My mom LOVES Cheerios and eats them for breakfast just about everyday. So when I saw a recipe for Cheerio Muffins here, I just couldn't resist! They're are SO healthy with APPLESAUCE instead of BUTTER and only a TINY bit of vegetable oil. I added some raisins and chopped walnuts because they're my mom's favorites and she ABSOLUTELY LOVED these muffins! What a way to start the morning right? :)

Ingredients: (6 muffins)

1 c Cheerios
3/4 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c apple sauce
1/2 c raisins
1/3 c milk
1 egg
3 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil
1/2 chopped walnuts

1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Prepare 6 muffin cups with paper lining.
3. Crush the Cheerios into very small pieces, leaving about 24 to sprinkle on top.
4. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the crushed Cheerios, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda, Stir in all remaining ingredients just until moistened.
5. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle whole Cheerios on top.
6. Bake about 20 minutes until golden brown. Use the toothpick test to see if they're done. A toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin should come out clean if they're finished. If batter sticks to the toothpick, give it another few minutes.
