Ready…Set…GO Breakfast

I don’t know about y’all, but I love me some pancakes!

Not only are they easy to make and perfect for a homestyle breakfast (or supper!), they’re also super versatile. I can vary the final product depending on what I have in my pantry/frig. Plain pancakes are great, but throw in some chocolate chips and suddenly breakfast is a whole lot more fun! Add blueberries, strawberry chunks, or apple bits as an easy way to “healthy-up” those carbs. And, don’t forget the bacon! Crumbled bits of crunchy, cooked bacon are a definite crowd pleaser around here.

And just when I thought pancakes couldn’t get any easier…Enter: mini-pancakes that can be baked in the oven! No need to stand at a griddle waiting on all the pancakes to cook. They cook themselves in the oven leaving me free to read a book. (Just kidding about the “reading the book” part. I wish!)

So much simplicity. So many options.

Mini Pancake Muffin Recipe


What you’ll need:

  • Prepared pancake batter (homemade or boxed)
  • Add-ins (chocolate chips, cooked/crumbled bacon, strawberry chunks, blueberries…the possibilities are endless!)

What you do:

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Butter mini muffin cups
  • Spoon batter into muffin cups (fill about 3/4 of the way)
  • Sprinkle tops with desired add-ins
  • Bake for about 12 minutes
  • Using my basic homemade pancake recipe, I normally get 30 mini muffins

Notes & Suggestions:

Top with warm homemade syrup for double the yumminess!

Make up the batter the night before to save time.

Add a bit of cinnamon when using apple chunks. (YUM!)

If you’re only using one add-in, mix it right into the batter saving the extra step of topping the pancake batter.

Triple your recipe and freeze for mornings when you’re really in a hurry!

Sub whole wheat flour for all or some of flour if making homemade.

    hehehe, great minds think alike! :] I love how versatile these are! (They’re great for combating my ineptitude in making real pancakes too! 😛 )

      Versatility is HUGE in my book! Never know what I’m gonna have in my pantry/frig/freezer so I have to be ready to go with the flow. 🙂 And, of course, I’m happy that this recipe will combat your pancake making ineptitude. 😉
