These are super tasty! I'm always looking for easy breakfasts which I can grab and take with me. I've been making different kinds of muffins lately and these might be my new go-to.
Don't worry if the batter seems thick, it will bake up just fine!
Also, normally I'm lazy and try to make everything in one bowl for less clean up. This recipe you HAVE to have everything ready to go because if you don't the cereal will get really soggy and you will lose all the texture.

Savory Ham, Cheese, and Scallion Muffins
1 1/2 cups + 1/2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 cups Corn Flakes
1 1/4 cups milk (whatever kind you already have, I used Almond milk)
1 large egg, beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup cheese
1 scallion, sliced
1/2 cup ham, diced
Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; set aside.
Stir together egg, cheese, and oil; set aside.
Stir together ham, scallions, and 1/2 Tbsp. flour; set aside. (The flour will assure your ham doesn't all sink to the bottom).
Combine crushed corn flakes and milk in large mixing bowl.
Let stand about 2 minutes or until cereal is slightly softened. (DO NOT let corn flakes soak in milk any longer than 2 minutes!).
Add flour mixture, stirring only until combined.
Add ham mixture, stirring only until combined.
Portion batter evenly into 12 greased 2 1/2-inch muffin pan cups.
Bake at 400° about 18 minutes or until lightly browned.
