Funfetti Granola

Jump to Recipe

This funfetti granola is for all the grown up kids out there.

Plus all the young kids too.

It is as simple as making a base of coconut and maple granola and adding in a liberal helping of Dr Oetker’s sprinkles. Plus anything else you want (pistachios and cashews work very well)

Yeap it is that simple. Plus this make a great base for some funfetti cookies.

And a big thanks to my friend E whose smarties and toasted coconut granola inspired my funfetti version and for making breakfast fun these past few weeks.

Now what fun breakfast ideas do you have?

  1. This looks like a fun recipe with all those sprinkles and a great way to liven up the mornings.

  2. How fun! I love the idea of using it as a base for cookies. Yum! I am a huge granola fan. I eat it every day for breakfast with some banana or strawberries when they’re in season 🙂

    I hope you’ve been well! Sorry I haven’t been around as much lately – I do miss my visits here!

  3. Great idea for a healthy cereal for kids, Bintu … and adults! I would happily scoff down a bowl or two of this! I was reading the back of a box of granola yesterday in the supermarket and there is sooo much sugar in it. This is a hundred times better. 🙂

    1. I tend to be careful of store bought granola. There are a few brands that are OK but lots of them have to much sugar for me.

  4. Oh, love the idea of using maple syrup in granola – I will add some to the next batch I make. You’ve made it all look very pretty.

  5. Breakfast in our house is more functional I think – although we did do raspberry porridge this week, which was pretty and tasty!

  6. Oh how pretty! Love a homemade granola myself but the kids aren’t always as keen, but this is certainly a way to grab their attention!.
