Chocolate Chip Mini Pancake Muffins

I noticed this recipe on Bakerella a couple of weeks ago and new I had to give it a try. My daughter loves chocolate chip pancakes and I usually make them every Saturday morning, so I thought how cool are mini pancake muffins!! They're bite-size, you can dip them, you can carry them with you and eat them on the go - I just had to give them a try. The first response I got when I presented them to my daughter was "Why didn't you make just regular old pancakes?" Teenagers - grrrrrr! But after a few bites she said "I actually like these better than regular pancakes". Wow - a positive remark! This recipe goes in the keeper file!
Chocolate Chip Mini Pancake Muffins
from Bakerella
1 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 T sugar
2/3 c buttermilk
1 egg
2 T pure maple syrup
2 T melted butter
1/2 c milk chocolate chips (I used mini size)
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. Let cool slightly and remove from pan. Serve with butter and maple syrup for dipping.


  1. My grand-daughter are always asking me for chocolate chip pancakes and I never have made them. Maybe it's because I didn't have a recipe. I think that's the first step. THANKS!!! for giving me the first step a YUMMY!!! recipe.
