Cheerios Banana Muffins

  Hello friends, how is it going?  I just came back after a long needed walk with my son.  We went to a park nearby, he played and I walked around.  It gave us both some fresh air and exercise.  Blessings of a summer morning.  We came home and enjoyed this delicious muffin.  This one is quite an interesting mix you will agree with me.  Read on if you don't believe.  Cheerios and banana; a breakfast by itself go in to make another, muffin.  Yeah! I thought incredulous too, but it's true. 

  As cliched as it may sound the truth is I have had Cheerios hatching in my pantry for a while.  It came easy, free from our local supermarket.  However, it's proved not so easy to feed my family.   Therefore, I had them all fooled with this ingenious concoction of mixing it up to make some spongy, melt in the mouth muffin.  The recipe is courtesy the 'Cheerios' site.

Cheerios Banana Muffins

Ingredients:

Cheerios/ Any plain cereal- 1 cup
All purpose flour- 1 1/4 cup
Baking powder- 2 tsp
Brown Sugar- 1/4 cup
Granulated white sugar- 2 Tbsp
Mashed ripe bananas- 1 cup( 2 or 3 bananas)
Raisins- 1/2 to 1 cup
Walnuts (optional)- 1/2 cup
Milk- 2/3 cup
Vegetable oil- 3 Tbsp
Egg,lightly beaten- 1
Pure vanilla extract(optional)- 1 tsp

Cheerios Banana Muffins

Method:

1.Preheat the oven at 400 degree F and line the muffin pan with paper liners or grease it.
2.Crush the cereal.Stir this with the flour,baking powder and sugar.
3.Throw in the other ingredients ,one by one and mix well using a wooden spoon.Do not overdo this step.
4.Spoon into the prepared muffin pan and bake for 17-18 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Notes:

1.I haven't tried this with other cereal,but I guess it should work fine with the normal corn flakes and other plain cereal.
2.This recipe will give you 12 medium sized muffins.
3.You could replace the white sugar with brown sugar for a more healthy muffin.
