One of the biggest time-savers as a mom is preparing food in bulk.  And what I love most about making muffins and mini muffins is how portable and easy to eat they are.

Mini pancake muffins have been my go-to for the last couple years and we almost always have them in our fridge or freezer.  They make a great breakfast because you don’t have to sit at the stove cooking a couple pancakes at a time.  You mix up the batter, scoop them into your pan, and have an entire batch of pancakes ready to eat all at the same time.

These pancake muffins freeze and thaw really well, so they’re perfect for school lunches.  We put them directly from the freezer into the kids’ lunchboxes and by the time lunch rolls around, they’re perfectly thawed.

These work great as mini muffins or regular-size muffins – just note the different bake times.

    Thank you!!!! My new favorite recipe!!!
    I also tried 1/3 and 2/3 of each ingredients to make a smaller batch and it turned out great! Thank you! Thank you!

  2. Zee says:

    How do you store them if not freezing them? Ill be making 12, so I don’t think I’ll need to freeze them, but want to keep them fresh.

  3. Shanna says:

    Any chance you’ve tried this with applesauce or something else in place of banana? I’ve got a VERY anti-banana 7 year old ????????‍♀️

    • Brittney says:

      You can leave out the bananas altogether! I would just add a little less liquid until you get to the consistency of a muffin batter and they’ll bake up great just like that!

    My son is allergic to eggs. Can they be left out?
