Cheerios are a popular breakfast cereal that can also be used in cooking. Before you throw away leftover Cheerios, consider creating recipes to use them. There are many ways you can incorporate Cheerios into every meal of the day, not just breakfast. You might even want to purchase Cheerios exclusively to make certain recipes.
Things You'll Need
Substitute Cheerios in recipes you already have that require other types of cereal. Use the same amount required in those recipes. For example, make Cheerios treats using the Rice Krispie Treat recipe. Instead of using 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal, use 6 cups of Cheerios (see Resources).
Grind or crush Cheerios into a flour and substitute it for a portion of the white flour in any recipe. Examples of recipes include cookies, muffins, quick breads, or cakes (see Resources).
Use crushed Cheerios instead of crushed corn flakes to make oven-baked crispy breaded chicken or chicken parmesan (see Resources).
Thread Cheerios onto a string to make edible necklaces, bracelets or Christmas tree garland.
