Pancake Muffins


Henry loves muffins and we've been trying out a new variation this week -- Pancake Muffins! This is an easy recipe shortcut for making muffins with pancake mix. We made three different flavors this week and Henry loved all of them.
Making Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancake Muffins

The recipe makes 6 muffins. We shared 4 at breakfast, and then he packed 2 in his lunchbox for the following day. They were all devoured!

PANCAKE MUFFINS
Makes 6

- 1 cup Pancake Mix
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional) 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Pour into lined muffin tin. Bake 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pancake Muffins: We tried the recipe with pumpkin pancake mix for a hearty fall flavor.
Chocolate Banana Coconut Pancake Muffins: We made a batch with toasted coconut pancake mix. Reduce the milk to 1/4 cup. Add one ripe mashed banana and 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancake Muffins: We used buttermilk pancake mix plus 1/4 cup peanut butter. Reduce the milk to 1/4 cup. Add a dollop of your favorite jelly on top before you put in the oven to bake.

Adding fresh blueberries would also be a delicious variation if you enjoy blueberry pancakes.

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
