4-Ingredient Pancake Muffins Recipe: Pancakes You Pick Up to Eat

Here's a different flip on pancakes – pancake muffins. The pancake muffins recipe starts with pancake mix and is ready in about 20 minutes. The moist maple-flavored muffins are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast or snack any time of the day.

The four-ingredient muffins have a short ingredient list that you probably already have in your kitchen: pancake mix, milk, eggs and maple syrup. The ingredients are stirred together, spooned into muffin tins and baked until golden. Drizzle them with lots of maple syrup when serving! 

Make this breakfast or brunch muffin recipe even more exciting by adding chocolate chips or blueberries right before baking. Or how about topping them with crisp, crumbled bacon and syrup? Wow!
