Pancake Muffins


I so cannot take the credit for this. I saw it on my friend Andrea's blog and it sounded interesting. So I thought I would give the idea a try. I used a boxed pancake mix (Aunt Jemima's is my favorite) though you could use any recipe from scratch. I followed the directions on the box for the pancakes, then added 2 over-ripe bananas and mixed well. I sprayed some cooking spray into the mini muffin pan and then poured the batter to the top. This made 27 mini muffins -- most likely there would be fewer muffins without the fruit.

I baked the muffins in the oven, preset to 350 degrees, for 20 minutes. Note that these muffins will not turn golden brown like regular muffins do.

We served them with bacon and dipped them into warm syrup. They were deelish!

Can't wait to experiment with other fruits and flavors now!

This would be a great thing to serve for a sleepover as they are easier to make than the pancakes are.


Dip your mini muffin into syrup and YUM!

what a good idea. I'm going to try. We had banana pancakes for dinner last night! With butter and a sprinkle of sugar on top. Delish. Kids couldn't get enough of them.

YUM! And so easy! Thanks Jess. I was mother of the year this morning. I got a "Mom! You make the best pancake muffins EVER!" Gotta love a response like that! :) ~Lanie

These sound good and favorite combination. I wonder how they would work with blueberries?? I think I'm going to give these a try next weekend.

I'm going to try these. What a great idea, and I hate to be Debbie Downer, but the scratch pancake mess is for the birds. This looks like a great compromise!
