Banana Crunch Muffins (w/grape Nuts)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Shels

We were recently in PA and I picked up a box of Grape Nuts Cereal at Wegmans. It was MUCH cheaper than back here at home! I have wanted to make muffins using Grape Nuts for a long time, and am glad I found this one on the website!

This is a dense, heavy muffin, so if you are looking for something light and fluffy, this one is not for you. But, I made them with the expectation they would be as such and really enjoyed them. My husband's favorite cereal is Grape Nuts, and he enjoyed them as well. A previous reviewer added a cup of nuts, but, although I love nuts, I wouldn't consider adding them to these muffins as that would make them far too heavy to bake accurately. The only yogurt I had was fat-free (vanilla) and I was afraid the recipe wouldn't benefit from using the fat-free version, so I decided to use 1/4 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup canola oil. That is the only change I made, except I only ended up with 10 muffins (which I baked for right at 30 minutes). Thanks for sharing the recipe!
