This New Year Big G has released several new cereals including Multi Grain Cheerios Dark Chocolate Crunch, Nature Valley Protein Granola in Cranberry Almond, Chocolate Toast Crunch and Fiber One Protein in Maple Brown Sugar and Cranberry Almond.
I have already seen these in stores and I can tell you my kids loved the dark chocolate crunch cheerios!
We were sent a box of Big G goodies to review including BFAST drinks which have been reformulated and now have updated packaging. Also sent were a few recipes using these products. I made the Cranberry Almond Granola Muffins for my family to have.
from Betty Crocker, makes 12 muffins
1 cup fat-free (skim) milk1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup fat-free egg product or 2 egg whites
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 3/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped (I used craisins)
1/2 cup Nature Valley® cranberry almond protein granola
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Coarse sugar, if desired
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or place paper baking cup in each muffin cup.
In large bowl, beat milk, oil, egg product and almond extract with spoon. Stir in flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Fold in cranberries and granola.
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (cups will be full). Top with almonds and coarse sugar.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan. Cool on cooling rack.
