Honeycomb Morning Cereal Muffins Recipe

I love cereal. Kids love cereal. In fact, it’s more than just a breakfast staple around here. I’m actually more likely to eat a bowl of cereal as a late night snack than as an early morning meal. Most mornings you can find at least one of my kids eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast, though.

One of my longtime favorites has been Honeycomb.

With a sweet honey taste, 10 essential vitamins and minerals as well as 8g of whole grain per serving, Honeycomb makes a great way to start your morning. To celebrate Honeycomb turning 50 this year, we were sent a box of the cereal to enjoy and it’s just as good now as was back then. Safe to say, Honeycomb is aging well.
