Bacon & Pancake Muffins : An easy breakfast idea for kids

I am a huge fan of breakfast. I am a an even bigger fan of Bacon and pancakes. So joining the two only makes sense 🙂 There’s something so delicious about the sweet and salty combination that makes Bacon and pancakes a heavenly treat.

Why Pancake muffins?

When we get together for breakfast making pancakes for 6 kids and my hubby can take forever. It’s simply time consuming and a pain, so I decided to simplify my love into one delicious treat that’s easy to make, delicious to eat and perfect for any breakfast or brunch, Bacon & Pancake Muffins .

This recipe is Crazy Easy to make and takes less than 45 minutes from start to finish.

What you will need to make Bacon & Pancake Muffins

Bacon 3-4 strips of cooked bacon

Pancake Mix ( 3 Cups of mix already made)

1 Cup of chopped Walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

To begin grease the Muffin tin, I used butter but cooking spray will work. Add a little bacon to the bottom of each slot.

Mix together pancake mix , I used the box kind and made 3 cups of mix, I added a cup of chopped walnuts to the mix to give it an extra crunch.But these are optional. 

Once the mix was ready pour into tins. Don’t fill all the way or they will spill over during cooking.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. This is approximate depending on your oven and altitude so watch it. Remember they won’t go golden so just keep an eye on the tops so you don’t over cook and make them hard.

Once out of the oven, let them cool over a wire rack for about 4-5 minutes but make sure they’re not too cold so you can serve them warm.

    these look very good, however, i would use turkey bacon since i dont eat red meat or pork. it looks very simple to make and easy breakfast that can take on the go as well.

    Sounds like a great idea. I wonder if it would work with gluten free batter or maybe try cooked crumbled sausage at the bottom.
