Pancake Bites

I'm not a huge pancake fan. I only eat them when I'm at Lori & Jack's and Jack makes them. However, I like bite size food and easy grab and go breakfasts, so I figured I'd give pancake bites a try. They're good. Good enough for me to make a test batch, then make two more batches the next day to freeze.

They're perfect to take to work, to make ahead for company coming over for breakfast or brunch, or if you have kids and want to have breakfast ready to go in the morning.
Your favorite pancake mix and whatever you need to make it (I used Bisquick because I had it and added whole milk and eggs)
Sausage, cooked (or bacon, cooked and crumbled)
Fruit, fresh or frozen (I used blueberries, frozen, thawed and drained)

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix your favorite pancake mix according to package directions. I do this in a large glass bowl with a spout for easy pouring.

Add a tablespoon of vanilla and a tablespoon of syrup. Sprinkle with cinnamon to your taste.

Grease muffin tins - I used mini muffins. You can also use liners if you want to skip the mess.

Fill muffin tins about 3/4 full with mix. Top with your toppings of choice.

Bake for 8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clear upon insertion.

If not using liners - allow to cool for a half hour in tins before attempting to remove. That part is important. Patience, Daniel-san. Using a plastic knife, work around the edges and then pull them out. If you're freezing them, put them in freezer safe bags and you're dunzo.

Bite size everything.
Because it's cute and lovely.
Like Justin Bieber.

  1. Those are so perfect for mornings on the go! Love it! The Haiku is your best one ever!

  2. i love this!! grab n go breakfast bites are the best. even better that you can pretty much add whatever you want (ie. frozen blueberries etc) to this.

    Vodka and Soda

  3. I would totally make those with chocolate chips or fruit. I'm the weirdo that can't get syrup on her sausage/bacon lol.

  4. Oh my they sound fantastic! With chocolate and peanut butter chips! YUM!!!

  5. I do like pancakes
    (lots of butter and syrup)
    I don't make them though.

  6. I like to eat pancakes but don't like making them. I like this baking idea - less mess. I hate April Fools Day but that Haiku is perfection.

  7. The pancakes bites sound lovely. I have been making pancakes with half protein powder to get something good in there and they have been turning out fine. Look forward to trying these. LOL on the haikusday!

    I love carbs/sweets
    not only as treats
    Wish I loved only vegetables
    Dream on

    Love your MOMMA

  8. I don't cook we all know that but I love your Haiku's so I'm here! It's cute and lovely like Justin Beiber, hahahaha!!!

  9. Easy peasy! Except the patience part, I'd probably digging them out with a spoon and stuffing them into my mouth. That's probably bad...

  10. Holy YUM!!! Loooove pancakes, definitely going to have to try this out :)

  11. I love bite sized food! It makes me feel like I am getting more even though I usually eat less. It is all about mind trickery for me!

  12. I love this idea for on-the-go breakfast!

  13. I made my way over here from Kate's blog...had to share with you that we're pretty much the same person. My birthday is also March 15th, and I also got my hair did the week before and spent the latter part of the month using giftcards and my birthday coupons! Happy to have discovered your blog :)

    I do what I want.

  14. Yess, the perfect breakfast solution for my household!

  15. What a cute idea! And I love that you can make a few different types by using either fruits or breakfast meats! Yumm

  16. This is such a great idea- I'm always looking for a good grab and go breakfast, and these freeze well! I'm definitely going to try them soon. Thanks for linking up today!

  17. "I'm not a huge pancake fan." -_- Don't you ever start a blog post with a bomb like that again. Do you hear me?! DO.YOU.HEAR.ME?!

  18. Holy crap, YUM!!! I've made Bakerella's panamuffins before but these seem MUCH easier :)

  19. Whenever I make pancakes I make extras so I can grab them and go later, but I hate it because it's so messy. I never even thought to bake them like this, genius!

  20. I am dying for something quick and easy for breakfast. need to try these out.

  21. Thank you for sharing.... chocolate chips are also amazing.. FYI!

  22. this is such a good idea! i'm usually not in the mood for pancakes either but I do love an easy breakfast food to grab before work!

  23. I want. Between you and Kerry I am salivating over my computer. Very ladylike;)

  24. Now I just may give up my pb&j for breakfast...

  25. If we go out for bfast, I always want savory over sweet, but occasionally at home I want some pancakes, and then after two am so full because they're heavy...these bites would be perfect! And the fact that I could freeze is just a bonus :)
