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.

Nice easy recipe to make with kids. Put the cheerios in ziploc baggies and let the pre-schoolers crush them! Healthy alternative!! Tasted good and even picky eaters tried them! Tried to put food coloring in them to make them pink for Valentines day but they came out brown inside after baking. We put some colored sprinkles on top, what kid can resist sprinkles??

These were an improvement on my old "clean out the pantry" cereal muffin recipe. They came out delicious and moist, even though I left out the oil. Keeper!

quick and easy to throw together plus I always have the items on hand. made them today for an after school snack and all 3 kids gave it a thumbs up. i didn't crush the cereal alot so they still had some crunch to them. I used multigrain cheerios since thats what i had. thanks for sharing.

These were a nice way to start out the morning. I used honey nut cheerios because that's what we had, so I cut the sugar down to 1/3 c. I used half white whole wheat flour and half all purpose, and they still rose perfectly! They were very light and fluffy. My only problem is that the cheerios dissolved while these muffins were baking. I was expecting a bit of a crunch, but they dissolved to leave a touch of honey flavor. Maybe next time I won't crush the cereal. Thanks for sharing!

These were really good, especially for being so healthy. I used apple cinnamon cheerios to boost the taste a bit and sprinkled a few extra cheerios on top before baking. All teenagers in the house liked them...that's saying something! Thanks!
