Homemade maple-based granola with a twist. This granola is made up of the perfect combination of maple and cinnamon and paired with sprinkles, birthday cake flavor, and tons of Birthday Cake Crumbles. It is definitely going to be your new favorite snack.   

Birthday Cake Granola With Local + Lejos | Sprinkles For Breakfast

It’s like having cake for breakfast – but nobody can judge you for it.

You can have it over yogurt, or in your smoothie bowl – or you can just do what I do and eat it by the handful as a snack. 

What makes this Birthday Cake Granola so amazing?

  • Granola is always a good idea
  • It is super easy to make
  • There are sprinkles involved (and you know how I feel about sprinkles)
  • There are huge chunks of my Milk Bar inspired Birthday Cake Crumbles 
  • It is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday before the day gets started 
  • But it is also good any time of day

The other great thing about granola is that you can make it ahead of time and it stays good for weeks! Here are my suggestions for storage: 

Two ways to store your granola:

  1. Keep your granola in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 weeks. I store mine in a mason jar. 
  2. Place your granola in a plastic bag (with all the extra air let out) and keep it in your freezer. It can last up to 3 months like this!

Another fun fact (not related to granola) a group of women from Rwanda made the bowls that you see in these photos.  They are from Local + Lejos. Local + Lejos is a home decor company that provides you with unique handmade goods from amazing artists around the world. It’s pretty cool 🙂

Back to the granola. As I said, you can definitely eat this granola with yogurt or a smoothie bowl for breakfast – but personally, I have been eating it as a snack. And by snack, I mean I have been eating it by the handful every hour for the last few days. It’s kind of addicting. I can’t wait for you to try it.

We should all be more like Olive. 
 
▶️ We should do what we love–no matter how crazy people think it is.

▶️ Let me spell it out for you: Don’t let the fear of what others might think stop you. 
 
I can’t tell you the number of times someone told me I should “go get a real job” or asked me “but how do you make money doing that?”
 
👎 The judgment was THERE. Alllll the time. 
 
But. I did it anyway (and you should too). 
 
🐶 And Olive living her best life on the deck reminded me how powerful that could be. 
 
So if you are thinking…
 
😶 I am not good enough. 
😶 It’s not the right time. 
😶 What will people think?
😶 The market is too saturated. 
 
✔️ I want you to think of Olive and her deck. 
 
I want you to remember that we only get one life. And we all deserve to do what we love, no matter how crazy other people think we are. 
 
Believe me, it’s worth it. 💛
