How to prepare Keto Monkey Bread:

Making the Dough:

1    Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit before starting to make the keto monkey bread.

2   Make delicious and indulgent keto monkey bread with just a handful of ingredients. Start by melting mozzarella and cream cheese together in a microwave-safe bowl for 30-second intervals until combined.

3   Then add the melted butter, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine all ingredients until dough is formed.

4   Start by whisking together almond flour, swerve sweetener, salt and baking soda. Then add the dry ingredients to the melted cheese and egg mixture to complete the recipe.

5  Next, use your hands to knead the dough until all the ingredients are completely combined.

6  To make keto monkey bread, divide the prepared dough into 24 small balls before baking them in the oven.

2  Then, take individual pieces of dough and dip them into the melted butter before rolling them around in the sugar/cinnamon mixture and placing them into a bundt pan.

Cover with Sauce and Bake:

1   To make it, you’ll need butter, heavy cream, brown swerve, and salt. Begin by heating these ingredients together in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, bringing them to just a boil.

2   Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract for added flavour.

3   Pour the prepared sauce evenly over the dough balls in the pan.

4   Place in preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until tops are golden brown and sauce is bubbly.

5  After baking your keto monkey bread in the oven for around 25 minutes, let the dessert cool for 10 minutes before inverting it onto a plate. Enjoy!
