Banana Monkey Bread Muffins

December 6, 2012





I first wanted to make a banana bread pudding but I decided to just make these muffins instead. They turned out amazing and the best part about them is that you can pull them apart while eating them. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and there is no sugar in the dough so their sugar cinnamon coating is what makes them sweet. Make sure to use ripe bananas that have been sitting around for awhile and are brown because they have the best flavour! Oooo Ooo Ahhh Ahhh ;)

Banana monkey bread muffins


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup chilled shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
