I love quick and easy recipes. Don’t you? If a recipe has complicated ingredients or takes too long to make, I move on.
That’s one of the many reasons why I love this easy recipe for Apple Monkey Bread Bites.
This monkey bread recipe has chunks of apple and drips with butter and cinnamon. It’s mouthwatering.
To be honest, I’m not sure who loves Apple Monkey Bread Bites more: kids or adults.
It’s meant to be kid food. It kinda has the name “monkey” in it. But the apple cinnamon is irresistible and I, along with any mom friends or other adults who may be with me, can’t help ourselves from digging in alongside the kids.
Friends, neighbors, and family alike rave about how yummy these little bites are. And no one believes it when I say Apple Monkey Bread Bites take less than 10 minutes to whip together with another 15 in the oven. Yes, they are that quick.
One time I was in the middle of making this recipe when I got distracted mid-baking-session (some friends came over). Nathan, who is 9, finished making them and even popped them in the oven all by himself. (Don’t worry, he’s been taught oven safety.)
Okay, I’ll stop talking for a minute while you look over the recipe:
See how easy this monkey bread recipe is? And trust me, it doesn’t taste gross like some recipes with store bought biscuits do. Yeah, I know. Some of those recipes are nasty. But these are not.
Here’s what you need
The recipe says you can use butter or margarine, but it’s butter all the way for me. I like the real stuff.
Shaken, not stirred (I couldn’t resist throwing that in there.)
The smell of fresh cinnamon baked treats all around the house is a very nice bonus.
Make sure you flip them over exactly 1 minute after you take them out of the oven. You don’t want those suckers sticking to your muffin pans.
Ahhhh…now you can enjoy those apple cinnamon bites of delight. Err monkey bread bites. Yes, because they’re for the kids, right?
We’ll just keep telling ourselves that. I won’t tell if you don’t.
There you have it – Apple Monkey Bread Bites.
