  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in center of mixture, and set aside. Combine milk and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Stir in cereal; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Place carrot and water in a small saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat, and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until carrot is tender. Drain and set aside.
