 Trader Joe’s Sticky Monkey Buns ≡

  • 1 can TJ’s Coconut Oil Spray
  • 1/2 cup TJ’s Organic Sugar
  • 1/2 cup TJ’s Organic Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp TJ’s Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 roll TJ’s refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits, separated & sliced into quarters
  • 1 jar TJ’s Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce
  • 2 ripe TJ’s Bananas, sliced into medallions
  • 1/3 cup TJ’s Unsalted Dry Roasted Pecan Pieces
  • 1 cup TJ’s Jumbo Raisins
  • *You will also need a standard, 12-slot muffin tin (or 10 ceramic ramekin or 10 mason jars placed on a baking tray)*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with coconut oil spray, set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Place biscuit pieces into sugar mixture and toss until well coated. Set bowl aside. Add 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce to 10 of the greased muffin tin cups. Next, on top of the caramel, layer the following ingredients in order: 4 banana slices, 1 teaspoon of pecans, and one small handful of jumbo raisins. Gently press three of the coated biscuit pieces over each cup (you will have a couple extra pieces – be creative). Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until dough turns golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven, allow to cool for a minute, then quickly flip the entire muffin tin over a clean cutting board to release each bun from the cup. Serve warm.

Serves: 10
Cooking Time: 33 – 35 Minutes
