Easy Homemade Pancake Muffins – get pancakes for breakfast with these easy muffins! They are great to freeze for busy mornings, and you can top them however you like!
We all know I am a huge fan of muffins. Chocolate Chip Muffins are a staple in our house. One of the things I like best about muffins is how easy they are to make and freeze. You can always have them on hand, so busy school mornings are super easy. You can grab one to take to work with you and have a homemade breakfast every day.
Plus there are just so many fun flavors you can make. If you have over ripe bananas these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are a definite must make!
If my family had their way, pancakes would be on the menu multiple times a week. There is just something about soft fluffy pancakes with maple syrup that everyone loves. Well now with these pancake muffins they can. You get all the flavor of pancakes in the form of a muffin! And you can top them with whatever your family likes. Super easy to mix them up and make a few with blueberries and a few with chocolate chips.
My son is obsessed with chocolate chip pancakes, so I did quite a few with chocolate chips on top. I also did a few with blueberries and a few with sliced bananas. But you could really do whatever your family enjoys! Pretty much any sweet or savory combination will work.
What Can You Put On Pancake Muffins
- Sliced strawberries

What is in Pancake Muffins
They start with pretty much your average pancake ingredients, and then you can get creative with the toppings.
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Maple Syrup
How to Make Pancake Muffins
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together in one bowl.
- Mix all the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
- Mix everything together. The batter will be a little lumpy, just like pancake batter normally is.
- Scoop dough into a muffin tin and start topping. Top with whatever your family enjoys.
- Then just bake until they are cooked through.
These muffins are best stored in an air tight container for a couple days, or freeze them! I am asked all the time if you can freeze muffins, and the answer is always YES!! Just allow them to cool completely and then put in a plastic food storage bag. You can freeze them for up to 2-3 months. Then you just microwave one to thaw, or let it sit on the counter until it is thawed.
I love how easy these pancake muffins are to make. And everyone in the family gets the toppings they want. We like them with just a little syrup drizzled over the top to serve. All the taste of a lazy weekend breakfast on a busy weekday morning is the best way to start the day!
