Mini Pancake Muffins

I've recently come to the conclusion that anyone that doesn't love puppies or pancakes are terrible people.  This would naturally mean that anyone who doesn't love mini pancakes filled with chocolate chips or berries, smothered in butter, and dipped in maple syrup are monstrous, horrible beings.  Since I'm sure none of you are these awful, haters of all things cute and sweet, these are the perfect treat to satisfy any cravings for something cute as a button and sweet as could be for breakfast...or lunch...or dinner...or all three...


This recipe makes about 24 mini muffins.  

- 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Sugar
- 2/3 Cup Buttermilk (Room Temp.)
- 1 Egg (Room Temp)
- 2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
- 2 Tablespoons Butter (Melted, and Cooled)
- 1/2 Cup Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (You could also make these just plain, or with any of your favorite berries)

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray your muffin tins with some baking spray.  (I like the Pam spray for baking.)

2.) In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.  

3.) In a separate large bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, maple syrup, and slowly add in the melted butter incase it is is still a little hot (you don't want the hot butter to cook your egg.)

4.) Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, in two or three small batches, stirring until just combined.  

5.) Fold in your chocolate chips or whatever else you choose to add.  

6.) Spoon about a tablespoon of batter into each muffin cup and bake for about 12-15 minutes, keeping a close eye on them so that they don't burn.  

7.) I like to eat mine hot out of the oven, slathered in butter and dipped in maple syrup.  I'm sure they would also be delicious topped with some buttercream icing, or a fruit topping as well.  

How cute are they!
