15 Unique Monkey Bread Recipes That Are Too Ooey, Gooey And Delicious To Pass Up

If you’ve never had monkey bread, you don’t know what you’re missing. Traditionally, monkey bread is dough rolled into tiny balls that are covered in cinnamon and sugar and stacked on top of one another to form a loaf (that’s how I’ve always had it, at least).

It’s delicious and great for parties or instances where you’ll be feeding lots of people because you can easily pull apart just a few pieces at a time for an individual serving.

And if you thought the original monkey bread was good, then you definitely have to try these 15 unique twists on the classic version.

They range from sweet to savory and can be eaten at breakfast, lunch or dinner depending on which recipe you choose.

So, bring on the non-traditional monkey bread, already. My mouth’s watering just thinking about it!
