Easy Breakfast Cereal Muffins

Last week as I made Breakfast Bran Muffins, I wondered if changing the kind of cereal would ruin the recipe. I happen to have a small amount of Special K with Strawberries cereal on hand so I decided to give it a try. I love the Breakfast Bran Muffins because they are not loaded with sugar and yet they are delicious. They have a great texture and still taste good after 3 days. I whipped these up in no time! They turned out perfect! If you want to change your breakfast menu, give these a try!
