Crockpot Paleo Monkey Bread is in the house! I can’t take the credit for this amazing recipe. But, I can take the credit for eating the whole first batch I made! I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest when looking for crockpot recipes. I love Pinterest. It honestly is like the best thing since sliced bread! I am an obsessive pinner! Are you? I pin things all day long- then go back and either take them out or re-pin them to a different board. I like to be organized- even in cyber space! Enough with the chit-chat, it’s Fun Foodie Friday and you are here to see a delicious recipe come to life!
I love comfort food. I remember monkey bread was the first thing I ever made in 7th grade home economics! I was the most popular kid on the bus ride that day. The bus driver was less than pleased with all the sticky handprints left all over the seats. I think I added way to much honey back then. I made sure I didn’t follow that same path this time! These are nothing like the version I grew up with, yet everything like the version I loved! They have the same sweet taste, light as air texture and mildly sticky feel. But- they are wicked healthier!
What you need:
1/3 cup of coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
5 tbs coconut oil or grass-fed butter
dash of Himalayan sea salt
2 tbs local honey
1 cup of local honey or agave nectar
4 tbs grass-fed butter- melted
1 tbs of cinnamon or nutmeg * I add both!
The dough recipe is from one of my favorite sites to visit: Wellness Mama. Her recipe calls for 4 eggs, but I only had 3 and it worked out just fine! I used the coconut oil since I adore the taste. If you don’t like the flavor, stick with the butter! This recipe made 7 dough balls (medium size).
Mix all the dough ingredients together and form medium sized balls. Next, melt the butter and mix with honey and cinnamon. Dip each ball into the mix and place in the crockpot. If you wish pour any remaining topping on top. Cover and cook on low for 1-1/2 hours.
“This dough is like me when I was a teenage girl, hormonal and moody. After 1 hour, watch it every 5 minutes to keep it from turning on you”.
I suggest greasing the bottom on your crockpot with some spray or butter and keep a watchful eye after 1 hour of cooking time is complete. My first batch burned in a matter of minutes. I clocked my first batch at 1 hour and 23 minutes. My second batch was just about 1 hour and 19 minutes. It can burn/turn on you quickly! I immediately took them out and added a drizzle of honey and some more cinnamon to each! I dare you to only eat ONE! They are that GOOD!
