Apple cinnamon monkey bread is a pull-apart bread made with store-bought cinnamon rolls and apple pie filling. While I love some recipes entirely from scratch, I also love a good ol’ store-bought wonder, and this is one of them!

The best part is, whoever tries it will have NO idea it’s made with such simplicity. It’s that good! Apple monkey bread is ideal for so many different occasions. Brunches, showers, Halloween parties, Thanksgiving dessert, or just because you need something to snack on! No matter the occasion, this easy to make (and super budget-friendly) monkey bread will make it ten times more tasty.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • The versatility of this monkey bread makes it so you can use whatever filing you’re dreaming of! You can even combine flavors. I think cherry pie filling or raspberry pie filling would be great if you don’t use apple.
  • Add a dash of pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice into the cinnamon roll glaze or sprinkle it on top of the glaze before serving.
  • Use a different flavor of canned cinnamon rolls to change it up. I’ve seen orange cinnamon rolls and the apple filling with the citrus flavor would pair nicely. Alternatively, homemade orange cinnamon rolls to can be made to serve alongside apple monkey bread.
  • You don’t have to use a bundt pan for this if you don’t have one. A 9×13 inch baking pan works just as well!

Storing and Reheating Instructions

This is best eaten day of, but if you have leftovers, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To reheat, a toaster oven or oven would be best so it’s not soggy. The glaze likely will not look as nice as it was when it was first poured on as it tends to not keep and reheat as well.
