Ruthie’s 6 Grain Muffins

Lazy Saturday? Why not whip up a batch of these delicious, healthy muffins? Using a granular cereal gives these muffins a bit of bite while adding a beautiful flavor—not to mention the nutritional boost! Balancing the whole grains in the cereal by using white flour, keeps them light and delicious. Swap out the white flour for whole wheat pastry flour if you want a dense, whole grain muffin. If you don’t have our 6 Grain Cereal on hand, any whole grain granular cereal (like our Mighty Tasty or 10 Grain Hot Cereal) will do in a pinch.

Jenn says:

This is not a good recipe at all. I tried it with the 10-grain cereal and followed all directions closely, and in the final product, the grains were under-cooked, making them crunchy. The muffins are also too salty. I added some blueberries and one mashed banana but they could not save these muffins. The cereal itself is also highly unappealing. Very disappointing, I’m sorry to say!

Hi Jenn,

I’m so sorry to hear that. I’ll let our recipe developer know, perhaps there is something off with this version.

Kyle says:

I made these, they are really good! Perfect for the homemade blackberry jelly my wife whipped up. Anybody calculate the nutrition information yet? Calories and protein per muffin would be nice to know.

We’re so glad to hear that. We’ll get you the nutrition facts soon.
