Fruity Pebbles Breakfast Bread

We don't eat a lot of cereal anymore, but my kids really like a box of Fruity Pebbles every once in a while.  We had a box with a little bit to use up, so I thought why not look for recipes with Fruity Pebbles?

Banana bread with Fruity Pebbles recipes are fun and make an interesting quick bread.  It's a delicious twist on a traditional banana bread recipe.  

I used an easy banana bread recipe with two bananas, so it's easy to make.  You can either make Fruity Pebbles breakfast bread the night before or make in the morning.

Is it OK to Eat Banana Bread for Breakfast?

This Fruity Pebbles bread has cereal and bananas in it, but it's still a sometimes treat for my family.  There's a lot of sugar in it, but you can swap the sugar for Splenda for baking or monk fruit.  

Personally, I replace half of the sugar with Splenda because it's too bitter for my taste otherwise.  The cereal still has a lot of sugar in it, so this unique banana bread recipe will still have quite a bit of sugar in it.

I also swap about 1/3 of the flour for whole wheat flour or ground oats.  You can also use half ground oats and half almond flour for a healthier option and still maintain the texture and taste.

Can You Put Oats in Banana Bread?

Oats complement banana bread really well.  I have an oatmeal based recipe that I use often.  

To adapt this Fruity Pebbles bread recipe, I suggest using half ground oats and half almond flour in place of the all purpose flour.  You could also simply replace half of the flour with ground oats.

What if You Don't Have Enough Bananas for Banana Bread?

This cereal bread recipe only takes two bananas.  You can freeze ripe bananas to use to make banana bread later.  The peel will turn dark, but the bananas will be fine for bread.

You can also use applesauce in place of the bananas.

How Many Bananas Make a Cup?

Three medium sized bananas are about one cup of mashed bananas.  If you use applesauce, you can use 2/3 to one cup of applesauce.

It won't hurt your Fruity Pebbles bread to have a bit extra applesauce or to use two large bananas in it.

What Happens if You Use Fresh Bananas in Banana Bread?

Banana bread recipes call for ripe or overripe bananas because ripening changes the starches in bananas to sugar. 

This makes the bread taste sweeter naturally.  Overripe bananas also mash easier.

I recommend using bananas with brown spots on the peel to make Fruity Pebbles breakfast bread.

Can I Use Bruised Banana for Banana Bread?

I use bruised bananas to make bread all the time.  You will need to cut out any bruises.  You can add more banana or make up the difference with applesauce if you need to.

How Do You Keep Banana Bread Moist?

After you bake the banana bread with Fruity Pebbles, let it cool completely on a wire rack.  Make sure that it is completely cooled before storing.

Then place a paper towel on the bottom of an airtight container.  Place the bread on the paper towel and then cover with another paper towel.  

You can then store the bread for three to four days.  I really like these reusable storage bags for non messy foods.

What Do You Eat With Banana Bread?

We eat banana bread plain or with real butter.  However, this Fruity Pebbles breakfast bread tastes delicious on its own.

It's sweet, moist, and the cereal gives it a unique flavor and texture.

How to Make Fruity Pebbles Banana Muffins?

To make muffins, follow the same recipe and bake in paper lined muffin tins.  Then raise the temperature to 375 degrees F.  Then bake for 23 to 28 minutes.  

Check on the muffins at 23 minutes because oven times can vary.  The muffins are done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

How Long Does Fruity Pebbles Breakfast Bread Last?

This cereal bread recipe will last about 4 days.  You can also freeze it in a freezer bag for up to three months.

Store in an airtight container on the counter.

Fruity Pebbles Bread Variations

Here are some variations for this banana bread with Fruity Pebbles recipe:

  • You can use nearly any cereal in place of Fruity Pebbles.  Cocoa Pebbles would be really good!  If you are using a larger cereal, then crush it slightly to be able the same size as the pebbles.
  • You can replace half of the cereal with walnuts, chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips.
  • Replace up to half of the flour with ground oats for more texture.
  • To cut back on the sugar, replace half to all of the sugar with Splenda for Baking or monk fruit.
  • Make Fruity Pebbles banana muffins by increasing the temperature to 375 degrees F and baking for 23 to 28 minutes.
  • Replace half of the Fruity Pebbles with diced strawberries or whole blueberries.
