These were pretty good! My family didn't care for the cereal itself, so I thought this was such an awesome way to get rid of the uneaten cereal. I tasted the batter and it seemed a bit bland, so I added a pinch of salt and about a teaspoon of cinnamon. I used 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour and lowfat buttermilk. I folded in some blueberries as well, because even though there are dried strawberries in the cereal, it wasn't enough in quantity for our tastes. The end result was a nicely textured muffin with a very subtle berry flavor, kind of like a softer version of a bran muffin. My only real problem were with the dried bananas in the cereal. Once these cooked within the muffin they turn into these kind of wet, slimy blobs - very unappealing - so we just all ate around them. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups Strawberry Berry Burst Cheerios
  • 1 14 cups whole wheat flour (the recipe calls for AP flour but I wanted to use whole wheat) or 1 14 cups all-purpose flour (the recipe calls for AP flour but I wanted to use whole wheat)
  • 13 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 34 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup banana, mashed, very ripe (2 to 3 medium)
  • 23 cup nonfat milk (recipe calls for skim milk but I wanted to use non-fat milk)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg white


  1. Heat oven to 400°. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
  2. Crush cereal. Stir together cereal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  3. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.
