Apple Raisin Monkey Bread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Unilever.

So I shared with you earlier this week that I got a chance to bake – finally! I made up a little healthier version of classic Monkey Bread by adding some fruit to my normal recipe, and using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® That added some fiber and cut down on the overall calories that went into the recipe – not that Monkey Bread is ever going to be considered “health food”, haha – but hey, if I can make small changes to feel better about indulging, I will!

Ingredients
  • One 10-ct. can refrigerated biscuit dough
  • ½ c. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®
  • ⅓ c. brown sugar
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 oz. raisins (an individually-sized box) - about 2 Tbsp.
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. Open tube of biscuit dough and separate biscuits - cut each into 4-6 pieces.
  3. Plump raisins by placing them in a microwave-safe dish and covering them with water. Microwave for 30 seconds, then drain and set aside.
  4. Melt I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® on medium heat in a small saucepan. Once completely melted, stir in brown sugar and heat for about one minute until sugar begins to melt and the mixture is well-blended. Remove from heat.
  5. In a sealable bag, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Dip or stir biscuit pieces in the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® and brown sugar mixture until they are coated.
  7. Toss coated biscuit pieces and diced apple pieces into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and shake until well-coated.
  8. Place sugar-coated pieces in your muffin tin, alternating dough and apple slices. Periodically add raisins to each muffin cup.
  9. Press each cup until well-packed, and bake.
  10. For bread pan - bake 25-30 minutes. For jumbo muffins, 18-20 minutes, and for normal muffins, 14-16 minutes. Cool at least 10 minutes in pan before removing. Serves 6.

If anything in these directions seems unclear, I also shared a short video outlining the steps for baking in my previous post – so be sure to check that out!

Using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® was no different than when I make up the recipe with real butter, so it was an easy change to make! I even bought the sticks, so we have been using it just as we would real butter. My husband is the die-hard butter lover in our house, and even he was fine with the switch. If you haven’t tried the substitute yet, I think you would be pleasantly surprised!
