Mini Muffin Pancake Bites
Getting three kids ready and off to school in the morning is no easy feat, but this simple and quick recipe for mini muffin pancake bites feeding them breakfast the easiest part! If you are looking for a delicious breakfast for the kids that they can personalize and you can whip up in minutes, then keep reading!
My kids love pancakes and they have become something we greatly look forward to enjoying on weekend mornings.. you know, when there is actual time to make them! They have grown bored with all of my typical on the go breakfast foods and I decided it was time to change things up. I wanted a recipe that all three of my kids could make their own because they all have their own favorite foods. Plus I wanted a breakfast food that could be frozen and then warms up quickly in the mornings. It only made sense to take their favorite breakfast meal and make them miniature! That is where these adorable mini muffin pancake bites came from, the perfect size for little hands.
All you need to do to create these mini muffin pancakes is to mix up your favorite brand of pancake mix. Pour the mix into a mini muffin pan and have your kid(s) top with their favorite food. We went with blueberries, strawberries and mini chocolate chips.. but there are so many other foods you could top your pancake muffins with!
Cook them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes and making sure to keep a close eye on them when they cook because they cook fast! Take them out right away to avoid burning and allow them to cool before removing them from the pan.
If there is one thing that can ruin a perfectly good mini muffin pancake, it would be attempting to spread butter it, only to realize this can not be done without destroying the entire top layer! Plus I simple do not have time to butter all three of my kids muffin pancakes. Fortunately I have found the ideal solution!
We recently picked up the all new Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread while shopping at our local Kroger this weekend. This spread comes in a convenient, easy to squeeze bottle which makes topping our muffin pancakes a quick and mess free task!
I never realized how much I needed this product in my life until I finally had it… and I could never live without it now! This spread is so easy to squeeze out of the bottle and allows me to top all of our favorite foods without making a mess. What is truly great about this spread is that it is squeezable right out of the refrigerator, so there is no need to let it sit out for a bit until you can use it!
Breakfast during the week has been something we all look forward to now, these mini muffin pancake bites are super delicious!
