Cheddar & Bacon Monkey Bread Muffins

This recipe...was SO good. I wanted to post it up soon because it would make a great side dish to your Thanksgiving feast! Biscuit dough has always been a favorite of mine growing up, and the savory additions to this muffin made it so tasty!

I would just like to preface that this isn’t the most nourishing food, BUT it is part of MY food freedom that I’ve been experiencing, and definitely made for a tasty treat! This blog has healthy, wholesome recipes, and treat recipes, and I’ve come to a place where having foods like this doesn’t bother me or send me over the edge anymore. We have to learn how to nourish ourselves well so that we can enjoy the treats as well and not be so stressed around foo! I am so thankful for the food freedom and nourishment that I’ve been experiencing in this journey, and know that I am here to guide you through it as well, just reach out and we can chat! 

 

Anyways, onto zee recipe!
