I got this recipe from the Cheerios website. Hugh, my 2 year old, helped mommy by opening a second and unneeded box of Cheerios. Fearing that they would go stale and not necessarily wanting to make "treats" with them I opted for trying this recipe instead. They turned out good and the kids loved having warm muffins for breakfast for a change. I loved that it was quick to mix and toss in the oven.
2 cups Cheerios cereal (where they say you get the "oats"-okay its a stretch don't you think?)
1 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mashed very ripe banana's (2 t0 3 medium)
2/3 cups milk
3 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 egg white
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or greased bottoms only of muffin cups.
Crush cereal. In large bowl, stir together cereal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.
Sprinkle muffin with powdered sugar just before serving.
**My kids preferred butter or honey.
For High Altitude (3500-6500 ft.) Heat oven to 425 degrees.
