Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Silk® Unsweetened almondmilk
  • 2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour blend (one that contains xanthan gum)
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Vega® Protein & Greens
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce or mashed banana
  • 1 cup granulated cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Preparation

  1. Grease a Bundt pan with non-dairy butter or coconut oil.

  2. Heat milk until warm but not hot (about body temperature). Add in yeast and sugar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine gluten-free flour, Vega® Protein & Greens, baking soda and salt. Mix in melted coconut oil and apple sauce(or mashed banana).

  4. Pour in yeast mixture and mix with hands. Dough should be thick enough to roll into soft balls. If too thin, add in more flour and if too thick add in a small amount of water. To test density, drop a ball on the counter – it should flatten.

  5. Add granulated cane sugar on to a cookie sheet.

  6. Roll dough into approximately 1 inch balls and then roll in sugar. Arrange balls in the bottom of the Bundt pan with frozen berries.

  7. In a saucepan, melt water and brown sugar over medium heat. Once melted, bring to a boil and let boil for 1 minute – watching closely.  Pour over the dough balls and berries.

  8. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

  9. Preheat oven to 350F.

  10. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when tested. Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before eating.
