Blueberries, Cinnamon and Cereal come together in these muffins. This breakfast recipe is all you need to make your mornings ROCK!


A recent trip to the Farmer's Market and I came home with THREE boxes of Blueberries. They are back in season and we cannot wait to feast on them! I am a big fan of berries, especially blueberries. I always make delicious recipes around this time of the year using them.

This year my first blueberry recipe is a breakfast special. I combined my love for these berries with the morning cereal and came up with this recipe. Whenever I have blueberries in my recipe, I like to add either lemon or cinnamon. These ingredients make a perfect combination with the berries. So this recipe has it all; cereal, blueberries and cinnamon!


Breakfast, the most important meal of the day should be healthy, yummy and yet easy to make. To combine all these features, I like to serve egg recipes, muffins or some Indian breakfast each morning. Muffins are my favorite; being a grab-and-go option and they double as a quick evening snack too. Every family deserves a breakfast that is packed with flavorful goodness.

Apart from the Farmer's Market blueberries, I also got a box of Post Cinnamon PEBBLES™ from Walmart over the last weekend. The Cinnamon PEBBLES™ is a crispy rice cereal with the perfect combination of cinnamony sweetness. The flavor was amazing and I HAD to use that to make my muffins. This cereal is the latest way from PEBBLES™ to make your mornings rock.



I used them to give the required crunch in the muffins. Apart from the cereal, all you need is flour, sugar, buttermilk and blueberries. This recipe has no butter, no eggs and needs no preparation. The muffins are yummy and the crunch from the Post Cinnamon PEBBLES™ is my favorite!





When I am not making something different from the cereal, I add it to a bowl of chilled milk and we enjoy the cinnamon flavored cereal. Starting the day with the full-blown flavor of PEBBLES™ cereal does make amazing things happen!



Have you tried this yet? Go grab a box of this and POST Shredded Wheat from Walmart. Their NEW flavors are ready to inspire your next pursuit and perfect for adults. And yes, head here to find more inspirations using Post Cinnamon PEBBLES™ and other POST Cereals.


Variations

Coming to the recipe of the muffins, here is what I LOVE about them. These are super easy to make, are eggless and do not have any butter in them. Made from buttermilk and all-purpose flour, these can be made with wheat flour too. The result will be slightly dense muffins, but the flavor will be equally great!

I made these muffins with blueberries. The same can be made with other fruits like peaches, strawberries, apples or mangoes. Plus, adding nuts to them to them is also a great option.


If you are not a great fan of cinnamon, replace the cereal with POST Shredded Wheat of your choice. They make great muffins too!

Last, if you want a Vegan version, replace the milk with Soy or Almond Milk. Everything else is vegan friendly, so the recipe will easily turn to a vegan one!
The recipe below is perfect to make 12 muffins. If you want a smaller batch, halve the ingredients and make six of them!
