Pancakes aren’t the norm around here. Somehow I find it easier to scramble up eggs than to mix batter, pull out a griddle and wait for bubbles to form. But in efforts to switch things up, lately I’ve made a couple batches of…

As usual, you could totally scratch off the ‘for kids’ because I’m chowed down on quite a few of these myself. Ah, the duties of recipe testing Winking smile

The best part about these little muffins is that they are adaptable to any diet! Simply pick your pancake mix of choice: from scratch buttermilk pancakes your thing? Go for it! Prefer gluten-free? Grab some Bob Red Mill’s! Need it to be vegan? Use a mix with no egg or milk. Whole wheat strike your fancy? Do ittttt.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a muffin tin well with nonstick spray (or you can use coconut oil). Add about 2 Tablespoons of batter to each cup.

Then, choose your toppings or let the kids pick what they’d prefer!

Really push the toppings into the batter, unless you want them to just top the muffin when baked.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until a toothpick can be stuck in and come out clean.

    This is GENIUS! I am a pancake lover through and through. We just had them last night for dinner! Blueberry or banana are my favorite. Can’t wait to try this!

  2. Liz says

    Thanks for the idea! Like you, I never make pancakes, and when I do, I am frustrated by how long they take to cook and how they always stick to the pan.

  3. Kathryn says

    Absolutely love this idea! I get so tired of standing over the griddle to cook the whole batter amount so I can save the leftover pancakes in the fridge for a quick breakfast. This is genius!

      Thanks Tracy! I’ve been working hard on it and hope it makes navigation and loading easier :) I appreciate the feedback as I keep tweaking small things as I go!

    I am saddened by the fact that I now have to click read more. I really liked this site and easy layout before.

    • Brittany Dixon says

      I am still in the process of making alterations and doing a lot of work on the back-end. I appreciate the feedback. Just trying to see how things all work right now!

  5. says

    Ooh! Another fantastic recipe! These muffins are definitely something that my entire family would love- not just the Toddler. I’m pretty sure I could eat an entire batch on my own :)

    One more thing – I like the new layout! Very clean (although I liked it a lot before, too). I have to disagree about pressing the read more button – I think it’s nice to be able to see more posts on your homepage, and then click on the post I want to read more of. Anyway, I think it’s nice that we have to click to read more.

    And now, I’m off to pin!

    Two questions,

    How long would you bake these if using mini muffin find and would I sti put two tablespoons of batter in each?

    Also, on one of your baby led weakng recipes, sweet potato rounds, how long wound I bake those and what temperature?

    • Brittany Dixon says

      Hi Jennifer, check the mini muffins after 8-10 minutes and I would use less batter, too. Fill each mini cup about halfway, or a little less.

      I bake my sweet potato rounds for about 40 minutes, flipping half way at 350, but oven will differ slightly, so just keep an eye on them. ENjoy! :)
