Funfetti Granola Bites

Oh dear. What have I done?

Somehow, someway, sprinkles hopped into my bowl of oats…

Funfetti Granola Bites

Now, I’ve shared my love for addiction to granola

I’ve shared my love for addiction to funfetti

Sooooooo let’s just combine the two and see what happens?!


mmmm. That’s my kind of energy snack.

Now can someone please clean the runaway sprinkles hiding on my kitchen floor?!


Funfetti Granola Bites

Makes 15 bites, but that depends how big/small you roll them. Keep bites chilled in the refrigerator.


  • 2 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix)
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup (or honey)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles


Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Stir well, until all oats are moistened. This will take some elbow grease!

Refrigerate mixture for at least 1 hour (preferably 2 - you want the whole mixture pretty stiff and stick together well). Remove from refrigerator and roll into balls. Enjoy!

  8. My girls just saw the photos over my shoulder, guess what I’ m making …..(I can hear them in the pantry searching for cake mix as I type….)

  9. so i saw this and the first thing I said was “awww” haha i love sprinkles! they make everything so fun and whimsical! i love that you tied it in with granola different and creative!

  10. These are so cute! And yummy sounding! I would eat that whole platter full! So tempting.

  11. This is toooo good. I love cake mix!

  12. Hi Sally! your blog is SO adorable! I recently found it and drool over every single stinking recipe you share. Seriously. You’re awesome. 🙂 I’d love if you stopped by my blog sometime! I also have a link party going on right now… Keep up the great work!

    • Sophie, that is SO kind of you to say. Your comment seriously made me smile and so happy. And thank you for the link party invite! Headed over there now… 🙂

  13. My two year old son is pointing to the screen and saying, “Bite? Bite?” It’s heartbreaking … I can’t feed him my screen … 😛

  14. I am going to make these for my son’s 6 birthday party. I think instead of making them all into balls, I might mold them in cookie cutters for some fun shapes!

  15. Sally, I’m a big fan! And my husband and kids love these funfetti granola bites. The request was made that I should substitute the cake mix with brownie mix and use chocolate sprinkles instead of rainbow… they are good! 🙂 Thanks for a bunch of great recipes!

    • Cherie! I love these funfetti bites – I haven’t made them in so long! BRownie mix is a great idea. Chocolate and granola… good pair for sure! 🙂

  16. Sally, made these this past weekend. Delicious!! Perfect little snack.
    I also wanted to let you know that I ended up freezing them, so they will last longer. I just put them in a single layer in the freezer, and the next day I put them all together in a ziplock bag. Worked perfectly! Just had one this morning, still as fresh as ever. Thank you for sharing the recipe. CANNOT wait to make more of your recipes TODAY! 😀

    • Hi Holly! I saw these on your blog and commented. They looked amazing! Good to know about freezing them, so thank you! Let me know what else you make today. Happy Baking!

  17. How much fun! I love how festive these look.

  18. I was wondering if i could use quick cooking rolled oats for the granola bites?? its all i have

  19. Yummmmmmmy!

  20. Funfetti is my all time favorite, I know what I’m making this weekend!

  21. Love this recipe!!! Just wondering where I should keep them once I roll them? In the fridge? Or can I put them in my glass cake platter at room temp? Thanks 🙂 Love every single recipe on your site, especially the skinny ones!

  22. Sally, I just found your blog and just like you I love cake batter and sprinkles! I love your blog and recipes. My favorite are the ones with cake mix from scratch… But I love them all! Thanks so much Sally!!!!

    • Sounds like we have similar tastebuds. 🙂 So happy you found my blog. Let me know what you make first!

  23. Yes we do! I will, as soon as I decide…. So many choices!

  24. Great! Thanks Sally!

  25. Ok I finally tried this recipe with homemade cake mix and they were sooo delicious!!! Thanks so much Sally for this amazing recipe!!!!

  26. These look great! Made your snickerdoodles last night, oh my, talk about perfection! But I was wondering if these could be refrigerated over night and rolled into balls the next morning for breakfast?

  27. Hi, do you get about 1 cup cake mix from a box? (so I can double it) =)

  28. May I substitute chocolate cake mix?

    How about dipping these in melted chocolate? Can they handle that? how about putting it on a lollipop stick instead of a cakepop? Do you think it can handle it structurally?
    Thank you.

  29. Just found your blog a few months ago and love it. These have been made 2times in the two weeks that I have found them my daughter loves them, lunch,snack, and breakfast.

  30. Hey Sally! I apologize for all my questions/comments but it’s so amazing that I found someone who not only makes marvelous food/desserts, but also responds to people. i have a few questions once again. So my first question is if you want to make your own homemade cake, would you not add liquid? Also for other recipes can I use gluten-free flour instead of wheat flour? And if I did so, would I need to increase or decrease bake time? Okay I have one more question (I’m so sorry.. this is why I love you…….Don’t be creeped out..) can I find your books at a normal book store or would I have to order them online? Okay, I think I’m finished for now, once I finish I know I will be so mad because I forgot a question. Thanks so much!! 🙂

    • Hi Ann! I’m not sure I understand what you are asking in your first question. Here are all of my cake recipes. I don’t usually have great experience with gluten free flour in my dessert recipes. In fact, I know little about gluten free baking. Here are all of my naturally GF recipes if you are interested. My 1st cookbook is in normal book stores, yes! Barnes and Noble, smaller book stores, etc. I would call ahead of time just to make sure.
