Pancake Muffins

Here comes another food post! 

Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods. I've limited myself from them since I have been on a diet. When the cravings hit, I often resort to the healthier, gluten free, cardboard tasting, bland brand, healthy pancake option. And It worked.

Well, I've gone back to my favorite brand of Aunt Jemima buttermilk pancake mix. I learned that if I eat only what the serving suggest and not eat five at a time, I'll be fine. 

I like muffins too, so I found a way to have the best of both worlds. I seen this idea online somewhere but cant remember where. I didn't read how they were made either, I only saw a photo and figured out the rest on my own. Bingo!

Pancake Muffins

  • 2/3 cup- Aunt Jemima complete pancake mix.
  • Enough water to make a thick but pourable batter.
  • Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • Pour in batter to fill each cup about 1/2 to 1/3 full.
  • Add some fruit on top.
  • Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes

OK, so I'm not a recipe writer but I hope you can figure it out. Basically, just make a pancake mix of your choice and pour into muffin tins. 

Coat with butter if you wish and dip into your favorite syrup or sprinkle with powder sugar. There is a wide range of possibilities. So, explore, add new flavors, have fun with it.
I added a few blueberries to mine but next time I am going to try adding syrup into the batter before baking. This would make a great grab and go breakfast.

Whats great about this recipe is there are only 150 Calories in three muffins!!!! (same as three small pancakes).

Oh, and sugar free syrup is great!!
