The mission from Allrecipes.com and Fiber One: Create an original recipe featuring Fiber One cereal.
Now I’ll admit, when the complementary boxes of Fiber One arrived in my mailbox, honestly I was less than excited. I’ve never been a fiber cereal kind of gal, and I seriously doubted I’d be able to come up with something that didn’t taste like, well, twigs.
But I was pleasantly surprised. The cereal is very crunchy, so it lends itself as a replacement for other grains. My first recipe attempt was a muffin and it was a total failure. The texture was just way off. But it wasn’t the cereal that caused the problem – they were way too wet.
I decided on my second attempt I’d try to make something crunchy. This is my second try at biscotti ever, too. So maybe we can call it beginner’s luck, but these turned out really well.
They’re crunchy and full of nutty flavor, and the honey and dusting of cinnamon sugar make them sweet enough for me but not super sweet. Mission accomplished!
