Rating is based on my 1st attempt as the recipe stated. I decided to give it one more shot, using my experience to guide me, & was not disappointed. I made these using all WHITE whole wheat flour& 2T "vital wheat gluten". I have found from many years of baking w/ww flour that almost any yeast bread recipe that uses egg (i.e. challah, rolls etc.) will convert cup for cup from white to wheat & still be light/fluffy, others may need tweaking, or the addition of some white flour. The dough was still quite wet so I added a more flour (1/4c). I used smart balance oil instead of butter in both parts of the recipe (butter was frozen, didn't feel it was worth the trouble for such a smll amt). I didn't worry about this in the bread part, since I always use oil in lieu of butter in my yeast breads, but was concerned if it would affect taste for the dipping part, it didn't (only need 2-3T oil for dipping). I used 2T honey for the sugar in the bread part of the recipe (something else I always do, dealing w/whole wheat breads; the honey/oil combo keep my wheat breads nice and moist), but I still used (BRWN)sugar for dipping (doubled this amt to 6T; the 1st time I made this 3 wasn't enough). Made the pieces smaller this time (35-40 instead of 20) because w/my whole wheat monkey bread, I find it this gives each bite flavor, or else some bites just taste like bread. I let it rise on the counter for 35min, then covered, put in fridge until am. Only took about 20-22 min,so watch your time.
