Although the classic monkey bread recipe calls for pecans, of course you can use chopped almonds instead! Here are a couple more ideas to give your monkey bread some originality:

Layer biscuits with apple chunks and walnuts... mmmm!

Layer biscuits with strawberry jam and fresh strawberry slices. For this variation, you would want to cut out the cinnamon and maybe replace the pecans with almonds. Of course, you can also use this same idea with other fruits… for example: apricot jam and apricot jelly or raspberry jam and mixed berries. Just remember to cut out the cinnamon! Unless you're using apple or pear jam with apples or pears! Have fun creating your own fruit combos!

Chocolate lover? Layer with chocolate chunks or chocolate chips. Just remember to cut out the cinnamon. Enjoy whatever monkey bread recipe you come up with! You can't go wrong because they are all so good!
