Sweet and Skinny Monkey Bread

While this monkey bread recipe does call for a few healthy swaps, the swaps don’t take away from the taste at all. In fact, you may find that these mini monkey bread bites taste even better than a traditional monkey bread recipe. They pack a lot of flavor thanks in part to a bit of brown sugar.

¼ cup chopped walnuts

3 (7.5 oz each) cans Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

⅓ cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light

¾ cup brown sugar

2 teaspoon water


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a Bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray (I like the cooking spray with flour in it.)

2. Sprinkle the walnuts evenly onto the bottom of the pan.

3. In a bowl, mix together the ⅓ cup sugar and cinnamon.

4. Quarter each biscuit and roll each in sugar mixture. Place all pieces layered evenly in the pan.

5. In a small pan melt the butter, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and cook for 2 minutes. Stir often.

6. Pour evenly over the biscuit pieces. Bake for 25 minutes.

7. Remove from oven and while still hot carefully invert onto a serving plate.

8. Serve warm and let everybody pull off a piece.
