Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins

I’ve been curious to see how pancakes mix in a mini muffin pan would turn out …

 and so,

this morning, I gave it a whirl!

I know making homemade pancake is simple but since this started out as a test recipe I opted to use a boxed mix I keep in the pantry(Krusteez).  I made two separate batches, the first batch was with maple syrup and bacon. It was good but still needs a little tweaking.  The second batch was with mini chocolate chips.  I prefered the chocolate chips version, so this is the one I am posting.  I ‘m pretty sure I will also to try a banana and walnut version.

I feel like there are many possibilities on this one, so be creative.  I really loved this idea because I feel like it’s a unique way to serve pancakes. Especially, at a brunch or on a brunch buffet table.    

I made the smallest serving size on the package directions.  I prepared the mix per the directions, then added vanilla extract, sugar and chocolate chips.  I felt like the batter needed an addition of sugar even with the chocolate chips.

I then coated the mini muffin pan(s) heavily with cooking spray (i used the spray with flour/butter for baking).  I filled each pan full but think that a little less would have been better.  I was working fast and forgot to tap the pans and the mini muffin pancakes looked a little lopsided so “do” give them a tap before baking them in a pre-heated oven of 350 degrees F.

After about 12 minutes, when the tops looked lightly browned, I removed them from the oven.  I inserted a toothpick into  the  center of the thickest muffin and it came out clean so I knew they were done!

I plated them and served to the kids – they LOVED them!

I did not put any toppings but I would maybe sprinkle with a little powder sugar when cool..
