Pancake mix muffins are easy to make and are great for a quick on-the-go breakfast or snack. Made with pancake mix and a few simple ingredients, these muffins can be made in less than 30 minutes. 

We love using mixes for a variety of recipes like cake mix waffles, brownie mix cookies, and cake mix banana bread.

These pancake muffins are great for a quick breakfast or snack. Now that school has started I don’t have time to make pancakes every morning so these muffins are perfect for them to grab and go. 

Ingredient needed for pancake muffins

Pancake mix – You can use your favorite pancake mix but you will still add eggs and milk even if the mix box says just water. 

Milk – Use your preferred milk. I used 2% milk for this recipe. 

Eggs – 2 eggs

Sugar – Granulated sugar. If you prefer less sugar, feel free to reduce to 1/4 cup. 

Vanilla – Adds a touch of sweetness to the muffins. 

Mini chocolate chips – These are optional but I love the sweetness they add. You could replace with blueberries, chopped apples. sprinkles or even bacon bits.

How to store

Store: These muffins can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for about 2 days. Eat at room temperature or microwave for 15 seconds if you prefer them warm.

Freeze: Once cooked, let completely cool. Place the muffins on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer for an hour. When they are frozen, place in a freezer safe bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Let thaw in the refrigerator and microwave to reheat.
