Easy to make banana pancake muffins are a pancake lovers dream. When there’s no time to fix pancakes these one bowl muffins are a great grab & go alternative. Yummy banana flavor with the added sweetness of maple syrup will have you grabbing one for breakfast every day.
I just had the greatest week with my sister who was visiting from Michigan. She really enjoyed the chance for some warmer weather and beautiful blue skies. We packed as much as possible into every day, including walks on the beach, lunches by the water and delicious meals out. She even helped with a few decorating hint for the next project on my list.
What’s that next project? I’m getting new tile floors and a new kitchen! Just thinking about it is so exciting I can hardly wait. But now the reality is setting in on everything I have to do to get ready. Packing everything up from the cabinets (both kitchen & dining), moving furniture and getting paper plates & plastic silverware to try to eat some meals at home until it’s done.
So, if you don’t see anything new for the next couple weeks you’ll know why. Although I do have one or two great recipes in my back pocket to share with you.
Today’s recipe came about because of the remodeling. I thought it would be great to have another quick on-the-go breakfast besides my Egg Bowls and Granola Breakfast Cookies. So I whipped up a super easy banana pancake in muffin form – what could be better?
How about how simple these banana pancake muffins are to make! I wanted to make them a little healthy so I started with Bisquick Heart Smart pancake & baking mix. This ready to use mix is low in fat with no trans fat, naturally cholesterol free and an excellent source of calcium. Whisk in milk, egg, mashed bananas, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir in chocolate chips, pour into muffin pan, bake & done.
I like to serve them as is with a little fruit but they are also great dipped in a little extra maple syrup. You can freeze them individually and reheat for a minute in the microwave. Just like that-presto- it’s breakfast!
Hope you enjoy!
