Start your morning with sprinkles! These Vanilla Funfetti Muffins are the funnest grab-and-go breakfast, and kids are gonna love them!
I may possibly be on sprinkle overdrive! I’ve bought more sprinkles in the past 6 months than I think I ever have. From Perfectly Chewy Funfetti Sugar Cookies, to my oh-so-popular Funfetti Cupcakes, to all the other funfetti recipe testing in between, we have sprinkles running out of our ears.
I even have one more funfetti recipe coming up at the beginning of August! And a few more that I’m trying out between now and Christmas. Yep, funfetti overdrive!
And it’s ok…because Funfetti if fun! We all need a little fun in our lives.
This recipe started out as a great grab-and-go breakfast for busy summer mornings. You know those mornings I’m talking about.
You packed the car the night before, it’s time to head out for vacation, and you wanted to leave the house by 7am to get to your destination before dinner time.
The kids are going to be starving. But these Vanilla Funfetti Muffins are ready to grab and eat as y’all are headed out the door.
Or perhaps it’s the beach bag that’s been packed and ready for days on end, but the weather hasn’t been cooperating..um, hello Florida weather!
You notice when you get up to have your coffee that the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds, you race to get the kids up, swimsuits on, and grab a muffin on the way out the door.
You want to get your toes in the sand before it rains again!
So these started out as a busy summer morning breakfast option. However, it’s the perfect afternoon snack by the pool or on the beach. Toss them in the cooler to keep them cool while you’re kids are splashing it up, and your stuck building sand castles. (Don’t act like you haven’t been there!)
As I started writing this post though, I began thinking how great would these be for a kids birthday breakfast? Or a special treat for the morning of back-to-school?
They would even be perfect for school snack time, or to toss in the lunch box.
Like I said before, funfetti is fun! We all need a little fun in our life!
