Cheerio Applesauce Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by superblondieno2

We have an abundance of cheerios at our house right now, so I had an urge to make something out of them. I found this recipe for muffins at very yummy! I didn't use the oil though because the muffins had all the applesauce in them. It still turned out good.

Delicious! I didn't have cheerios, but I wanted to use up some languishing boxes of cereal. I had some Cinnamon Toast Crunch, some Corn Pops, and some Reeses choc/pb cereal, which I combined to make two cups, then crushed. For applesauce, I used two single serving cups of strawberry-applesauce. Smelled great while baking, came out nice and tender, and so good! I'll probably never be able to duplicate the exact ratio and type of leftover cereals, but I will definitely keep this recipe close at hand.
