Recipe: Banana Oat Muffin (Cheerios Cereal Base)

Updated on March 9, 2014
4 stars for Banana Oat Cheerios Muffins

I love cereal, bananas and muffins. So why not combine them all into a muffin? I was excited to see all of these recipes flying around on the Internet and in cookbooks for this specific Banana Oat Cheerios Muffins. I decided to give them a try to to document my baking experience with pictures. This recipe is very easy to make, takes a short time to bake and is great to have for breakfast or as a snack.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Cheerios Cereal, Original Cheerios
  • 1 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Bananas, mashed, very ripe
  • 2/3 cup Skim Milk
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Egg White

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 regular size muffin cups with cooking spray or grease bottoms only if muffin cups.
  2. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor). 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.
  3. Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Use a toothpick to test if completely baked.

Taste & Impression

This recipe was taken verbatim from a Pillsbury Cookbook. Nothing was altered or changed. So what I will describe is my impression of how these muffins tasted.

  • Not salty at all. Great for people who want to watch their sodium intake.
  • Not at all sugary. In fact, it *could* use a bit more sweetness or flavor. But I'm not saying that there isn't any flavor at all here. The banana provides the natural sweetness of this muffin.
  • Really subtle banana flavor. This is good (or bad) depending how you think of it. You may want to add a little more bananas for more flavor.
  • As a suggestion, perhaps adding cinnamon in the mix would give it an interesting twist. You may want to try this.

All in all, I liked this muffin. I would definitely make it again and make some alterations to the recipe for my needs and taste. I recommended it to anyone who wants an easy muffin recipe that doesn't require a ton of ingredients and a short bake time.
