READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Irmgard

I found this recipe many years ago in Chatelaine magazine. It is a great way to use up dry cereal. I have made it with rice krispies, Honey Bunches of Oats and granola and each time they turned out great.

Used whole wheat white flour, buttermilk, fruit cocktail instead of chopped apple, and added 1/2 cup applesauce for moistness.
