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!
- 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.
