{Recipe} ~ Mini Maple Pancake Muffins

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. But unfortunately, I'm in too much of a hurry during the week to try out new recipes. The weekends are perfect for cooking breakfast at home.

I made these mini muffins for Holly's birthday weekend and they were a hit! I baked them the night before and we just reheated them in the morning. The 6 of us gobbled them up in one sitting. You expect them to be sweet, because they're muffins, but you have to remind yourself that it's pancake batter!

This would be perfect for company or an early morning football tailgate!

Mini Maple Pancake Muffins
from Six Sisters' Stuff

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk (I used regular skim milk and they were fine!)
1 egg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Generously grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.  In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.  Bake for 8-9 minutes.

Makes 24 mini pancake muffins.
