This simple to make banana bread filled with SPRINKLES makes for a FUN  way to start your day!

I’m SO excited to share this super fun Unicorn Banana Bread with all of you today! 🦄 If you follow me on Instagram, yesterday I posted a little behind the scenes of me making this bread.

Unicorn everything is super popular right now, and I’m kind of embarrassed that this is my first unicorn recipe. I mean, with the name Deliciously Sprinkled…the unicorn could be my mascot.

To make this Unicorn Banana Bread, I used my grandma’s famous banana bread recipe but rather than adding walnuts, I added SPRINKLES! I then topped the banana bread with vanilla icing and even more SPRINKLES!

This Unicorn Banana Bread is the perfect way to start your day, I mean how could you have a bad day when you have SPRINKLES for breakfast!


✓ BAKING TRICK: Want to know the trick to get the big, fluffy top!? Well, it’s easy, all I do is bake the banana bread at 375F for 15 minutes, then I REDUCE the heat to 350F and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes. I then let the bread completely cool before removing from loaf pan.

✓ DON’T LET THE TOP BURN: Don’t let the top of your bread BURN! About half way through baking this bread, make sure to check to see if the top of the bread is getting too brown and if it is just place a piece of aluminum foil over top of bread for the rest of the baking time to avoid burning the top of the bread.

✓ MAKE AHEAD: This bread freezes very well for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, place bread in refrigerator overnight to thaw. Then place the bread on your kitchen counter top for about 30-60 minutes to allow it to come to room temperature before slicing and enjoying.

✓ SPRINKLES: I love Sweetapolita’s new Sprinkle Shop! She has a TON of super fun sprinkles, like the sprinkles I used to make this banana bread.
