Everyone Will go Bananas for Monkey Bread in a Jar

Baking in mason jars is all the rage right now. There are cakes, cupcakes, and the like around the blogosphere. So I thought why not make bread in a jar? Better yet, why not monkey bread in a jar.

I love the idea of having individual servings so I baked mine in 8 ounce mason jars. I am a canner, so I have mason jars around the house, if you do not, you can easily pick them up at your local big box store {like Walmart, etc.}

A few tips: You’ll want to be sure that the jars have been thoroughly cleaned prior to using and that you spray them well with cooking spray so the monkey bread easily comes out. Also do NOT overfill the jars or they will overflow.

These take minutes to prepare and are a fun way to get the kids involved in cooking their own special breakfast or dessert treats!
