Quick Pecan Monkey Bread with Biscuits

This Pecan Monkey Bread recipe is a delicious treat that only needs 6 ingredients and saves time by using refrigerated biscuits.

My family absolutely loves monkey bread. So much that it’s hard for me to grab some pictures before they want to taste it.

And by taste I mean eat it as soon as it cools! So after making this one a few years ago, I decided to make a variation with this 6-Ingredient Pecan Monkey Bread that I’m bringing you today.

I typically purchase a large bag of walnuts from Sam’s Club, but recently decided to buy pecans instead. So feel free to use either pecans or walnuts in this recipe. My daughter has also been asking to make pecan pie, so we’ll likely be trying this simple, 5-minute prep Easy Pecan Pie recipe soon.

Ingredients Needed for this 6-Ingredient Pecan Monkey Bread

  • 2 cans, refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • cinnamon
  • white granulated sugar
  • brown sugar
  • butter
  • pecans

Steps to Making This 6-Ingredient Pecan Monkey Bread

Step 1: First, melt the butter and combine it with the brown sugar and chopped pecans. Then, add it to a well-buttered/greased bundt pan.

Step 2: Cut up each biscuit into four pieces.

Step 5: Bake for 35-40 minutes or until biscuits are thoroughly cooked.

Now sometimes my monkey bread comes out perfectly after it’s cooled. However, that’s not always the case.

At times, parts of the biscuits stick to the pan. I just try got use extra non-stick spray (or melted butter) to help minimize it. Regardless, it still tastes amazing…just difficult to take pictures if it’s sticky!

Dietitian’s Dish

I love to talk about moderation and with this post, it’s even more important. Now that my kids are getting to an age where they are making more independent food choices, I’m very cautious about how I speak about food.

I made this pecan monkey bread a few months ago, then had to leave soon after.

When I got home, it was gone…like 2 hours later! I was a bit surprised, but then again, all 3 of my kids LOVE this dessert.

I talked about how we should regulate how much we eat and could have enjoyed some the next day. Emphasizing that we don’t want stomach aches and it would be nice to be considerate since mom and dad likely would have liked to enjoy some as well.

BTW, I love that my kids are still interested in what I’m doing when I’m prepping/making food for this blog – this is my 9-year-old’s hand above 🙂

So this week when I made the monkey bread again, two of my kids were home with me. I mentioned that we should try to eat moderate portions of the monkey bread, along with our dinner, so we could enjoy some the next morning or afternoon.

And they seemed to be perfectly content with that idea.
