I also like to make these with the chocolate malt-o-meal & add chocolate chips. Big hit with my daughter & husband!
Today at the supermarket I experienced another nostalgic episode when I spotted a box of 'Malt-o-Meal' on the shelf. Bought a box, came home and baked a half batch. (I replaced half of the granulated sugar with brown sugar.) So good-it reminded me of a cross between a muffin and cupcake! Put a smile on our faces that's for sure. I liked mine with a little butter spread on top and ~Tasty Dish~ enjoyed hers with a slather of PB. I lightly sprinkled the top with some of the dry cereal for extra bit of crunch. Super easy to make, too! Thanks for posting! PS I think subbing chocolate flavored Malt-o-Meal is a great idea.
Was about to submit the same recipe when I found yours! These are really great muffins!
