Honey Bunches of Oaty Muffins are a playful twist on the usual bran cereal muffins, this time with an oat cereal.

Honey Bunches of Oaty Muffins is my recipe of the day with the blogging  group  Muffin Monday. We get together with Stacy Rushton on the last Monday of  the month.

Then we share whatever we have been baking.

I’ve been staring  down some breakfast cereals I had when  my  daughter was staying with us. She loves cereal so we  bought extra on sale. You know, the five boxes kind of sale?

Then she moved back  to Columbus and  the cereal remained. I forgot to  send  some  with her. And with me and Bill, the cereal  progress slowed.

So why not bake it up the same way I bake bran muffins? Hey. Great idea.

And there they are. I  daresay bran muffins never looked so good. And it finished up that box of Honey Bunches  of Oats with Almonds. I love it when my frugal  ideas turn into something  fantastic.

Try these muffins and  see for yourself. Your half-empty  boxes of cereal are yearning to be free…
