Blueberry Oatmeal Monkey Bread

I love monkey bread.  LOVE it. 
I love brinner.
I love to bring people meals.  I love for those meals to be the unexpected treat of brinner.
Because there is just so much pasta/ chicken randomness/ that someone can take.

The thing is, monkey bread is sort of time consuming, not difficult, but it does take a while to prep, plus it really only tastes good when baked in a bundt pan.
The world has yet to invent a disposable bundt pan, and since our crazy schedule often means that I often drop off the meals early for the family to bake at their leisure, the monkey bread situation has been complicated.
Thankfully, my friend Amanda had a blueberry version, served in a normal baking dish, at a bridal shower and instagrammed the recipe card.

In my excitement, I didn't really pay attention to the ingredients and accidentally mad my own little version.  Mine has more brown sugar and eliminates the step of rolling the Grands in cinnamon sugar. 
More brown sugar and less steps?  Yes please.

Here is what you will need:

1 can buttermilk Grands biscuits
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar
1/2 cup quick oats
2 cups blueberries

Grease 9x12 pan (If you are taking it to a friend, consider sending it in a disposable foil pan. I stock up at Costco.)
Tear Grands into pieces, place in pan
Melt butter and brown sugar together over low heat until bubbly, stirring frequently

Pour over Grands

Mix together rinsed blueberries, cinnamon sugar, and  oats
Spread on top of Grands/ brown sugar mixture
Bake at 375ยบ for 20-30 minutes until Grands are golden brown.

It is a perfect accompaniment to Make Ahead Breakfast Bake.
Now I want brinner.
