Breakfast Cereal Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by littleturtle

Wonderful breakfast, brunch, or mid-morning snack. This recipe is very versatile. Any kind of cereal works, and you can substitute dried fruit and/or nuts for part of the cereal. If using a cooked, hot cereal like oatmeal, combine with wet ingredients instead of dry.

What a great way to use up all those opened boxes of cereal that accumulate in my pantry. I used Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, which made for some very chewy muffins. I definitely will be using this recipe a lot. Thanks for the great idea.
