We are so excited that Laura from Rustic Scoop is going to teach our community how to make Gluten Free Cinnamon Monkey Bread with the Rustic Scoop Sandwich Mix that we offer with a co-op discount in the Rustic Scoop Sampler.
If you love cinnamon and sugar, paired with an ooey gooey delicious breakfast bread, this turtle bread is right up your alley. Even better, if you have to eat gluten free or suffer from other food allergies.
This gluten free turtle bread, sometimes called gluten free monkey bread or gluten free cinnamon pull apart bread is perfect for brunch and can be either sliced or picked off one dough ball at a time.
It's sure to please a crowd and is easy to make. The best news is that is is perfect for any gathering because it is gluten free, but all other guests will enjoy because it doesn't taste gluten free.

Directions for Gluten Free Cinnamon Monkey Bread
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Prepare a bundt pan with non-stick spray (avocado oil doesn’t work for this) and set aside. If you don’t have a bundt pan, I’m sure you can do this in a baking dish but the baking times will vary.
Put your Rustic Scoop™ Sandwich Bread Mix into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Next, add your milk of choice and mix until just barely combined. Add the rest of the liquid ingredients and mix until well combined. Don’t panic, the dough may seem thin, but it will thicken up, we promise. Continue to mix for a few minutes as the dough begins to thicken. Once the dough has thickened, prepare your cinnamon and sugar mixture. In a small bowl put in the 1/2 Cup of sugar and 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon together and mix with a spoon until well combined.
Now that your dough has had time to thicken and rest, use a medium scoop, about 3 Tablespoons. If you do not have a scoop, just make 3 Tablespoon balls. Scoop your balls of dough and gently shape them in your hand. Roll them each individually in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Once each ball is covered with cinnamon and sugar mixture, place them in your bundt pan in a haphazard fashion. You want them to be on top of each other, but not directly on top of each other. Layer the balls of dough around your bundt pan until the dough is gone.
Melt the butter for the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Add the butter to the cinnamon and sugar mixture and mix well with a spoon until there aren’t any chunks of sugar left. Drizzle the butter and sugar mixture over the top of the balls of dough being sure to get it in all of the cracks and gaps as well.
Set your bundt pan on your stove top or counter to rise for 30 minutes. Once your dough is done rising, bake for 25-30 minutes. The dough balls will be soft but thoroughly cooked. You don’t want the dough to be crisp on the outside or it will end up dry. When your Turtle Bread is done baking, leave it in the pan for 10-15 minutes to set. Once it is set but not completely cool, place a large round plate on top of your bundt pan and quickly flip it upside down. Place the plate on the counter and gently take the bundt pan off the (now) top.
While the Turtle Bread continues to cool, make the glaze for the top. How much glaze you want is completely up to. I would start with 2 cups of powdered sugar. Add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time (or less once you are close to your desired thickness) and stir with a spoon. Be careful not to add too much milk, it happens quickly. Create your desired thickness of glaze and drizzle all over the top of your Turtle Bread.
