When I was a kid, my mom used to make these on my BIRTHDAYS as a special breakfast treat and it was always so EXCITING to wake up on those mornings…hehe.

How to make breakfast muffins?
Mix cereal, peanut butter, melted chocolate and additional add-ins into a bowl. Mix everything together. Scoop mixture into a muffin pan. Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then, flip over the muffin pan and tap the back a few times and the muffins will fall out. Enjoy!
Now, isn’t that an easy recipe?
Most of the time, I see recipes for savory breakfast muffins (e.g. sausage breakfast muffins, egg and bacon breakfast muffin) but as you know, I have a sweet tooth and I would pick this sweet version over the savory version any day…hehe.
Here are some TIPS for making quick breakfast muffins:
- Peanut butter can be replaced with almond butter, cookie butter, cashew butter or even Nutella.
- White chocolate, milk chocolate, semisweet or dark chocolate can be used.
- Use the BEST quality of ingredients you can find since your recipe is only as good as the ingredients you use.
- I know there are many healthy breakfast muffin recipes out there but you can make these ones healthy too by using dark chocolate and pure peanut butter.
- Store leftovers in a sealed container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- Any cereal can be used but I recommend the Honey Maid S’mores cereal for Summer and Fall. This cereal is SOOOO good. It’s packed with marshmallows, chocolatey goodness and the delicious taste of graham crackers. You can find them at the Hy-Vee store! You can check out the store locator here.
