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
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! 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!
Other fun mix-in ideas:
-sweet potato or pumpkin puree
-dark chocolate chips
Add about 1 Tablespoon of mix-ins per cup.
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.
You can serve them up right then and there…
or let them cool completely and keep them in an airtight container for fast breakfasts all week long.
Simply microwave for 15ish seconds or, a preferred method, the toaster oven.
Enjoy and happy weekend!
What are is your favorite pancake flavor?
I’ love banana nut or blueberry walnut!
I love this!! I am definitely making these for our family. I would probably put in carrots, zucchini, banana and berries for some extra produce punch!

Brilllllliant! Totally doing this! I have a bunch of Kodiak Cake pancake mix I need to use, so this is perfect. Thanks for the awesome idea! (Can you tell I’m excited?! It’s the little things…) 🙂

Looks Delicious. I going to try this at home.
Great idea! I love how you can take this in so many different directions by changing up the toppings.
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!
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.

I love blueberry pancakes, for sure!! This is such a nice alternative to regular pancakes!!!
Laura @ Mommy Run Fast says
What a fantastic idea! I love that you can mix or match all sorts of toppings this way to please everyone. So simple, too!
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!
We are all about the mini muffins ’round here! I would have never thought to put different “mix-ins” in one batch. Brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing!
How/why have I never though of this? Genius!
Also, I’d probably feel a bit like Elf, dipping them in syrup 🙂
Matt @ Runner Savvy says
I like peanut butter banana pancakes! I totally need to try this.

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!
Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl says
I love pancakes and I love muffins, so would pretty much be a win-win in my house! Favorite flavor would have to be peanut butter or banana… better yet, peanut butter banana! 😉
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!
love the new site! and love this recipe. i’m a big fan of muffins, makes for such an easy breakfast!
Pancake muffins?!!! These sound so good. I will have to try them! Great recipe.

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! 🙂
Love this! It seems so easy. Do you have a favorite pancake recipe or do you use a mix?
Brittany Dixon says
Typically I use a mix and love the Kodiak Cake brand for mixes. Delicious!
