Monkey Bread Muffins


Bread | February 4, 2012 | By

I was watching Pioneer Woman and saw her recipe for Monkey Bread Muffins and had a flash back of my kids growing up and loving this treat for special occasions or holiday celebrations. When I was browsing through Pinterest  a few nights later and saw it posted on someones board I decided that Monkey Bread Muffins were calling my name.  I went into the kitchen, rifled through my pantry, all of the ingredients were there! I had no excuses left. I pulled my bundt pan out and the next thing I knew our house smelled like nirvana!

These are super easy and fast, there’s nothing fancy going on here at all and it’s a nod to processed foods for sure since you’re using canned biscuits. But it’s for a good cause…because they’re MONKEY Bread Muffins for goodness sake!  Just go with it, you will never see a disappointed face if you walk in with a plate of these muffins to a breakfast or office meeting. They make great gifts at the holidays because everyone loves them and they’re so simple to make you can practically throw them together in your sleep.

I made mine a little heavy on the cinnamon, and recommend you do the same. I also add raisins when I have them around and if I know who I’m serving them to, I add pecans or walnuts…otherwise I hold the nuts because I’m finding too many people are allergic these days to include them in gifts or to take to meetings.
