Back To School is that crazy time, when meals are forgotten and we’re all about getting the kids ready, buying last minute items and making sure our children have all they need to start a new year successfully.
For us, it’s all about planning ahead, especially when it comes to breakfast because it’s my son’s least favorite meal!
So, I created a couple ways to incorporate cereal, which is his favorite breakfast option, into other recipes, giving him the best of both worlds and a super special start for his first week!
Today I will share one of my favorite creations, Banana Nut Muffin with Kellogg’s® Krave(TM) Cereal as a topping! It was such a huge hit, he already asked me when I’ll make it again!
This super easy recipe can be made the night before!
Banana Nut Muffin With Kellogg’s® Krave(TM) Cereal Topping
Banana Nut Muffin Mix
3/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
4 Tbsp of Hazelnut Spread
1 cup of Krave(TM) Cereal
Preheat the oven 400F
Mix the Muffin Mix with water, oil and eggs until blended.
Pour into Muffin cups, 1/4 cup each.
Bake for 15/ 20 minutes until golden brown
Cool for 5 minutes
Spread Nutella on top of muffins and add Crushed Krave(TM) Cereal and pour it over the muffins and serve with a glass of milk!
Delicious, nutritious and super easy to make!
I also use other cereal options like Kellogg’s® Apple Jacks® Cereal for a twist!
Hope you try it out! Also, I wanted to give you some awesome coupons to make your life even easier! Just click, print and use them!
I used a gluten and dairy free muffin mix, but you’re welcome to use your favorite one! As long as your family loves it and it’s super easy to make, any mix is fine with my recipe!
The sky is the limit! Can’t wait to hear what you think about our recipe!
As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
These look amazing. I love the Krave cereal topping. It looks like it would add some great texture & crunch!
Thanks for sharing… pinned for later 😀
These muffins can be a good homey gift, or sell it for kids savings 🙂
You are good at baking 🙂

My kids love Banana Nut muffins. I am going to have to try this out, what a fun combo!

As a parent of two picky eaters and not a lot of time to prepare breakfast, this banana muffin will definitely help. With nuts, it’s even better. Good thing that my kids are not allergic to nuts.

This is perfect since I am running out of ideas for kids to school. I will definitely try this!
Yum! These look tasty muffins.They are definitely a perfect back to school snacks.
They look so delicious that I think they would work anytime of the day, maybe with a coffee for a mid morning break?
This looks so good and definitely quick and easy for those morning rushes! My son loves bananas, however I have never given him banana nut bread before. I’ll definitely be trying this one out and seeing what his verdict is! Thanks for sharing!
Looks delicious and not complicated to prepare. I will save your post for this weekend 🙂 love it!
That looks and sounds like a yummy back to school breakfast! I bet our kids would be all over it!
These look so yummy and I’m loving how easy they are!
Banana Nut Muffin with Kellogg’s Kave cereal sounds delicious and a great breakfast idea for everyone. I have not tried Krave cereal but will have to get some for this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This sounds like a very good recipe. I would try it minus the icing. I don’t like too many sweets in the morning. It gives me an upset stomach.
This looks ridiculously delicious. I am sure I would love to make a batch of these. I really wish my daughter would love banana muffins though. It’s just sad.
These look more like a great snack or even party food so who wouldn’t like them for breakfast.
Absolutely love this idea! A great way to make kids eat their breakfast. I need to try this soon.
I just made banana muffins the other day myself because my husband is always coming home with bananas and most end up getting too ripe. I cannot get that man to stop buying bananas, lol.
This would be so easy to grab on the way out the door on a busy morning. I love that you mixed breakfast with a little bit of sweet! Treats like this can make the morning a lot better.

This is one awesome breakfast to jumpstart your day! I love banana nut muffins with a tall glass of cold milk, but your recipe made my favorite level up to an all new high!
I love the sound of easy breakfast for picky eaters. It’s really difficult to get my daughter to eat anything and breakfast before school is a real hassle. But she loves Nutella and bananas so this recipe is a must try for me.
Two of my favorite things are banana nut muffins and Nutella! These look so good! My mom would love this for breakfast. I will make them for her.
Easy and delicious are both requirements for me to make anything these days. Looking at the recipe, I will enjoy this. (Maybe enough I won’t be sharing!)
I am not crazy about bananas on their own, but I do really enjoy them in baking! Banana nut muffins are one of my favourites!
This looks exactly like what my kids love to eat for breakfast. And we LOVE Krave cereal!
Haha! What a sneaky way to get him to eat breakfast. I’m all about cupcakes and that’s exactly what this looks like… but healthier!
Any dessert is always a hit at home. I am sure this recipe will be a favorite! It looks so delicious!
Oh wow! That looks amazing! Now that’s what I call a SWEET breakfast. I’m going to have to try and make this!
This definitely watered my mouth.
Omg these look sooo delicious… I wanna have it right away 😀
These muffins look awesome. I wouldn’t mind having a couple right now. And yes, they look super easy to make.
OH my kids would LOVE these!!!!! What a fun way to use cereal, so much better than in just a bowl of milk!
Banana Muffins are one of my favs to make and enjoy. But you added chocolate which will put them over the top. Sharing

What an interesting idea, I haven’t seen frosted muffins before. We’re not big on Nutella but I know many that are that wouold likely enjoy.
I love banana muffins but never thought to top them that way. What a great idea! I bet my little one will love these. (me too!)
I will use your toppings no for some different muffins. Grandkids going love the Nutella frosting
Not my children’s type of breakfast but that looks delicious! I know a child who love this though.

What a fabulous breakfast idea! My kids will wake up early for this!
These muffins look so delicious!! I need to whip up a batch right now! Love the flavours
Hmm.. I feel inspired to do something like this. Thank you for the idea, it will work for a super tasty breakfast for me too! 🙂
Who wouldn’t love these for breakfast!? I think I’d win best mom of the year in my kid’s eyes if I made these. Also helps that they sound amazing!
These are a great idea for my BBQ this weekend. I have been looking for some dessert ideas. I will have to make a few batches tomorrow. I will have to resist eating them all before the BBQ.
Banana nut muffins are one of my favorites. I have never tried topping them with Nutella and crushed Krave cereal. It is such a fantastic idea. I will have to give this recipe a try on the weekend. I am sure they will be a big hit.
My son would have loved these for breakfast. He likes anything sweet and topped in hazelnut spread would have been even better,
That is a very clever way to use cereal and it’s even better that it’s really easy to make! They look really good even for us adults.

My husband is long past schooling but I can guarantee he’d love the banana nut muffins! I definitely will be trying these myself!
Well a school day breakfast doesn’t get any easier, fun or delicious than this!
Oh my goodness yes please, how absolutely delicious do they sound and they are easy as well! What’s not to love!
Oh this is such a good idea! I know I’d be excited to have one of these muffins in the morning. The Krave was a nice touch.
Mmm, I’d be happy having this muffins for breakfast. They look so delicious!
WOW, these look great and also look like the perfect way to get kids to eat there breakfast and with adding cereal in. LOVE.
Those muffins look really yummy! I’ll bet the kids would love those. Banana muffins are always a hit.

I remember the chaos of the first few days of school! Trying to figure out clothes to wear, getting the kids to eat something-anything-before they went out the door. Back then it was stressful. Now, I look back, I would do it all over again! I love the idea of healthy breakfast muffins like these!

These look like cupcakes! I’d definitely eat them for breakfast. Delish.
Same here I think they would make for a really great way to start the day as they would taste delicious as well as being hearty.
Thanks for the coupons. We bake banana nut bread and muffins a lot in our home. The kids like it and it’s a great way to get rid of that last banana or two on the verge of going bad. I’ve never topped them with chocolate. Sounds yummy!!!
I think these breakfast muffins would be a big hit with the kids before school. Muffins are fun to make and one of my go-tos. The kids enjoy them too. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
Those muffins sound delicious. I am all for easy breakfast that we can just grab and go as we eat on our way out the door.
You used a box mix for the muffins and made the nutella frosting. I was confused for a moment. Look delicious and I have one grandson who really like nutella.

Ahhhh! That looks so good! I love tasty muffins like this. These are the kinds of things that you could almost mistake for cupcakes! Om nom nom.
