Let's Get Cooking: 3 Ingredient Pancake Muffins

I'm not normally a cook, but the hubby and I have been really trying to keep our food budget in check by cooking as much as possible at home. I'm all for easy recipes, so when I saw something similar on Pintrest a while ago (which unfortunately I didn't pin on one of my boards so I can't find it!) I said, "Hey, I can do that!"

With chocolate chips

With fruit (blueberries and raspberries)

You'll need:

A muffin tin
Non-stick spray
Pancake/waffle mix (I used Bisquick Whole Grain)
Water
Fillings for your "muffins"-Whatever you like: fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.



Follow the mixing directions according to your pancake mix. The Bisquick only requires water. I found that 2 cups of pancake mix with 1 1/3 cups of water will give you approximately 12 muffins depending on how full you fill your holes in the baking tin (I did half-way and I got 12 muffins). Once your mix is blended with no lumps, spray your muffin tin (even if it a non-stick pan, I found that mine got stuck regardless). Then pour your mix into the muffin tin holes. Then drop your fillings into the mixture (you could add your fillings when you make your mix but I like having more control on how much of my filling goes into each muffin). Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes (or when a toothpick poked into a muffin comes out clean). Allow to cool then remove from tin. 

You can eat them then or they can go into a freezer safe bag and will keep in your freezer for about 1-2 weeks. To reheat place in the microwave for 60-90 seconds depending on your microwave.

  2. These are great but if you want to save your muffin pans from the nasty film from the cooking spray, use muffin liners. Also, you can do 1 cup of any kind of pancake mix, 1/2 c of milk or water, and 1/4 cup of syrup and still add in your favorite things like mini chocolate chips, blueberries, bacon, etc and they bake in 10 minutes at 375 degrees. ENJOY!!!

    1. Oh thanks for the recipe suggestions, adding syrup sounds amazing! Will the muffins still freeze well with the liners on them?
