More About This Recipe
  • We can all agree that mini food is tastier, cuter, and totally more fun than its full-sized counterpart, right? These little Monkey Bread Muffins totally fit that bill. My little monkeys love a big ol’ serving of monkey bread in the morning, but it just ends up being such a waste in my house. My husband leaves for work at o’dark thirty, so it’s just the three of us here for breakfast. Try as we might, we can never finish off a full Bundt pan’s worth of monkey bread. These little muffins are the perfect fix for that problem! I used Grands! Original biscuits to make just 8 monkey muffins and it was the perfect amount for the three of us. My teenager ate three, my daughter ate two, and throughout the day, I ate the rest, picking a piece off each time I walked through the kitchen. (*burp*) Pop those suckers out of the muffin tin and place them on a rack. Whip up a simple powdered sugar icing and drizzle it over your monkey bread muffins. Then get busy shoveling them in yo’ face.
