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.

This is a very easy, forgiving recipe to play around with. I am trying to use up "its and bits, odds and sods" from my cupboards and fridge. I used buttermilk, brown sugar Splenda, Grapeseed oil, pear, and All Bran cereal. The muffins came out tasty, moist and dense...the pear being a particularly nice addition!! What a wonderful way to use up all those little ingredients that seem to be always present in the cupboards!!! Thanks for the posting...this recipe will definately become a favorite

I am always trying new cereal that is more healthy but the fact is I like sugary cereal that I try to force down w/ fresh fruit but never make it through the box. I have a Cure!!! I used this on a very very healthy ceral w/ no taste lots of bran and it turned out great. We didn't have an apple or pear on hand so we used 3/4 or 1cup of canned fruit cocktail and no dried fruit (didn't have). Next time I may try canned pears or an apple, and will try cranberries! Oh a must do both sugar/cinnamon combo on top and crushed cereal we used crushed cinnamon life so yummy! Thank You I enjoyed sharing w/ my 1.5 year old.
