Mini Chocolate Chip Puffins Recipe
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 2 cups Extra fluffy pancake mix
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prep #2 mini muffin pans with Baker’s Joy or cooking spray.
  3. Whisk together pancake mix and water until smooth, then fold in ¼ cup mini chocolate chips.
  4. Transfer pancake batter to a pourable measuring cup to help aid in filling muffin cups.
  5. Fill each muffin cup ⅔ full, the sprinkle with a few additional mini chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Note: tops will remain pale but the sides will turn a golden.
  7. Serve & Enjoy! Yields 45 puffins!
If you have a favorite pancake mix then substitute for dry pancake mix and proceed from there. I used a boxed mix because I was making a large batch for a group gathering but any pancake recipe will work! * Eat and enjoy just the way they are or dip in melted chocolate or syrup! * Cool left over puffins completely then store in airtight container or freeze for future consumption. * Substitute mini chocolate chips for sprinkles for a fun birthday or special occasion puffin!
