Servings: 12 servings


  • 1-1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal, crushed, divided
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Mix flour, 1/2 cup of the crushed cereal, sugar, 2 Tbsp. of the coconut, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Tips and Suggestions

Size-Wise: Enjoy a serving of this tropical treat on a special occasion. Best of Season: Look for richly colored papayas that give slightly to palm pressure. Slightly green papayas will ripen quickly at room temperature. Make Ahead: A tropical twist on a classic summer favorite. Make the shortcakes ahead and take them to any summer outing. Top with fruit and whipped topping just before serving.
