1. Funfetti Chocolate Chip Scones

Throw any notions you have about scones out the window, because funfetti chocolate chip scones are nothing like the dry, crumbly baked goods offered at bakeries. These decadent scones are soft and dense and manage to obtain the perfect level of sweetness, which Crazy For Crust attributes to the extra flour that’s added in prior to baking. “I like my scones sweet, but not overly so. If I wanted cake in the morning, I’d eat cake. These are the perfect mix of sweet and not-so-sweet.”

Don’t stress if you don’t have funfetti mix in your pantry; there’s an easy way around it. You can use yellow cake mix instead, just as long as you add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of sprinkles into the batter. These scones, which were adapted from Something Swanky, will ensure you have a great morning!

Thankfully, a funfetti breakfast doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Food Faith Fitness delivers a delicious way to enjoy the same fabulous flavors without derailing your diet. “This breakfast quinoa is quick, easy and tastes like a bowl of Funfetti cake! The protein powder swirl makes it extra creamy AND healthy!”

Not only does this breakfast dish taste great, but it’s also easy to make. Bring vanilla almond milk to a boil, and then stir in quinoa and Truvia. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, stir in the remaining sweetener, and divide the quinoa into bowls. To add the funfetti element, stir together vanilla protein and almond milk, and dollop it onto your quinoa. Pour a touch of almond milk over the finished product, and don’t forget to top it off with sprinkles!

For days when plain ole flapjacks just aren’t enough, prepare funfetti buttermilk pancakes. Sprinkles add bright colors to this quintessential morning meal, while a glaze consisting of confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, milk, and sprinkles ensures this dish is divinely sweet. But if you want your pancakes to look as good as they taste, make sure you don’t overmix!

Sally’s Baking Addiction explains that “overmixing your pancake batter will turn it a putrid purple/green/brown from all the sprinkles’ color. Not at all appetizing.” When it comes to stirring these pancakes, remember one thing: slow and steady wins the race!

Add cake batter flavors to your french toast by following this recipe, which was adapted from Life, Love and Sugar and How Sweet it Is. This is a great breakfast dish for birthday mornings, but it’s also easy enough to enjoy any day of the week. Simply assemble the casserole the night before, pop it in the oven right away in the morning, and voilà, breakfast is ready!

The other great thing about this dish is that it maintains a great texture throughout the baking process. Julie’s Eats & Treats says, “I sometimes hate french toast casserole because I think they are “mushy” in the middle. This one stayed nice and firm and cooked up perfectly!”
