Pancake Mix Muffins

I was up at 4:30am Monday morning, so why not make muffins and take photos of them. And because it was 4:30am, this recipe makes 11 muffins. Not a dozen. 11.

This isn’t my first time using pancake mix to make something that isn’t pancakes. Growing up we’d use pancake mix to make cinnamon rolls, a childhood favorite of mine born from my mom’s creative brain.

I wanted a good go-to muffin recipe that I can easily switch up to match my cravings and this one may be it! I hope you enjoy them too!

Pancake Mix Muffins

Yield: 11 muffins (lol)


dry ingredients
2 cups pancake mix (I used Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Mix)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup mix-ins of choice (I used walnuts, chocolate chips, sweetened coconut)
dash cinnamon

wet ingredients
1 cup whole milk
1 egg, whisked
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350F. In a bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add in wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Fill your greased muffin tins with batter (I only filled up 11 tins because I like my muffins to have solid muffin tops). Fill any muffin tins with water before you place in the oven to bake. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
