Banana Bread with Cereal

This is a moist banana bread packed with a tropical flavor that requires no additional effort to achieve and then topped with a glaze and colorful cereal pieces.

Every bite is packed with fun flavors, colors, and sweetness. If you love bananas and cereal then this fruity pebbles recipe should be right up your alley.

Even better is that you can use up the leftover cereal at the bottom of the bag that no one wants to touch (it happens at your house too, right?) Once baked, the cereal doesn’t feel stale but instead gets a brand new take on life and a new chance to be reborn as something delicious.

Tips for making banana bread with Fruity Pebbles

When making this easy banana bread recipe you could (if desired) add up to 1 additional cup of Fruity Pebbles into the banana bread. adding in one cup more would change the flavor for a stronger Fruity Pebbles taste and add even more color to every slice.

You can choose to do this or not, personally, I feel that 1 cup is perfect but with this recipe being pretty versatile there’s no reason not to try it in different ways and see what tastes best to your own tastebuds.

FAQ’s about cereal banana bread

How long is Fruity Pebbles banana bread good for?

If you keep the banana bread well covered or in an airtight container at room temperature, you can expect it to last about 3-5 days and still taste great. Do note that the cereal on top may become a bit stale as the bread ages.

Can I freeze Fruity Pebbles banana bread?

Yes, you can freeze this bread but if you do it then I recommend not adding the glaze and Fruity Pebbles on top until after the bread has thawed. This will keep it tasting great without any glaze-thawing issues.
