For The Toppings
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Oil the muffin pan generously.
In a large mixing bowl add pancake mix, eggs, sugar, milk and oil. Combine well with a silicone spatula until the egg yolks fully mix into the batter and there is no more dry pancake mix in the bowl. Muffin batter should be thick.
Fill each of the muffin wells evenly with batter until about ¾ full. Using a ¼ cup measure and a spoon will help scoop evenly between the muffins.
Add different flavors to each muffin and mix with a toothpick or spoon. We've used diced strawberries, blueberries, and a peanut butter, chocolate chip and banana muffin flavor. See the notes for how to add each flavor.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and baked through the middle. Watch carefully not to overbake, these muffins should be on the lighter side. Making them too brown may dry out the muffins. Cool and enjoy!
Strawberry- 4-6 tablespoons diced strawberry per four muffins ( About five medium strawberries, but this doesn’t have to be exact.) Press into the top of the muffin batter once in the muffin tin and swirl with a toothpick or spoon.
Blueberry- 1/2 cup blueberries per four muffins. Press into the top of the muffin batter once in the muffin tin and swirl with a toothpick or spoon if needed.
Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip - ½ banana cut into thin rounds. ¼ cup chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons warmed peanut butter per four muffins. Warm the peanut butter in the microwave for a minute, then add ½ teaspoon and swirl in the batter in the muffin tin with a toothpick. Top the muffin with chocolate chips and 2-3 banana slices.
