This is from the makers of Red River Cereal. A healthy muffin that is a bit different. I started making these because I needed to get rid of a box of Red River Cereal (don't like it)-good in these!

I made these muffins using grapenut cereal instead of Red River. I added flax seed to the mix. I used raisins and dried cherries. I really enjoyed the taste, texture, and look of these muffins. Thanks!

these were tasty, i used spelt flour and added a little vanilla and used brown sugar. i soaked the raisons with the cereal and bran to reconstitute them (adding a little more water). the cereal was still quite raw in the finished product and that was ok but maybe even more water was needed (i actually soaked it overnight so i know it was long enough). next time i'll cook them at 350 instead. mine were done at exactly 18 min but a little overdone on the edges. but over all a super yummy muffin, i loved the oats in them, and a nice way to use up red river. thanks

I used Sunny Boy cereal which is very similar to Red River cereal but has flax seed in it. I used 3/4 c sugar and 3/4 c Splenda and blended the oats with the flour, sugar, Splenda and baking soda and salt. Used oil like other reviewers which I blended with the milk and egg and made a well in the dry ingredients and mixed in the soaked cereal and wet ingredients. Used 2 cups of dried cranberries which I mixed in last. Next time I will try these with applesauce instead of the oil. These were very nice and I will make them again!
