Monkey Bread is something I never had until a few years ago. My mom found a recipe and made it for Christmas Day breakfast, and man was it good! It has since made an appearance of our special holiday breakfasts and brunches.

I loved Maria’s idea to make these into muffins, especially because it allows you to scale down the recipe for just two people. I made these for Bob and I for Easter breakfast. They are so delicious! Unless you’re serving a huge crowd who can finish off a big Bundt pan of Monkey Bread, these muffins are the way to go!

My mom’s Monkey Bread recipes involves frozen bread dough, which has to be thawed and allowed to rise properly. This takes advance planning to execute. These muffins are made with canned refrigerator biscuit dough, so they are super easy and quick. You can open the can and have them in the oven within 10 minutes!

Kids would love these, and it’s nice to have them in individual portions. These would be great to take to a breakfast or brunch meeting or potluck!
