Banana Heart Muffins

It's basically a fact: muffins taste better when they're heart-shaped. And ingredients like brown sugar, cinnamon and Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch cereal don't hurt, either.

Total Time: 30 minutes



  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in large bowl; set aside. Mix Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch cereal and milk in another bowl; let stand 3 minutes. Stir in egg and oil; mix well. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. (Batter will be lumpy.)
  • Spoon batter into paper-lined medium muffin pan, filling each cup ⅔ full. Roll 12 (4-inch square) pieces of foil into balls. Tuck 1 between paper liner and side of each muffin cup to resemble heart shape.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 12 servings, 1 muffin each.
