Individual (skinny) Monkey Bread


Monkey bread is a classic part of brunch in my family. My mum always made traditional monkey bread. While it always looked and tasted fabulous, it was definitely a mess. When I started to host brunches I wanted to keep the tradition of monkey bread alive, but without the mess. Thus, individual servings were created. 
Individual Monkey Bread
Yields: 6
125 calories each; 4+pts
Ingredients
• 1 can reduced fat crescent rolls
• 1/4 cup lite maple syrup
• 2 teaspoons light butter
• 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons cinnamon
• cinnamon and sugar(I mixed splenda and granulated sugar) mixture for rolling bread balls in

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray 6 cups in a muffin/cupcake tin.
2. Open your can of crescent dough, and cut each triangle into 3 equal-sized pieces. Roll each piece of dough into equal size balls. You should get 24 balls per crescent roll can.
3. Toss the dough balls in the cinnamon and sugar mixture; until coated.
4. Add syrup and cinnamon to melted butter mixing until combined.
5. Place four balls into each indiviual muffin compartment, pour the butter mixture over each, until the dough balls are slightly covered.
6. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until dough is cooked and the top becomes caramelized.
7. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Use a knife around the edge of each monkey bread to loosen. Serve warm.
