Crock Pot Cinnamon-Orange Monkey Bread

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 3 hours

In my opinion, Monkey Bread is one of those breakfast recipes you make when you want comfort food. It’s gooey & sweet, like a giant cinnamon roll that you can eat with your fingers. We wanted to kick it up even more and used orange peel powder along with loads of cinnamon and brown sugar.

 This recipe can be modified in any way your heart desires. You could add chunks of apple, swap orange for cloves or cardamom, you could even toss in cooked crumbled bacon for a savory surprise.
