Ingredients Needed To Make Monkey English Muffins

  • English muffins

  • Nilla Wafer cookies
  • Banana slices
  • Chocolate chips – we used both regular and mini
  • Black food marker

How To Make Monkey English Muffins

STEP 1: Toast English muffin to desired doneness.

STEP 2: Spread a layer of peanut butter onto your English muffing. We prefer to do this when our English muffins are still warm so it’s ooey gooey.

STEP THREE: Place English muffin on serving plate. Place two Nilla Wafer cookies on either side of the English muffin for ears.

STEP FOUR: Place Nilla Wafer cookie on the bottom middle of the English muffin for the nose.

STEP FIVE: Top nose with mini chocolate chips and a hand drawn smile with a food marker.

STEP SIX: Place two banana slices above wafer cookie for eyes. Place two chocolate chips on banana slices.

Variations & Substitutions

  • Almond Butter: For a slightly different nutty flavor, almond butter can be a fantastic substitute. It’s creamy, rich, and pairs wonderfully with the banana.
  • Cashew Butter: Offering a sweeter, milder taste, cashew butter can give your monkey muffins a luxurious twist.
  • Sunflower Seed Butter: Perfect for those with nut allergies, sunflower seed butter is just as creamy and delicious.
  • Strawberry Slices: For the eyes or the mouth, adding a pop of red can make your monkey faces even more fun (and a little more nutritious!).
  • Blueberries: These can be used instead of chocolate chips for the eyes or nose, adding a burst of antioxidant goodness.
  • Apple Slices: Thinly sliced, these can serve as additional facial features or even alternative ears for a different look.
  • Graham Crackers: If you’re out of Nilla Wafers or just want a change, graham crackers can be broken into pieces to create ears and noses.
  • Oatmeal Cookies: For a bit more texture and flavor, small oatmeal cookies can make great ears or noses. Plus, they add a wholesome touch.
  • Mini M&M’s: Use these for a colorful twist on the eyes or nose. They’re perfect for adding a little extra sweetness and color.
  • Nutella: A thin spread of Nutella instead of peanut butter can turn your Monkey English Muffins into a chocolatey delight.
  • Coconut Flakes: Sprinkle some around the edges for a furry effect, or use them to add texture to the monkey’s face.
