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.
