Mini Pancake Muffins
These muffins are light and airy and taste just like a pancake! I love the flavor the cinnamon adds! Serve them at breakfast, instead of a stack of silver dollar pancakes! My boys ate 6 a piece the other day for breakfast! They were shouting, “More!”, but, I had to save a few for the others in the family (including myself!)...
1 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon OR 1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbl melted butter
2 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl maple syrup
1/2 c. + 1 Tbl plain yogurt OR sour cream
2 Tbl milk
1/2 c. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350
Grease a 24 mini-muffin pan with cooking spray (you will only get 20 muffins, though).
In a large mixing bowl mix together the melted butter, sugar and maple syrup. Add egg and mix. Add the yogurt (or sour cream) & milk and mix.
In another large mixing bowl add flour, powder, soda, salt & cinnamon (or vanilla), whisk with a fork to combine all dry ingredients.
Add half of the dry mixture with the wet. Stir. Add the rest and mix until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Put approx. 1 Tbl of batter into each mini muffin cup (I use a little melon baller scooper). Bake for 9-11 minutes (until the muffins spring back when you touch them).
