This is an adaptation from the Cheerios website, you can also substitute the 2 cups of oatmeal for 2 cups of Cheerios for a whole grain crunch!

Top Review by Jodi B.

I used 2 cups of oats which made the muffins too heavy. They were tasty but like doorstops. I also added about 3 tablespoons of splenda to the brown sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/3 cup of egg beaters instead of the egg white and 1/4 cup of flax seeds. Maybe I'll try this again using cheerios (not crushed) to see if they'll be lighter.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400°. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
  2. (Crush cereal if you used cereal instead of oats) Stir together oats/cereal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  3. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.
