The folks at Post Foods emailed me to let me know that Honeycomb Cereal was celebrating it’s 50th Birthday and they were celebrating!  I, of course, wanted to get in on the celebration too 🙂  And so did my daughter!

She woke up this past weekend at 7 a.m. and I heard her rustling around in the kitchen, so I peeked around the corner and I saw her getting out plates, fruit, and our Honeycomb cereal.  How adorable is that??!!

I couldn’t resist her cuteness, so we started on our muffins right away.  She helped with every step along the way, but her favorite parts were sprinkling on the topping and taste-testing Honeycombs while we waited for the muffins to finish up in the oven 😉

  1. This would be a great way to use up leftover cereal! I don’t see why you couldn’t use other cereal varieties.

    1. I would definitely say you could use whatever cereal is your favorite – be sure to let me know if you try it!

  2. Sigh. Oh my, do these sound good. I’m on a low-carb eating trend so these are totally out of bounds for me. But I can dream!

  3. What a cool idea. I bet you could use just about any cereal with these but I like Honeycombs. I might try with Fruity Pebbles too. That would look pretty.

  4. Thank you for the recipe. I am not a breakfast eater but my husband would like this one very much.

  5. This is definitely something different, I am not sure if i have the stomach to eat this cereal in my muffin but I bet my grandchildren would love one 🙂

  6. I think this is so fun! I love doing things together as a family, I can’t wait until my daughter gets a little older!

  7. Cute recipe! It’s a nice way to eat cereal when you get tired of the usual cereal in a bowl with milk. This is much more portable.

  8. These cereal muffins look awesome! I know my grandchildren will love them! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  9. I haven’t seen or heard about Honeycomb cereal since I was a kid…I didn’t know it was still available. Thanks for sharing via #FridayShareFest.

  10. I never thought of using cereal for muffins. My 2 granddaughters love Post Honeycomb cereal. I’ll let them help me make these muffins. Thanks for recipe.

  11. This is a good way to use cereal. The box usually gets stale before it’s eaten. Frosted flakes would be another good one to use.

  13. This would be great for my grandkids when they don’t want to eat breakfast or even for a snack. Thank you for sharing this great recipe

  14. I am on Nutrisystem right now, but this looks so much tastier than the food I have been eating.

  15. This is a wonderful way of getting families to not get tired of eating cereal all the time and it’s a good change and it looks really simple and good, I will try it

  16. Can’t wait you make this! I may just have to try cinnamon toast crunchave in it & see how that turns out 🙂

  17. Maybe I shouldn’t be looking at food recipes while I’m over here starving! honey comb is one of my favorite cereal! My kids would most def enjoy this as well!

  18. This sounds so wacky that I’ll bet it’s delicious! I like trying new recipes mixing unexpected ingredients.Thanks!

  19. I would’ve never thought to make cereal muffins,i know my nieces would love it.This would be something we can do together.
