Recipe: Gluten-Free Sourdough Monkey Bread

This sweet and buttery classic gets remade with a gluten-free sourdough bread. Sweetened with honey and spiced generously with cinnamon, this tasty dish is a perfect make-ahead breakfast for a busy morning.


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts, optional


  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup brown rice sourdough starter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups oat flour
  • 1 cup millet flour
  • 1 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. xanthan gum


  1. Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl, then add the water, melted butter, honey, brown rice sourdough starter, and vanilla extract. Mix until all wet ingredients are completely combined.
  2. Add the oat flour, millet flour, tapioca starch, sea salt, and xanthan gum. Mix in the flours until everything looks combined and then beat by hand or with a hand-held mixer for at least 5 minutes, to allow the xanthan gum to fully bind with the other ingredients.
  3. Generously butter a 9x13-inch pan. Scoop 1-2 Tbsp. of dough at a time into the bottom of the pan so that each ball of dough barely touches.
  4. Add honey to melted butter and remove from heat. Whisk in cinnamon until everything is combined. Drizzle butter mixture evenly over the dough and sprinkle with nuts. Cover with plastic wrap or other tight-fitting lid and ferment overnight.
  5. In the morning, preheat oven to 350°F. Remove plastic wrap or other tight-fitting lid and place in preheated oven.
  6. Bake 10-15 minutes or until dough is just set. Cool for several minutes before serving.
