Funfetti Baked Oatmeal Bars

How do you brighten up a Monday morning?

With sprinkles of course!

And a wholesome breakfast.

Lucky for you, these Funfetti Baked Oatmeal Bars can provide both those things.

Made from oats, greek yogurt, and sprinkles these bars have everything you need to start the day right...

Fiber, protein, and a whole lot of rainbow color!

Pair one with an apple or some more yogurt and you've got yourself an easy, healthy, and fun breakfast!

Aren't sprinkles the best?

Funfetti Baked Oatmeal Bars

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 banana, sliced into small chunks
  • Sprinkles, how ever much you want (I used 1/4 cup)
Preheat oven to 350F.  In a large bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, and salt.  Add in appesauce, yogurt, water, milk, vanilla, and maple syrup and mix well to combine.  Mixture will be runny.  Fold in banana and sprinkles.  Pour mixture into greased 8x8 pan.  Bake for 25-27 minutes, or until firm.  Remove from oven and let cool before slicing into 9 large squares.  Bars freeze well.

So here's the deal with these guys.  They take a bit of time to make, but once you bake 'em all you've gotta do it cut and freeze, and you have breakfast for the whole week!

How cool is that?  Believe me, it sure solves the breakfast in a rush situation.  Bar, fruit, done.

It's as simple (and delicious) as that.

  1. Looks awesome! I can't wait to try them!

  2. Hey there, Im just eating my version of your delicious recipe for breakfast and must say: WOW, soooo yummy! I used mini dark choc chips instead of sprinkles, left out the banana and maple syrup and used only tea in place of water and milk. That worked out really well and I love these bars! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing!


    1. Thanks for commenting, Loula. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the bars! Mini chocolate chips don't sound like a bad idea at all and I love the idea of using tea. Maybe I'll have to try that!
