cinnamon maple cereal crumb muffins Guest post from Carissa of Pretty/Hungry I recently came to a point where the budgeter in me just couldn’t bear to throw away any more cereal crumbs! Week after week, I’d find myself at the bottom of another box of cereal with a good two inches of dust left over, and it bothered me to just toss all that in the garbage can. Now I realize that in the grand scheme of things, throwing away a few cereal crumbs is FAR from earth-shattering. But I just knew there must be some way to make good use of all that crunchy whole-grain goodness rather than just tossing it.
My family loves these simple muffins! They consist of only a few staple ingredients, making them extremely frugal and easy to make. They are also a lifesaver for those day-before-grocery-shopping emergencies where you really need something else to serve with dinner, but your cupboards are almost empty (of course, we’ve never had any of those moments at my house. Ha!). Or when you have you realize you have milk about to expire and are looking for a way to use it up.
I came across a recipe in a magazine recently for Ginger Biscuits with peaches that was simply calling my name. Seeing as how it is peach season and we love ginger, I thought we could not go wrong with this flavor combination. However, in order that everyone in our family could enjoy this summer treat, I decided to make it free of all the top allergens. This was a first-time recipe experiment for me, and oh boy! we were so pleased with the outcome! The ginger biscuits are wonderful for breakfast, as well, with a fruit jam spread on top.
I made this recipe for the first time yesterday. Considering that there are only a few pancakes left and I doubled the recipe intending to freeze most of them, I’d say these were a hit!
When Angela from The Coupon Project emailed me the link to her Cinnamon Scone Recipe, I immediately knew I wanted to try it! And I knew it would be the perfect addition to our Christmas Brunch.
