Homemade vegan salted caramel monkey bread - tender baked dough balls drizzled in cinnamon and salty caramel sauce.
OIL-FREE: The optional oil in the dough will make it a bit silkier, but isn't necessary for the recipe to be successful. Pictured is the oil-free, all-applesauce version.
FLOUR FOR KNEADING: The amount of extra flour needed will vary depending on the temperature and humidity in your kitchen, as well as variations in measuring the flour to begin with. Just focus on keeping the dough as moist as you can and it should turn out fine.
I used a combination of all-purpose flour and brown rice flour for kneading and used about 1/2 cup total. I would recommend using one of these or another fine flour like oat flour for kneading - the wheat bran in whole wheat flour can cut up the gluten strands and make it more difficult for a moist dough like this to rise properly.
CARAMEL SAUCE: If you're using homemade nut butter, there might be little lumps in the caramel sauce (like in mine) - and that's totally fine.
SILKEN TOFU: Use leftover silken tofu puree in salad dressings, sandwich spreads, or stirred into oatmeal, curries or stews for added creaminess.
