Cereal Muffin Recipe

Do your kids tend to abandon a box of cereal when the box is just about empty because they don't want the cereal crumbs in their bowl? I know mine do!

Other times, I buy new and different kinds cereal if I can get it free or really inexpensive by combining sales with coupons, but then my kids (and even I sometimes) won't eat it if we don't like it. And if the package is already open, I can’t just donate the box to a food pantry. So I got this recipe from my mother to make cereal muffins that we all enjoy:

Cereal Muffin Recipe
  • 2 cups cereal (you can use any kind, but bran cereals work best)
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup softened margarine (or butter)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins (or other dried fruit or nuts)

Add milk to cereal. Let stand until soft. Add egg and margarine. Beat well. Mix in flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Bake in muffin pan at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Yields about 12 muffins. Enjoy!
