Mini Monkey Bread

I've been working on a few breakfast recipes, since it IS the most important meal of the day!!

Here is the first of the many that I've tried... Enjoy!!

Mini Monkey Bread

1 Granny Smith apple
1 bag "Salad Pizazz"
(Salad Pizazz Contains Walnuts, Dried Cherries & Dried Cranberries... Pure Bliss)
1/2 cup brown sugar
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 (8-count) refrigerated cinnamon rolls


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray or Butter a 12-count muffin tin generously.

Dice the apple into 1/2-inch cubes. In a medium bowl stir together the diced apples with the Salad Pizazz and brown sugar.

Divide the apple mixture evenly into the muffin tin, along with 1/4 tsp of diced butter in each muffin cup. Put 8 cinnamon buns, cinnamon side up, on top of the apple mixture. Put the muffin tin on a baking sheet and bake until the tops are golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove the muffin tin from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Flip onto parchment paper to remove the Mini Monkey Bread.

Drizzle the frosting (provided with cinnamon rolls) over Mini Monkey Bread and serve.

Food For Thought:
Why is it called Monkey Bread? I'm not sure what the real answer is, but i’ve always assumed it had something to do with the bread being easy to pull apart to eat by little hands – for instance the hands of monkeys or small children.

Have a WONDERFUL Monday!!
