Grape Nuts MuffinsGrape Nuts Muffins
Recipe DescriptionQuick and Easy to Stir Up. The GrapeNuts cereal gives it a nutty whole grain flavor. I've tried them with dates and then again with banana...yummy both ways! I'm gonna try canned pumpkin next. These are not a very sweet muffin, and I like it that way. You may like them better with more sugar if you like a sweeter muffin.Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:EasyTime Needed:Ingredients:1-1/2 cup flourServes:
3 tsp. baking power
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar (or more to taste)
3/4 cup GrapeNuts cereal
1 cup milk
3 Tbs. melted shortening or vegetable oil
Add-ons of choice (see note)Makes 12 muffinsDirections:Sift flour, baking power and salt; set aside.
In mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk till well blended. Stir in sugar, vegetable oil and GrapeNuts cereal. Add flour mixture. Stir till moistened. Add your choice of add-ons (although the original recipe didn't call for any add-ons!) Scoop batter (I use an ice cream scoop full) into 12-cup muffin pan (I line with muffin papers). Bake at 425F for 18-22 minutes or till tests done. Remove from pan and allow to cool.
NOTE: I've added chopped dates (about 1/2 cup) and I've added 1-1/2 medium bananas, mashed. both are equally good. You can also add raisins, nuts, fruit/berries, canned pumpkin (?). I also added some cinnamon to the banana ones.... and I'm sure you could add vanilla extract, etc. too.
I think these are better if they have a chance to cool first, but they are also good the next day heated for about 15 seconds in the microwave.

I want to try this recipe...thanks for posting it I don't eat many cereals but when I do I like grapenuts. I will try it just as soon as the weather gets a little cooler as baking makes the house heat up more and here in Texas we don't that.In the afternoons the ac runs constantly.
