Cinnamon Breakfast Bites Recipe
These breakfast bites taste a lot like a cinnamon sugar doughnut hole, but so much healthier since they are baked!
8x8-inch baking pan
Non-stick Cooking Spray
- 1⅓ cups flour
- 1 cup Rice Krispies Cereal coarsely crushed
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter flavored shortening
- ½ cup milk
- 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
- ⅔ cup sugar
- ⅓ cup butter melted
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, crushed cereal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Then cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in milk just until moistened. (The mixture is kind of dry, but if it's way too dry add an extra 1 teaspoon of milk so it's all barely moistened.)
Shape into 1 inch balls.
In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and 2/3 cup sugar.
Dip each ball into butter, then roll into cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Arrange in a single layer in an 8 x 8 baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
Bake at 420 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes.
Makes 2 dozen breakfast bites.
