In our house cereal is food royalty. It’s breakfast, it’s a snack, and on those rare occasions it might even end up being dinner. One of our favorite brand of cereal is Post. Post Cereal has something for the whole family. With their wide variety of options, everyone is sure to find one (or ten) cereals they love.

Grape Nut Crunch Muffins a simple, healthy breakfast or anytime muffin recipe


I love that cereal can be used in so many ways. It goes way beyond a bowl and milk. Over the past year I started playing around with cereal recipes. Today I want to share one of our latest favorites with you.

On a recent trip to Wal-Mart I stocked up on Post Cereals. Not only was our stash running low, but they currently have new packaging that incorporates the new SING movie. There is also a SING National Sweepstakes going on, giving you a chance to win $100,000 or free movie tickets.

Entering the sweepstakes is easy! All you have to do is enter the codes that are printed inside the box into the sweepstakes website! The more you buy, the better your chances are to win.

With our cereal stash replenished, I decided to try something new, cereal muffins. I like to keep breakfast on hand for everyone, no matter what their schedule looks like. Russ is a grab and go kind of guy so having things he can eat on the run is important. I reached for the Grape Nuts to create a muffin with lots of flavor and texture. I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Our Pretty Little Girls

These muffins are the perfect breakfast or any time treat (like before heading to the theater to watch Sing). They are sweet, but don’t have loads of sugar in them. They are soft but they have a little bit of crunch too. They are also kid approved,  passing inspection by one very picky little girl. We will definitely be making these on repeat.

Are you excited to go see Sing in theaters?!

  • So healthy!! I feel like my body is craving a bit more healthy at this time of year. I just made a huge batch of oatmeal for the same reason!

    • I LOVE to have baked oatmeal around in the cold weather. I wonder if I could add some Grape Nuts to that :P.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    I would never think to use cereal for muffins, you’re a genius friend! These look and sound super yummy!

    • I’ll take a compliment like that any day. Thank you!

  • I am going to add these to my must try meals for Christmas break. I’m not one to think outside the box for breakfast much but these seem simple enough and I love that they are good for busy mornings on the go.

    • Yup a few seconds in the microwave and tada, good as new. I love that they are pretty healthy too…. outside of all the butter I put on them :P.

  • I love, love, love Grape Nuts! These look super good. There is this kind of ice cream back East that I had once and it had Grape Nuts in it, that was so good 🙂

  • This is brilliant! I’ve never even tried Grape Nuts, but now I want to so I can make these. They sound really great, Beth!

    • Thanks friend. They are really tasty and pretty healthy too!

  • Grape Nuts remind me of my dad. He loves those!

    • I like them as an add in on my yogurt!

    • Whitney Jordan

      I’m thinking Grape Nuts must be a go to cereal for dads because my dad loves them, too 🙂

  • Yum! I seriously use to love eating grapenuts especially added to yogurt! Haven’t had it in years.

    • That is one of my favorite ways to eat them too!

  • Meghan Flinn

    We are huge fans of muffins and these look great! I especially love the extra grape nuts on top!

    • I’m a muffin lover too! These were really fun and different. I’ll make them again.

  • Whitney Jordan

    My parents love Grape Nuts so I should make these for them over Christmas break 🙂 I would have never though to add some crunch to muffins.

    • You totally should! They were a lot of fun and unlike any other muffin I’ve made. The crunch was an unexpected surprise for sure!
