Pin Attempt - Mmm... Baked Cinnamon Bites

Pin Attempt! I stuck with my goal. It was Sunday night and everyone in the house was craving something sweet, so I said, why not do a pin attempt? Problem was, we didn't have eggs and every recipe that didn't require them either needed yeast to rise or some other ingredient we didn't have on hand. So, I finally said too bad and went ahead and changed a few ingredients in a recipe found and the results were a success!! (Chef in the making!!) We decided to make the Scrumptious Baked Cinnamon Breakfast Bites from Oh My! Sugar High. But, we had to substitute a couple of ingredients... here's the recipe I have now created:

Baked Cinnamon Bites


1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup shreddies cereal, coarsely crushed (originally called for crisp rice cereal)
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup becel buttery margarine (originally called for butter-flavored shortening)
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted (I used margarine again)

Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Mix flour, crushed cereal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl.


Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add milk and stir until just moistened.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls.
Mix cinnamon and remaining sugar in bowl.
Drop balls in melted butter and roll in sugar mixture.

Place balls in greased 8 or 9 inch round pan.
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.


Cool before eating and then ENJOY! This pin attempt was a success even with the substitution of ingredients. I would love to try it with crisp rice cereal next time to see if we were missing out on anything. But, when you're in need of a sugar fix - this definitely did the trick!
