I love pancakes, but I do not love making them, nor do I have the time to make them. That makes these little incredibly easy, bite size pancake muffins the perfect solution! Mess free, easy grab & go, and delicious! No sticky syrup everywhere, no standing over a hot oven watching for air bubbles… just another incredibly easy, kid approved meal!
I like to make them after dinner while I am cleaning up. They take less than 5 minutes to whip up so I preheat the oven, get them ready, and start cleaning up from dinner. Once the oven is ready, put them in and set the timer for 10 minutes and finish cleaning. Try to race the clock and get your cleaning finished before the timer for the muffins go off!
- Box Pancake Mix
- Optional Mix Ins (chocolate chips, etc.)
Did I mention this was incredibly easy? 😜
Step 1 • Preheat oven to 350° F and spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray, or use liners (reusable, please!)
Step 2 • Follow directions on box mix. The brand I used called for 2 cups mix + 1 and 1/3 cup water. Pour mix into mini muffin tin or (reusable) liners.
Step 3 • Top mixture with optional mix ins. I listed the mix ins that I used this time under each photo. Fresh fruit is always a great and healthier mix in!
Step 4 • Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool before removing from mini muffin tin.
I don’t think these could possibly be any easier to make. It is a fun breakfast to include children in making if you do have time in the mornings, but during the school year it’s just so much easier for me to make the night ahead.
As the muffins cool, finish up the last of your cleaning. Remove from the mini muffin tin, store for the morning, start your dishwasher and call it a day. You already have breakfast ready for your family in the morning. That’s how you get a head start on tomorrow before you even go to sleep!
