Breakfast Sundae Bites Recipe

Happy National Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day! My oldest, Flynn,  just turned two, so he can now help me out with certain things in the kitchen. I have loved getting him involved in the process—he seems to really enjoy cooking!

Plus, when he helps me cook, he eats food I can’t get him to eat otherwise. Apparently, getting to smell the food and feel the different textures is more fun than just receiving a plate of food in front of your face!

To celebrate National Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day, Flynn and I made Breakfast Sundae Bites. Think of it as a nutty, no-bake granola cup with a dollop of greek yogurt and any toppings your littlest heart desires.

We had so much fun making these, and I hope this post inspires you to grab your kiddos and make something yummy in the kitchen. After all, it’s not always about the final dish, it’s about the process, right?

To make these Breakfast Sundae Bites, start by making the granola cups. Prep the ingredients: pit the dates, chop the pretzels and nuts, etc. Then in a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: oats, cashews, and pretzels.

In a food processor, pulse together the wet ingredients: dates, coconut oil, and honey. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix with clean hands. Your little ones will surely love the mixing part. Finally, add salt to taste.

Note: Add 1/2 of the cashews to the wet mixture for a nuttier consistency and pulse in the food processor. For a smoother consistency, add all of the cashews and pulse. I prefer a nuttier consistency, but I’ll leave this up to you.

Next press the granola cup mixture into a mini muffin pan.

Place the pan in the freezer for at least two hours. I have the KitchenAid® Multi-Door Refrigerator, and I love the freezer. It has a 3-tier drawer with a storage divider to keep things organized. The second drawer is the perfect spot for a muffin pan or sheet pan.

When the granola cups have set, remove them from the pan using a knife.

Top them with a dollop of your favorite yogurt. I use Greek yogurt. Flynn is obsessed with Greek yogurt, so it was an easy choice for us.

Finally, decorate your cups! This is the fun part. You can use cereal, sprinkles, honey, and more. Get creative!

We used strawberries and blueberries, cereal, sprinkles, honey, and dark chocolate-covered cocoa nibs. Some other fun ideas are: dark chocolate sauce, caramel, dragon fruit, nuts, and dried fruit.

The granola cups are my favorite part of these Breakfast Sundae Bites. They are made with all-natural ingredients like oats and cashews, and natural sweeteners like dates and honey. And the best part is that they are seriously delicious.

I find myself snacking on the mix all day long. This same mixture could be used for granola bars or a healthier crust for a pie. Maybe key lime? The possibilities are endless.
