Slaving over a hot griddle making pancakes doesn’t sound like a fun morning to me, so skip the pancakes and make these easy pancake muffins instead!
These Peanut Butter Pancake Muffins
have that amazing pancake taste and flavor, all in the convenience of a muffin.
Have you ever heard of a puffin? These pancake-muffins or “puffins” (not to be confused with the bird) have some maple syrup mixed into the batter for that pancake flavor you’re after -- and they have the same texture as a fluffy pancake, too.
Just pour your pancake batter into some lined cupcake tins and sprinkle with whatever toppings you prefer: coconut, blueberries, nuts – you name it. But since we added some peanut butter to these puffins, the obvious topping of choice was a handful of chocolate chips to complement the peanut butter.
Put them in the oven and do whatever your heart desires. Read the paper, watch a show, play with your children…or dog. But what you WON’T be doing is sweating over the stove flipping your life away.
Serve them alone or with some syrup. You can even make mini puffins and eat four instead of just one and not feel bad about it at all.
Pancakes are so last week. Try these cute and adorable puffins for something new!
