Easy Monkey Bread Muffins Recipe

These Easy Monkey Bread Muffins are great for breakfast with coffee or as a sweet treat at the end of the day.  


– Nonstick cooking spray (see Note) – 1 stick unsalted butter sub vegan butter for dairy-free – ⅓ cup pure maple syrup – ¼ cup coconut sugar – 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon – Pinch of salt – One 16-ounce can flaky biscuits, 8-count (I use Immaculate organic brand)


Pre-heat oven to 350℉ and spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray if necessary. Melt butter and maple syrup in 20-second increments in a medium microwave-safe bowl until just melted.  

Step 1

Whisk smooth. Whisk in coconut sugar, ground cinnamon, and a touch of salt until smooth. Put 1 spoonful of the mixture in each of the 9 prepared muffin pans. Swirl the pan to coat each tin with sauce.

Step 2

Cut biscuits into 9 equal cubes.  Place cut biscuits in sauce bowl and coat evenly. Evenly fill all 9 muffin tins with coated biscuit pieces, filling them about ¾ full.

Step 3

Evenly sprinkle any remaining bowl sauce over each muffin. Bake for 20–30 minutes until golden brown and no longer doughy in the center.  

Step 4

Traditional muffin tins take 20 minutes, whereas big silicone muffin pans take 30.

Step 5

Pan-cool for 5 minutes. Carefully loosen the edges and remove the muffins from the pan with a tiny rubber spatula or butter knife.
