  1. These muffins are so yummy that I made them twice in two weeks time. I used a brown sugar substitute, 3 very, very ripe bananas and dried cranberries. I shared the first batch with my in-laws and they loved them. I took the second batch to work and my co-workers loved them too. No one could believe that there were Cheerios in the muffins. Oh, I used the multi-grain Cheerios. The muffins had just the right amound of sweetness, are super moist and are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. I am going to make another batch, wrap them individually and freeze them so that I will always have breakfast even when I am in a hurry. Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Mom2Rose. I will be making these often in the future. Made for October 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.
  2. What a great lunchbox treat and a great way to use up some stale cereal. I subbed some mini choc chips for the raisins and the kids were stoked with these. Thanks for posting!
  3. Really good and healthy. Everyone was a fan in my house. My 3 and 1 year old each asked for seconds. Hubby said he would take this over banana bread with nuts any day. Will definitely be making again.
  4. These are so fast to whip up ! We have no Cheerios here so I used an alternative oat and bran cereal. I used sliced banana not mashed and sultanas and the result is great and will be terrific for the freezer and lunchboxes. I got 12 perfect muffins from this recipe.


  1. I doubled the recipe since people said so good; I used half multigrain & half honey nut Cheerios. I didn't want to throw away 4 egg yolks, so I used 2 egg whites & half mashed avocado for other 2 whites. Subbed about ¼cup applesauce for oil & used mixture dried cranberries & raisins. Oh & I didn't have buttermilk so put about 1½ Tbls lemon juice in 1?c milk. Made 24 muffins & baked for 20min.These things are ah-ma-zinggg!!! Very moist & awesome that they are pretty healthy!! 2 thumbs wayyy up!!
