Funfetti Granola Bites

A very cheerful and delicious energy snack!


  • 2 and 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 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles


  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Stir well, until all oats are moistened. This will take some elbow grease!
  2. 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!


  1. Make Ahead Instructions: Keep bites chilled in the refrigerator.

  1. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for a bunch of great recipes!

    1. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    1. Hi Katrina! Yes, you may use quick oats

  3. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Love every single recipe on your site, especially the skinny ones!

    1. Hi Macie! In the refrigerator.

  4. 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!!!!

    1. Sounds like we have similar tastebuds. ๐Ÿ™‚ So happy you found my blog. Let me know what you make first!

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

    1. So glad you tried it Kelly!

  6. 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?

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. 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.

With kitchen-tested quality recipes and step-by-step tutorials, my goal is to give you the confidence to bake and cook from scratch.
