I was looking through The Chew website today and I came across an interesting recipe for muffins with Cheerios in the batter. The only other cereal I’ve ever used in a muffin recipe was All Bran for a Carrot Apple muffin, which was also very good. This recipe has very few ingredients and took no time to make. This is always good for night time baking. I had good reviews from my critics! I bought silicon muffin cup holders which you can re-use. They work great and are easy to clean. Good for the environment.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups of Cheerios
1 1/4 Whole wheat flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup ripe bananas
2/3 cup skim milk, almond milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 egg

TOPPING
1/4 cup oats
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp cane sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp butter
Pinch of sea salt

DIRECTIONS
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12 cup muffin tray. Put cereal in a baggie and crush it with a rolling pin. Place cereal in bowl and add whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Mix with a spoon. Add bananas, milk, vegetable oil and egg. Mix until blended. In a separate small bowl mix topping ingredients all together to form a crumble. Scoop batter into muffin tray and sprinkle 1 tsp of topping per muffin. Place in oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. Enjoy!
