Leftover Cereal Muffins

Do you ever have just a little bit of oatmeal, cream of wheat, or cocoa wheats leftover after breakfast? One thing you can do with it is add it to your favorite pancake batter tomorrow or you can make these simple muffins. Let me warn you ahead of time- this is a VERY basic recipe. You really will need to add something yummy to it to make them tasty. Without additions, this recipe will taste simple like dinner rolls or biscuits. I’ll give you some tasty addition suggestions at the end.

The Recipe:

1 c. cooked leftover cereal (oatmeal, farina, etc)
1/2 c. milk
1 egg
2 Tbl melted butter
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar (or more)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Combine the wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately and then fold them together. Bake at 400^ for 25-30 min.

Now- for a sweet muffin, you could:

  • add some lemon flavoring and extra sugar or 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup. When they come out of the oven, dip the tops in melted butter and sugar/cinnamon combination
  • add some chopped apple, cinnamon, and make a streudal topping to sprinkle on before baking (butter, flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal)
  • If you have leftover Cocoa Wheats- add an extra Tbl or 2 of baking cocoa. For every Tbl of cocoa you add, add an additional 3 Tbl of sugar. You could place a couple mini marshmallows or chocolate chips in the center of each muffin for a surprise too.

For a savory muffin, you could:

  • Add 1 tsp of dill weed and some green onion and extra salt and a little pepper
  • Chopped onion, 1/2 c. shredded cheese
  • Crumbled cooked bacon, onion, and cheese

Muffins are basic bread and you can add any kind of fill-ins to them. Don’t be afraid- go ahead and try them!!!! 03.gif
