I have a major crush on all things monkey bread.

It’s sweet, sticky and crazy indulgent.

I remember the first time my stepmom made monkey bread. I was all “ummm how is something delicious going to come out of biscuits from a can?”

Yeah, I should have never questioned her because hot damn monkey bread is pretty much a gift from the sugar glazed gods.

I wasn’t even sure how to categorize this thing.

Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? Is it bread? Is it a cake? I finally settled on calling it a dessert BUT I’m 100% on board with eating this for breakfast too.

I would even be ok with putting an egg on top of this pumpkin spice apple monkey bread and calling it a balanced meal.

Well, a balanced-ish meal. #putaneggonit

I also happen to think this monkey bread is super simple to make.

I know it starts with store-bought biscuits but I’m not even sorry. It’s worth it.

If you judge me over biscuits we cannot be friends.

You would also probably judge for me the fact that I love the following items:

  • cheez-its
  • nuggets with sweet and sour sauce
  • tuna noodle casserole
  • watching large amounts of court tv
  • loving Maury Povich and all his paternity test needing guests

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m a hot mess and you should all just accept me as I am.

Also, anytime someone wants to get together to watch The People’s Court followed up by a few episodes of Maury all while eating cheez-its I’m 100% down.

Let’s make a playdate.

Now if you’re not sure what monkey bread is I’m about to make your life a billion times better.

It’s basically bread mixed with sugar and lots of spice.

Traditionally it’s just cinnamon BUT this time I opted to use pumpkin spice (which is a combination of ALL my favorite fall spices) and I tossed in these awesome diced dried apple pieces from Bob’s Red Mill.

Which are basically just little tiny bits of unsweetened dried apple that can be thrown in without adding a ton of moisture BUT still giving you that awesome apple flavor!

So, whether you want to eat this pumpkin spice apple monkey bread for breakfast OR dessert I won’t judge you.

I may or may not have eaten it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
