Breakfast Cereal Muffins

Breakfast Cereal Muffins created by Dine  Dish

Wonderful breakfast, brunch, or mid-morning snack. This recipe is very versatile. Any kind of cereal works, and you can substitute dried fruit and/or nuts for part of the cereal. If using a cooked, hot cereal like oatmeal, combine with wet ingredients instead of dry.

    Great way to use up cereals before they stale...and a quick breakfast option! I like to send my husband out the door with a muffin each morning, otherwise he won't eat. <br/><br/>Mine were a little flat, but I used a very granola-style cereal, so should have used more flour. I added a handful of blackberries to add some fresh fruit, and upped the sweeteners a little. I think the recipe could only be improved by adding some general guidelines for various types of cereals (IE - more flour if a denser cereal, soaking in milk to break down harder cereal components, etc) - but I'm very happy and will make this again!

    Very easy to make, I used Cocoa Raspberry Temptation...I understand to put salt with sweet (i get that) but if I make these again I will use half the salt. The salt flavor was overbearing the sweetness. Other then that I think they were good.

    Made this recipe for the first time today & they turned out REALLY salty. Not what I was expecting. I used Honey Bunches of Oats. If I make these again I will cut the salt in half, add some cinnamon & maybe some orange flat icing. Love the idea of using up left over cereal that's been in my pantry a while. Thanks for the recipe.

    I used Guardian cereal and they turned out great! Next time I am going to add some nutmeg and cinnamon.

    I used Captain Crunch and these turned out really gross. Couldn't even eat them.
