Making blueberry pancake bites for a quick on the go breakfast

When you make pancake bites with pancake mix, it makes it so much easier of a recipe! To start, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees, measure out all ingredients and get ready to start this easy breakfast idea. Lightly grease the cups of a 12 count muffin pan, set aside. In a mixing bowl, add pancake mix, water, maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir until pancake batter is nice and smooth. Add blueberries, gently folding them into the batter until they are all coated.

Pour pancake batter evenly into each muffin tin cup and bake at 350 degrees for 16-20 minutes. Pancake bites should be brown around the edges and slightly brown on the tops of each pancake. Feel free to do a toothpick test to make sure they are all finished in the middle.

Allow your blueberry pancake bites to cool, then gently loosen each one and pop them out. The result: delicious, fluffy blueberry pancakes that are ready to take with you to go! They re-heat well, I warm them for about 30 seconds in the microwave each morning, add a little more maple syrup to the bottom of a zipper bag, and put the pancake bites inside for dipping. My kids love it!
