Recipe by Steve P.

The wholesome goodness of Grape Nuts Cereal make these muffins surprisingly good and quite flavorful. Wonderful bright sunny taste of orange too!

Tasty and good! Easy to put together. I used whole wheat flour, as I almost always do. The Grape Nuts almost disappeared; they just left a subtle texture which was very pleasant. With the Grape Nuts, total calories would be about 206 per muffin. Next time I will bake these at 375°F as the muffins were a little overdone after 20 minutes at 400°F. Also, these must be eaten fresh - well-wrapped leftovers for next days' breakfast were quite dry - I think the Grape Nuts continue to suck moisture out of the rest of the muffin.
