If you’re on the hunt for a tasty monkey bread variation, this Pumpkin Monkey Bread Recipe is one of the best! The golden brown coloring of this pull apart bread is not only beautiful but tasty, too.

What I really love about this pumpkin spice monkey bread is that it makes me geared up and ready for fall. It’s one of the best, and tastiest, times of the year!
Using a bundt pan is what gives this monkey bread that beautiful appearance and keeps it together easily so that it sticks and allows you to pull apart that first bite. (and all the consecutive bites that are certain to follow!)

Combining the melted butter and brown sugar is what gives this tasty lumpy pumpkin bread it’s sweetness and that beloved stickiness as well. Mix in some of the pumpkin puree and a dash of the pumpkin pie spice and you’re literally almost done with the entire recipe! That last part of the puzzle is to add in the bread/biscuit pieces, but that’s the easy part of the job!
Since we’re big fans of food in our house, my boys love this one a lot. And honestly, what’s not to love? Pair this up with a glass of cold milk and you might just be taking a nap afterward on the couch.
