Pancake Puffs

Everyone - I think I may have solved breakfast. I really love pancakes and waffles, but making them on the griddle or waffle iron is totally hit or miss for me. I don't know what skill it is that I am lacking, but I end up burning half of my pancakes, and getting my waffle batter oozing all over the place. Plus you have to make one at a time? Forget that!

I stumbled on one of those pinterest posts where you read it and think "Oh yeah right". You know, like that melted crayon art. I saw one where they made pancakes in a muffin tin and they came out all cute and perfect. I was skeptical...but look at these adorable pancake puffs! They all look great and were ready to be served at the same time. Breakfast is saved my friends.

Yes, you read that right up above. I cooked a Boca vegan chick'n patty, and then cut it up and put it in my pancake batter. I was going for the "chicken and waffles" flavor combo. It was pretty awesome! Top with your favorite maple syrup and you are good to go. I really enjoyed the banana and blackberry combo, and my husband said his favorite was peanut butter with chocolate chips.

  12. What consistency should the batter be? Mines all mixed up but very watery. I followed recipe exactly but used gluten free oat flour.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's the consistency of normal pancakes batter, so a little watery is okay. Maybe add in a little more flour if it's too wet?

  14. this is blowing my mind!! I have to try this out! I can get pancakes to come out ok but my waffle maker seems to really have a strong distaste for me and my breakfast dreams, so this is perfect!!!

  15. I have to try this with the chocolate chips. These look amazing, and who can say no to chocolate chip anything in the morning? Looks delicious - making them tomorrow!

  16. These are a new favorite at my house! Soooo good! I've done three versions that were all delicious. The first time I put strawberry slices in the bottom of half the muffin cups and bananas in the other half before pouring the batter over. Then I sprinkled slivered almonds on top of the banana ones once batter was poured. The next time I made them I mixed blueberries and cinnamon into the batter, and that's our favorite! Thanks so much for this wonderful, simple, delicious addition to our weekend breakfasts!
