Vegan and Gluten Free Monkey Bread

This vegan and gluten free monkey bread is pretty easy to make and sooo tasty! We grew up eating monkey bread but my husband had never had it before! So it was fun testing this recipe and having him experience tasting the cinnamon sugar doughy perfection that is monkey bread. This one also happens to be a healthier version that is plant based and made with gluten free oat flour!
