pancake muffins {lifehack}

filed under: Muffins on May 4, 2015

With a large family breakfast usually goes one of two ways:

1. Make just enough and everyone is happy and full.

2. Make way too much and have lots of leftovers.

LIFEHACK! Pancake Muffins~ seriously the best!

(or does this happen with every size family??)

Well, this sweet “lifehack” is kinda the best find ever. I am still making the same ole delicious pancake recipe we love, but they are in muffin form.

LIFEHACK! Pancake Muffins~ seriously the best!

So. As everyone finishes up their breakfast and says, “My belly is SO full!” and “I am stuffed!” I simply put the pancake muffins on a plate and set aside.

One hour later when people start wondering back in the kitchen claiming they are starving I get to say, “Grab a pancake muffin!”

They happily do.

And I don’t roll my eyes and wonder how one goes from being full to starving in 4 minutes.

Here is a quick video on how I made them!

We have since made these with chocolate chips which the kids absolutely love. I mean, of course, they do. It’s chocolate.

I love the versatility of this awesome breakfast treat and love that it is so easy. I also love that our delicious breakfast turns into an all-day long snack!

    DID ANYBODY ELSE MAKE THIS EXACT RECIPE??? I did and it was so salty that we could not eat it. May be there was a misprint somewhere in the measurements?? I followed exactly as it says and was disappointed that I had to throw it all away.
    did anyone else’s come out way to salty???

    Hi Amanda! I love your stuff.

    I don’t think the video link is working, but I’d like to see it if you have time. If not, no worries at all.

    Thank you for your hard work.
