I do not think there’s anything wrong with tucking into a bowl of cheerios and milk as a snack, not for a moment. (Especially if you add some sliced bananas. Yum.) But this incredibly quick microwave-based recipe turns the cereal into a sweet and irresistible treat that you don’t milk or a spoon for. It takes just five minutes and it’s like having an entire bowl of tiny cinnamon-sugar donuts. Tiny donuts with some crunch, that is.
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups Cheerios or oat o’s cereal
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
In a large bowl, microwave butter until melted. Add vanilla and cereal and mix well.
Microwave once more, 3-4 minutes, stirring every minute. Add sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt, and toss to coat. Enjoy!
