Monkey Bread Muffins

Lynn demonstrates now to make a variation on Monkey Bread – Monkey Bread Muffins.  These would be great for breakfast, brunch, dessert or just an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee or tea.


  • 1 (12 ounce) can biscuits (10 in a can)
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375°.  

Place cupcake liners in a 12-cup muffin pan.  Set aside.

With kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup and melted butter.  In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon and pecans.

Dip each biscuit piece into the maple butter mixture, then roll in the sugar mixture.  Place 3 or 4 coated pieces in each muffin cup, pressing down to compact.

Bake the muffins for 15-17 minutes.  Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks.  Serve Warm

Makes 12 muffins.
