A yummy breakfast with customizable, easy pancake mix muffins– add whichever toppings you like! Perfect for families with busy mornings to make ahead and have at the ready. 

Pancake Muffins

We love an quick ‘n easy breakfast around here. Mornings with kids can be hectic. And everyone needs to eat, or else we deal with the mid-morning crankies– myself included. I’ve discovered the key to a delicious, wholesome breakfast served up fresh every morning is to batch cook when I have time (usually the weekends), and heat up some breakfast goodies on a daily basis.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE PANCAKE MUFFINS:

  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • Toppings suggestions: cinnamon/sugar, chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts

HOW TO MAKE PANCAKE MUFFINS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Next, mix together pancake mix, milk, eggs and ½ cup of maple syrup.
  3. Prep a mini muffin tin, then fill each cup ⅔ of the way full.
  4. Add 1 Tablespoon of toppings.
  5. Bake for 14 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool.

There are endless possibilities for toppings to add to these pancake muffins. You can add cinnamon sugar, milk chocolate chips, mini marshmallows or white chocolate chips. You can also try for some healthy pancake muffins by adding some dried fruit and nuts for a trail mix muffin.

… the yummy possibilities are endless! You could even go savory, with diced ham or bacon.

Mix up a typical pancake mix, with the addition of a couple more eggs, to make it more like muffin batter.  Pour batter into muffin tins, add your desired toppings and bake! You want to keep it nice and vanilla-flavored, so you can add whichever toppings you like!

These muffin tin pancakes can definitely be made ahead.  You can keep them in the refrigerator for a couple days or freeze them for up to 3 months.  Pop them in the microwave when thawed and they are just as delicious as when they are fresh out of the oven!

Plus, they can be very easily taken on the go. With the toppings added into the muffins you don’t need syrup, so there is no mess. For rushed mornings the kiddos can totally eat these in the car on the way to school or a snack out and about.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to make gluten free pancake mix muffins? Instead of using a packaged pancake mix, you just make your own mix with gluten free flour!

What is the difference between muffin mix and pancake mix? While pancakes call for more liquid, muffins get more (often way more) sugar, fat and baking powder. That’s why muffins are dense and cake-like, while pancakes are light and fluffy. So while muffin batter cooked in a skillet may resemble a pancake, the taste is all muffin.

We love how easy it is to create pancake mix muffins that everyone can make their own.
