How To Make Air Fryer Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread

Chopped Apples in Bowl with Ground Cinnamon

Chop apples into small pieces (discard the stem, seeds, and core). Place apple pieces and cinnamon in a bowl. Add brown sugar and melted butter mix well until apples are evenly coated. Set aside.

Diced Biscuits

Cut biscuits into ¼ pieces. Place the ¼ pieces into a large bowl.

Pour Apple Pie Filing over biscuits

Preheat the air fryer to 325 degrees F, air fryer setting. Pour apple mixture over biscuit pieces. Using a large spoon, gently mix it, so the biscuit pieces are completely covered in the apple mixture.

Grease a bundt cake pan*. Transfer the apple-covered biscuits to your bundt cake pan. Spreading the mixture evenly around the edges.  Place it right into the AirFryer. Air fry for 18-22 minutes. It should turn a nice golden brown. When you insert a toothpick, it should come out clean if the dough is fully cooked!

Pro Tips:

  • I used a bundt cake pan, and it fit perfectly in my air fryer. If a bundt cake pan is too big for your air fryer, use another pan that fits – a loaf pan or a small cake pan..you can even use foil! If you use foil, remember to spray it with a nonstick cooking spray and arrange the monkey bread together so that it is all touching but is a little bit flatter than if you had it in a pan. 
  • You can use any apple you’d like – I find the Fuji or Pink Lady varieties work best for this. 
  • The glaze is optional, you don’t have to glaze it, but it helps keep it moist for longer.
  • This monkey bread is deliciously fresh if kept covered in the fridge for 4-5 days. It’s the perfect breakfast treat to make for holidays or weekends, and it’s so easy to do! Crispy on the edges with a pillowy soft center. The apples, cinnamon, and butter combine for the perfect comforting flavors!
  • This recipe can be prepared in any air fryer basket or oven model. Even the Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Crisp Lid or Mealthy Lid.

Optional Icing/Glaze:

Make a quick glaze by combining the milk and the confectioner’s sugar. Stir well.

 Sprinkle the monkey bread with an additional pinch of cinnamon & sugar. Pour the glaze over the top.

Variations:

Today, I made a classical Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread, but there are many ways to change this recipe out. Some of my favorite variations are:

  • Nuts: Add some great diced pecans, walnuts, or even dry roasted nuts. Mix them in when you mix the diced apples, so they are folded into the mixture.
  • Drizzle: Serve with a drizzle of icing, (recipe above) caramel glaze, or even chocolate sauce, before serving.
  • Add-Ins: Some great add-ins are diced cooked bacon, raisins, or even some dried fruit.

Make-Ahead & Storage:

This air fryer apple cinnamon monkey bread is deliciously fresh if kept covered in the fridge for 4-5 days. The important thing is that you need to make sure it’s sealed to dry out.

Use and wrap your money bread in saran wrap, and then place it into the refrigerator, as the air tends to dry it out.

You can reheat the Air Fryer Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread in either the microwave or in the air fryer right before serving.

Freezing:

For best results, I would not advise freezing this money bread, and as when it is frozen, it tends to defrost as a dried-out piece of dough.

For best results, make a new one every time you want one. And since it bakes up in minutes, it’s well worth it.
