Following is a yummy Monkey Bread Muffins Recipe and guest post
by Audrey at Break It, Make it or Bake It… enjoy!!

I love working during tax season, because I get to bake all I want and then have people to give it away to!  We don’t have to eat all of it by ourselves :)  Everyone seems happy with the arrangement. They get treats, I don’t get stuck with all the goodies!

Last week my boss requested Monkey Bread.  I think his wife has him on a diet and he wanted some sweets… ha ha!

Monkey bread is so easy to make, but seems to make too much, so I decided to try making it into muffins.  {this recipe can be used for a regular batch of monkey bread also}

These were so good for breakfast!  And I think next time I will make a cream cheese frosting to drizzle on the top and make them more like a cinnamon roll muffin!

Monkey Bread Muffins Recipe
  • 3 (12 oz) packages of refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • ½ cup raisins (optional)
  1. Heat Oven to 350 degrees. Put Foil Liners into muffin tin (I figured foil would be better than paper)
  2. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into thirds, and then cut into smaller pieces. Shake biscuit pieces in plastic bag and add all pieces to 1 muffin cup.
  3. Continue until all biscuits are gone or muffin tins are full.
  4. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute.
  5. Spoon 1 teaspoon of mixture over each muffin tin.
  6. Bake at 350 for 17 minutes, or until done.
  7. Cool and eat! The muffins should just pull apart.

      I cut the sauce in half and used 2 cans of the smaller cheep biscuits. Cut the biscuits into 1/4 th put 2 biscuits in each cup. Added the raisins after I filled the cups. I used smaller muffin cup size it made 10 cups.
      Love the cream cheese idea. Cant wait to try that!

    I’m interested in making this & have read through the directions twice… but when & how exactly do you add the walnuts & raisins? I can’t find it. Do you put them with the dough in the cups, or are they cooked with the butter & brown sugar? Thanks.

      Add them into the cups. I also found that there is a lot of sugar/butter mix left over. Keep it and drizzle it over the cup after they come out of the oven.

    I made these tonight. I had a looooot of extra mixture left over. So I’m going to make caramel crispex with it! :) Super easy to make!

    I’ve made this in my bundt pan, but never even thought about doing it in muffin cups. How brilliant is this?! And since once reader also suggested adding in cubes or bits of cream cheese you can bet I’ll try that variety too. I love baking for my coworkers, and this couldn’t be easier!

    This seems like such a yummy and easy idea–BUT WHAT IF you used refrigerated, cinnamon roll dough (comes in a can in the biscuit section) and use the icing it comes with to drizzle on top…oh yeah I am so trying that!!!

    Just made these but i made the dough in my bread machine. Had extra brown sugar butter left over and poored it over chex:)

    I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 c brown sugar and still had left over to throw away . I used the big flaky biscuits!, Albertson’s brand and 1 1/2 was enough. Crowd pleaser here!
