Mini Cheerio Donuts
Mini Cheerio Donuts

These easy tasty little treats really do taste like donuts.  Using our Butter Olive Oil makes them healthier than using butter, and you can use less with the same resulting great flavor.  While I thought these would be a great kids snack, a contractor at my house took the extras home; he thought they'd be great with beer.

4 cups regular cheerios

1/4 cup Butter Olive Oil

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Place the cheerios in a microwave safe bowl.  Combine the Butter Olive Oil and the vanilla; combine thoroughly with the cheerios.  Bake in the microwave 2-5 minutes, stirring each minute until the cheerios are lightly toasted.

Meanwhile, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  When the cheerios are baked, cool for a minute and then toss with the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Allow to cool completely and serve.
