Make these easy Grape Nut Muffins for on the go snacking or breakfast. Made with grapenuts cereal and berries with good for you ingredients.
I love breakfast! Ever since I was first pregnant years ago, I pretty much wake up thinking of food. And now that I have little ones, everyone loves breakfast, we don’t do much around here until we have eaten!
Grape-nuts are a family favorite hit around here…which is why I love this healthy Grape Nut Muffin recipe, our favorite cereal… all.day.long!
These muffins are extra healthy because they use whole wheat flour and applesauce instead of oil! You can find my recipe for homemade applesauce here.

Cereal is not just for breakfast anymore. You can pop a couple in your bag and head out the door. Or, if you eat breakfast at home, these make great snacks throughout the day. These muffins are great anytime you need a healthy pick me up. Over the weekend my boys just went crazy for these tasty treats.
