Monkey Muffins (Monkey Bread)


We enjoy treats like monkey bread, but there were always a couple of things about the traditional recipe that I didn’t like…which meant I didn’t make it very often. 1)It made more than we could eat. 2) There wasn’t enough cinnamon and sugar compared to bread! 😉

So…I decided to make Monkey Muffins instead of monkey bread!

This is an easy recipe to cut in half or to double!


2 cans (5-count) small refrigerated biscuits

1 cup sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup raisins

Makes approximately 8 monkey muffins.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray regular cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray. (Spray 8 of the 12 openings.)

Mix sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag or medium-sized container.

Quarter each of the biscuits.

Drop the biscuit quarters into the bag and shake vigorously. (This is a great job for the kiddos.)

Put 2-3 of the biscuit pieces in the cupcake pan. Sprinkle raisins over the pieces and top with 1-2 biscuit pieces. Repeat. This will probably make about 8 muffins.

Bake for approximately 16 minutes. Keep an eye on them after about 10 minutes, because the baking time will vary based on how many pieces of biscuit you used in each muffin.
