. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes
  6. Use a spatula to loosen the edges. Place a plate to the top of the fluted pan and turn it upside down onto the serving plate. Don’t panic if any pieces have stuck, simply grab and reposition
  7. Whip up the icing by adding all the ingredients to a medium-sized bowl till well combined. Drizzle on top of the Monkey Bread and enjoy warm!
