Less sugar, butter instead of margarine, and refrigerated pizza dough instead of biscuits – but it still adds up to a delicious cinnamon-y treat! You’ll love this healthier monkey bread.
Original recipe makes 1 10-inch tube pan
1/3 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
36 ounces refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch tube pan.
- Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut pizza dough into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Shake 6 to 8 pieces of dough in the sugar-cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in bottom of prepared pan. Continue until all dough pieces are coated and placed in pan. Arrange nuts and raisins in and among dough pieces.
- Melt butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over dough; let rise for 30 minutes.
- Bake in preheated oven until bread is golden brown, about 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Pull apart pieces of bread to eat.
