Disclaimer: I was provided a box of cereal (YUM) and a gift card to share my experience!
If your family is cereal obsessed like mine, you might find yourself having a bowl of cereal for a snack, a bowl of cereal for breakfast, and we have TOTALLY been guilty of having a bowl of cereal for dinner! Of course, we can’t do this all of the time but when we do it is a total treat! So being able to use any of these Honey Bunches of Oats Recipes that we found and incorporate cereal in creative ways in our side dishes, deserts, and even main courses has made our summertime cooking more fun and a lot more creative!
I put together my favorite list of Honey Bunches of Oats Recipes that are for sure to make your tummy happy! Plus, a lot of these recipes are recipes your kids can help you make! A lot of them have very few ingredients! There are 16 different flavors of Honey Bunches of Oats so you can really be creative.

My favorite –> Fried Ice Cream Honey Bunches of Oats Recipe
“Fried” Ice Cream with Cinnamon-Chocolate Sauce: A crispy cereal shell around ice cream sounds amazing! This one is my favorite so far!
1 cup Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds Cereal
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Place cereal in a medium bowl and lightly crush with your hands or the back of a wooden spoon. Add coconut and chili powder and combine.
In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil. Add cereal and coconut mixture and fry until it is golden brown and toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.
Using a 1/2 cup measure, scoop ice cream and quickly form balls with your hands. Place on a small tray and immediately return to the freezer for at least 30 minutes or until the balls are firm.
Remove ice cream balls from freezer and quickly roll each ball in the cereal and coconut mixture. Return to freezer for at least another 30 minutes or until the balls are firm again.
When ready to serve, combine the chocolate chips, cream and cinnamon in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. If the chips are not completely melted, stir and microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
Serve each fried ice cream ball with a drizzle of cinnamon-chocolate.
Tips and Suggestions
Topping Substitute: Substitute 1/2 cup chocolate sauce for chocolate chips and heavy cream.
