Alright people (especially parents), say hello to your new morning bestie! Make one batch of these, and you’ll have a gallon freezer bag full of ready-to-microwave pancake bites. They are fluffy, there is pumpkin spice in every bite, and they are preeeettttyyyy dang cute IMO.
My kids love these – I give them a little pool of maple syrup to dip them in, and they just nom them right up. But even for adults – these are a hit all around! I love pancakes, but I SERIOUSLY hate how it chains me to the stove, pouring, flipping,
burning until I get through whatever batter I have. It’s not a fun breakfast to make.
These are my solution – you bake the whole batch up at once, and it leaves you with a bunch of little two-bite pancakes that are just as cute as they are delicious.
It doesn’t hurt my love of this recipe that it SCREAMS fall – between the pumpkin and the pumpkin pie spice folded into every bite, they make my fall dreams come true. AND – they are dairy free, so they’re safe for my little guy.
The process is simple – we start with a pancake mix (I love Bisquick because the mix itself is dairy free. One of the only ones that is!). To this, we whisk in some almond milk, eggs, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, a touch of sugar, and vanilla.
Scoop into some sprayed mini muffin tins, bake for a short ten minutes, and you’ve got breakfast prepped for the next several days/few weeks! I love this one, you guys – SO GOOD, so fun, so cute, and so tasty. It’s all I want when I’m pushing through my groggy mornings with all my tiny humans.
