Man, I love monkey bread. It can be full of bacon, cheese, cinnamon, herbs, fruit—it doesn’t matter. I’ll eat it. And while I love what I consider traditional monkey bread (hunks of baked dough coated in gooey cinnamon sugar), I’m always game for trying something new. There’s a good chance it will be a sweet success like these these peach crisp monkey bread muffins.

Apparently when you combine quality pre-made cinnamon roll dough with fresh, diced peaches and a homemade pecan crumble topping, you get to-die-for monkey bread muffins.

HOLY COW.

I’m usually all about using a bundt pan (I love posting bundt cake recipes!), but using a muffin pan make these peach crisp monkey bread muffins the perfect finger food. Make that fingers food because you need at least five to eat one.

The secret to monkey bread muffins like these is using Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Original Icing. No lie. Simply pop the can and cut the pre-made rolls into pieces. Or have your nine-year-old do it ’cause child labor is awesome when it’s your own child.

I find Pillsbury is super convenient for all my springtime baking needs. Using a product like Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Original Icing cuts way down on the time required to make these peach crisp monkey bread muffins. We’ve used those same cinnamon rolls to make traditional monkey bread and the most delicious cinnamon roll waffles. Mmm…
