Breakfast was so simple when doing baby cereal. I would usually add something to it like a fruit or veggie puree to give it something extra. But either way, it was so easy, simply because it was the same thing every morning. I would switch up what puree I added but it was always the same thing, baby cereal. I didn’t have to think twice about what I was giving my little guy for breakfast. Now that I’m making actual breakfasts every morning instead of doing baby cereal it has demanded a bit more creativity. Now it’s, “Oh yeah, what am I making Sawyer for breakfast?!”
I really feel like I should switch it up so I try not to give him the exact same thing every morning. And yet, at the same time I want something really easy that I can quickly prepare for my demanding child that gets his “wake up and I want breakfast now” attitude that he gets from his mom 😛
These pancake muffins make 12 muffins and are super simple to just zap in the microwave in the morning! Boom…just like that you now have some ready to go breakfasts.
How to make:
Easy Grab Pancake Muffins:
-2 Cups bisquick (or any pancake mix would probably do! Or if you have a favorite homemade recipe)
-1 Cup milk (I used whole milk since they were for my 1 year old)
-1 Tbsp coconut oil (make sure to melt down if it’s solid so that it mixes in well)
-Handful of chopped spinach
-Add-ins of your choice (Ideas: blueberries, strawberries, cheese, bananas, sausage, cinnamon, sweet potato…)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix together bisquick, milk, eggs, coconut oil and chopped up spinach. I used a fairly good amount of spinach and my son either loves spinach or can’t tell at all that it’s in there! If you are only going to use one add-in you could add desired amount now. If you want to use multiple different add-ins to switch up each muffin then add them in separately once in the muffin tin. Once your batter is ready pour it into your muffin tin. I used silicone muffin liners. Now add a little bit of whatever add-ins you would like. This time I chose to use blueberries, banana and cheddar cheese (each for separate muffins). Bake for about 12-15 minutes.
That’s it, super easy! Add a bit of syrup after heating if you’d like.
