Cinnamon Breakfast Squares With Yogurt and Berries Recipe

My friends at Post Cereal sent me some really yummy cereal and a great recipe to inspire this post.

My family loves easy breakfast items! When I saw this recipe I knew we had to try it. My husband and son love Greek Yogurt, I love berries and we all love Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal. This was bound to be a hit in my house.


1 cup Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Cinnamon Crunch cereal
⅓ cup whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
½ cup nonfat milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter, cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 ounces Greek yogurt
3 cups fresh berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries)
Honey, for drizzling
Nutmeg or Cinnamon, for sprinkling

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly butter and flour an 8-inch square pan, or coat lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the cereal, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon. While stirring, slightly crush the cereal using the back of the spoon or rubber scraper; set aside.

In another bowl, beat eggs until well blended. Add milk, melted butter and vanilla, and mix well. Combine egg mixture with flour mixture. Pour batter (it will be thin) into prepared baking pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until it is set when lightly touched in the middle. Remove from oven and set on wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.

To serve, cut into 6 equal-sized bars and place on serving plates. Top each square with a dollop of Greek yogurt, surround with fruit, and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon and serve immediately.
