DH got on a mini-shredded wheat kick. I found it on sale, and stocked up. He lost his appetite for it. Now I'm stuck with about 4 1/2 boxes of mini shredded wheat. Any ideas of what I can do with it?

My younger DS did the same thing..... I found this recipe for Banana Raisin Wheat Muffins, maybe we can both use up the excess this way!

Banana-Raisin Wheat Muffins
Print Prep Time:15 min.Total Time:35 min.Makes:12 servings(1 muffin per serving)

1 cup Post Original Shredded Wheat Spoon Size Cereal 1 cup fat-free milk 1-1/4 cups flour 1 Tbsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 1 egg 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large) 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar 2 Tbsp. margarine, melted 1/2 cup raisins
PREHEAT oven to 400ºF. Mix cereal and milk in large bowl; let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Add egg, bananas, sugar and margarine to cereal mixture; mix well. Add flour mixture; stir just until moistened. (Batter will be lumpy.) Stir in raisins. SPOON evenly into 12 medium muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray, filling each cup 2/3 full. BAKE 20 min. or until golden brown. Let stand in pan 5 min. Remove to wire rack. Cool slightly.
Tips & Suggestions
How to Store Muffins: Keep leftover muffins fresh by freezing for up to 6 months. Cool muffins completely; place in freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Seal bag; freeze. Thaw at room temperature. If desired, reheat in microwave just until warmed. Nutrition Bonus: You're sure to "go bananas" for these satisfying low-fat muffins!

I'd use it as the oatmeal in an oatmeal sort of bread.

I'd drizzle melted butter over it, salt it and eat it like popcorn.

Whiz it in the food processor and use like bread crumbs.
Mix with butter, sugar and press into pie pan for a graham cracker type crust.
Fish or veggie coating (dip in egg first).
The butter and salt idea sounds good too!
Worst case......feed the birds.

Many thanks, all. What wonderful ideas for using up all this shredded wheat! GL, I never thought of searching for recipes. Some of those sounded really interesting. The office may be getting LOTS of treats!
