Cream of Wheat Berry Muffins

Cream of Wheat is a North American hot cereal that I loved eating as a child. During one of my visits to Canada, I brought a box back with me, but I never finished it. I now find that eating Cream of Wheat for breakfast doesn’t keep me full, so I decided that I should use up the cereal before it goes off. Thus, I went on the search for a muffin recipe! This recipe for Cream of Wheat Berry Muffins is adapted from: Gourmandize.

A note on Cream of Wheat Alternatives:

If you can’t get a hold of the brand Cream of Wheat, look for wheat semolina porridge or semolina flour. You could also try a baby cereal made from wheat.

This is a quick and easy recipe that makes fantastic breakfast muffins. The berries are optional, but I think they add a nice flavour and beautiful jewel tones. I used a mix of frozen blueberries, cranberries, and raspberries.

    Loved these! Used unbleached flour, honey instead of sugar and frozen local blueberries. Sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top before baking at 395 degrees F.
