Great recipe. Loved these muffins. They have a great flavor and the consistency is alright. The first time I made them, they were a little gritty. I just crushed the cereal up into finer pieces and I haven't had that issue since. I recommend doing that if you don't like gritty. But great recipe all in all. Super moist and very tasty. I think I will get creative in the future and try making these with different fruits. Just excellent.Gets an A+ in my book.
