Simple Muffin Mix Pancakes

Simple Muffin Mix Pancakes

Easy and delicious pancake recipe using muffin mix

I love fun and simple breakfast recipes and these muffin mix pancakes are so easy to make!

This recipe is really versatile too. There are so many different muffin mixes that will work with this recipe that the possibilities are almost endless.

They take only three ingredients and are super quick to whip up! That makes them perfect for those busy mornings when you don’t have time for a lot of cooking. All you need to make great pancakes is an egg, some milk, and your favorite bag of muffin mix.

My favorite brand to use is Betty Crocker. They come in so many delicious flavors like cinnamon streusel, chocolate chip, banana nut, wild blueberry, triple berry, and cornbread.

Other great brands that make muffin mix perfect for this recipe are Martha White, Krusteaz, and Stonewall Kitchen.

I like to use a couple 7 oz. packages for my family. That will yield you about 16-20 pancakes.

These pancakes also take add ins very well. Some of my family’s favorite add ins are fresh fruit, nuts, vanilla extract, and chocolate ganache, and even flax seed.

Yes! You can make pancakes from muffin mix

Different brands of muffin mix come in different ounces so you may need to adjust your milk a bit to get your desired consistency.

Remember to add any add ins when stirring your batter. These pancakes are great as is, but they are a great base for adding fruits, nuts, and other add ins.
