Everyone Will go Bananas for Monkey Bread in a Jar

Ready in 45 minutes

Baking in mason jars is all the rage right now. There are cakes, cupcakes, and the like around the blogosphere. So I thought why not make bread in a jar? Better yet, why not monkey bread in a jar.

I love the idea of having individual servings so I baked mine in 8 ounce mason jars.

A few tips: You�ll want to be sure that the jars have been thoroughly cleaned prior to using and that you spray them well with cooking spray so the monkey bread easily comes out. Also do NOT overfill the jars or they will overflow.

These take minutes to prepare and are a fun way to get the kids involved in cooking their own special breakfast or dessert treats!


1 can refrigerated biscuits; (10 count) cut into quarters
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Brown sugar; dark
1 teaspoon Cinnamon; ground

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mason jars with cooking spray and place them into a deep sided baking tray.

2. Into a bowl, add: sugars, and cinnamon. Whisk together to combine. Place cut biscuits pieces into sugar mixture. Toss to combine and coat well.

3. Evenly distribute coated biscuit pieces between the jars. Adding a little extra of the sugar mixture as you go. Fill only 3/4 of the way up the jar (to allow for bread to rise and not overflow).

4. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes until monkey bread has risen and is golden and bubbly. Allow jars to cool slightly prior to serving.
