Gluten-Free & Vegan Chai Monkey Bread is the ultimate holiday treat. Sweet sugar combined with warm cinnamon and chai spices.


Units Scale


  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 1 packet of yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of chai powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 1/2 cups of gluten-free flour

Chai / Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 3/4 cups of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon of chai powder
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon

Melted Butter:

  • 4 tablespoons of melted vegan butter


  1. In a bowl mix together the sugar, chai powder, and ground cinnamon and set aside
  2. In a large bowl, pour in the warm water, add the yeast and using a spoon agitate  the water and the yeast until slight bubbles form
  3. Next add the baking powder, chai powder, cinnamon and gluten-free flour until a dough forms
  4. Grease a baking pan, I like to use a loaf pan, if you are using a bundt pan you will need to 1 1/2 the recipe
  5. Using your hands, form 1″ dough balls and roll each dough ball through the chai cinnamon sugar mixture you prepared, and place the dough balls in the pan.
  6. Repeat the dough ball sugar coating process until the dough is fully used up,
  7. You will have a lot of sugar and chai, cinnamon left over – using a new bowl, melt the vegan butter and pour the butter into the sugar mixture to create a loose sugar butter paste
  8. Pour the cinnamon sugar, butter mixture over the top of the dough balls
  9. Place the pan in a warm spot in your house for about 1 hour for the dough to double in size
  10. Once the dough has doubled in size, place in a 425°F oven for 30 minutes until the butter is bubbly and the top looks crunchy
  11. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes before removing from the pan


  • If you use a bundt pan, 1 1/2 or 2x the recipe
