Vegan Monkey Bread Bites

Have you ever had or heard of monkey bread? If so, you are going to LOVE these! This vegan treat is childhood wrapped in one sweet little bite.

My aunt always made my cousins and me monkey bread whenever we slept over. It was the best sweet treat to wake up to! Now that it’s just me and my fiance, it’s hard to make an entire bundt pan. This mini vegan version is the perfect solution! You can pop one (or two or five) at a time for a quick sweet treat or pair it with greek yogurt and fruit for a balanced sweet breakfast.

All you need is a muffin tin and muffin liners, and then 4 ingredients to make this beautiful treat! It’s one of those vegan breakfast treats that are easy enough to make for a week day ahead of time, but special enough to be a part of weekend brunch.

What is your favorite part of monkey bread?

Monkey bread is incredible for so many reasons, it can be hard to choose a favorite! First of all, it is so easy. It requires minimal ingredients and is a fairly affordable option for a special brunch recipe. Another reason it is so good is because it makes the house smell like a holiday morning! The vegan butter, cinnamon and sugar form the most beautiful, cozy smell. My final favorite part of monkey bread is eating it like a monkey! There is something so fun about being able to “pick” at your food, and every time you pick off a piece the warm smell grows stronger and stronger.

I would love to know what your favorite part is! Catch the details for this recipe below and be sure to catch all my other fun vegan breakfast recipes on my blog.

Vegan Blueberry Banana Coffee Cake Bars

Vegan coffee cake is a breakfast and brunch staple. Especially on Mother’s Day! Growing up, Starbucks had some of my favorite coffee cake. I can’t get enough of the crumble topping! Obviously, that recipe is not vegan so I had to do my own healthy vegan take on it.

Vegan Coffee Cake is the key to happiness

I’m not wrong, am I? There’s something about eating cake for breakfast that feels so indulgent, but this vegan blueberry coffee cake is a little more wholesome, packed with nutrients from the blueberries, and still tastes just as fabulous. I love the pop of color the blueberries give this vegan breakfast recipe, making it perfect for a special Mother’s Day brunch but easy enough to make as a weekday breakfast meal prep.

I call these coffee cake bars because I prefer my coffee cake in “snackin” form, meaning it is dense enough to eat with your hands. Who has time to use utensils anyways?! Just kidding, we do use utensils around here, but it feels so fun to eat breakfast with your hands! I love the moisture that the bananas bring to this coffee cake without making it too banana-y. Toss in some fresh blueberries, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful yet easy breakfast or brunch recipe.

To me, vegan baking is all about making recipes that many people can enjoy even if they have food allergies or intolerances. What’s a Mother’s Day brunch or summer get-together without having some food that many people can enjoy?! Plus, I bet your family and friends won’t even know this coffee cake is vegan.
