MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) -

Monkey bread is such a decadent treat, but add bananas to it and it suddenly becomes a little healthier and a lot tastier. Try this recipe next time you've got some bananas around the house that you're not quite sure what to do with.

INGREDIENTS

Serves 10-12

  • 3 bananas, (1 cut into coins, 2 cut into half-coins) 
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 cans biscuit dough 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

Glaze

  • 2 sticks butter 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Garnish

  • Banana Coins 
  • Dark chocolate chips

PREPARATION

1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. 

2. Cut 2 bananas into coins and again in half, set aside.

3. In a bowl mix sugar and cinnamon, set aside.

4. Cut each biscuit round in half and flatten into rounds. 

5. Stuff each round with one piece of the halved banana coins and chocolate chips. 

6. Close the round together by pinching at the seam and roll into a ball in your hands

7. Place the balls in the cinnamon sugar mix and gently toss to coat.

8. In a saucepan over medium heat melt the butter and brown sugar until one, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.

9. Grease a bundt pan and line the bottom with full banana coins.

10. Layer half of the balls in the pan and pour half of the glaze on top.

11. Sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips over top.

12. Repeat steps 10 and 11.

13. Bake for 40-50 minutes until the crust is a deep dark brown on top. (if the top is browning too much you can cover it with aluminum foil.)

14. Remove from oven and allow it to cool or about 15-30 minutes before turning it over onto a plate.

15. Enjoy!
