A breakfast food that is used to make another breakfast food?
All of the nutrition of your favorite healthy breakfast cereal without the hassle of preparing a bowl with milk?
Sounds crazy right? Get ready, today we are making cereal muffins!
Cereal with milk is a healthy, delicious and nutritious breakfast but sometimes there just isn't time. What to do? Use your favorite cereal to replace some of the flour in a basic muffin recipe!
You can use whatever cereal you have on hand as long as it's healthy. I have made this recipe with raisin bran in the past but today I used Banana Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch.
Why? Well frankly because I didn't like it as a cereal but couldn't bring myself to throw it away.
Ready? Let's go!
