“Rise and Shine! It’s time to get up!”
With school back in full swing, I’m always trying to think of quick, delicious breakfast ideas. These gluten free Pancake Muffins are the perfect way to start the day! They can be made ahead of time and frozen, so as long as the freezer is stocked, you are never more than 30 seconds away from a delicious, filling breakfast. They are also customizable – this isn’t a recipe as much as it is a suggestion. You can top your Pancake Muffins with chocolate chips, sprinkles, blueberries, seeds, fried bacon bits, nuts, or anything else that you might like on your pancakes.
My kids also love to take pancakes in their lunch kits, so I’ve also added these muffins to our Lunch Planner. Instead of needing a fork to eat, they simply take their Pancake Muffin and dip it into a little container of maple syrup.
These muffins are not only great for a make ahead breakfast, but they are also great for serving a crowd since aAll of the pancakes will be finished (and still hot) at once. Perfect for when the kids have sleepovers, or for brunch with friends.
