Blueberry Pancake Poppers

Here’s an easy breakfast bite treat to try. These are blueberry pancakes baked in mini muffin shapes. You know … to make mornings fun and dunkable.

You just need a few baking basics for the pancake batter.

I’ve added mini chocolate chips to these before and loooove them (see here), but this time I’m all about blueberries and oats as the add-in ingredients.

Just mix all the ingredients together and then scoop the batter into the cavities of a greased mini muffin pan.

This is way easier than flipping flapjacks a few at a time.

After baking, use a toothpick if necessary to run around the edges of the muffins while still in the pan to make them easier to remove.

Serve them right away with melty butter or maple syrup …

Or stack some up to save for later. Freeze them a few at time for a quick morning meal.

  1. Great twist on the blueberry pancake. You’re absolutely right this is so much easier than ‘flipping flapjacks’.

    I like that I can freeze this for the next days. Saves even more time.

  2. Blueberry pancakes are always an easy go-to breakfast item! But you’ve made them even easier by reshaping them into cute little bite-sized muffins.
    With the blueberries and oats, these would even make a great snack, no syrup needed!
