Blueberry Muffins Made With Pancake Mix

Making Blueberry Pancake Mix Muffins is the easiest way to prepare your pancakes and simply bake them in the oven instead of flipping and frying them (or burning them) on the grill or griddle.

What I love most about using “just add water” pancake mix is that the powder already contains its own flour and leavening agent, which cuts down on the number of ingredients you’ll need for this recipe.

These Blueberry Pancake Mix Muffins are conveniently portable and individually portioned like a muffin, with the same delicious flavor as your favorite pancake.

Make them sweet or make them savory, it is so easy to customize this breakfast treat with so many different mix-ins and toppings.

How to Make Blueberry Pancake Mix Muffins

This Blueberry Pancake Mix Muffins recipe has a simple shortcut to bake your morning breakfast without the worry of burning it on the stove! These muffins are fluffy and moist and the perfect meal to start your morning.

  1. Mix Dry Ingredients: Combine the dry pancake mix with sugar. Set aside.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until very well combined.
  3. Make The Muffin Mixture: Pour egg mixture into the bowl with the dry mixture and stir. Gently fold in the blueberries.
    Pro Tip: Make sure not to over mix. Small chunks are expected and ok to leave in the batter.
  4. Bake: Line a muffin pan with liners and fill each to the top with the batter. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 18 minutes.
    Pro Tip: Muffins are done baking when a toothpick can be inserted into the center of a muffin and pulled out clean.
  5. Serve: Let muffins cool before serving and top with fresh fruit if desired. Enjoy!

Tips

  • Don’t over mix your muffin batter (your pancake batter should be lumpy). Because the pancake mix already has the leavening agent, as soon as you add in the wet ingredients and mix, the batter will start rising. Therefore, you want to immediately place it in the prepared muffin tin to keep it high.
  • You can eat these blueberry muffins warm or cold.
  • For denser and richer muffins, feel free to use heavy cream or half-and-half instead of milk.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: These blueberry muffins can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days
  • To Freeze: You can freeze your baked muffins in a freezer-safe container for up to 5 months. Freezing the batter is not recommended.
  • To Reheat: Thaw your frozen muffins in the fridge overnight and reheat in the microwave.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh blueberries in my muffins?

Yes, you can use frozen blueberries if fresh are not available to you. If you are using frozen blueberries, rinse your berries in cold water, then drain them. This will help pull away the extra blue color and won’t leave your batter streaky.

Do I have to use store-bought pancake mix or can I make my own?

You can make your own pancake mix as long as it is a dry powder mix. If you have all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt on hand, you can easily make muffins from scratch without a mix!

Can I make this in a cupcake pan instead of a muffin pan?

Yes, you can make these blueberry muffins in a cupcake pan instead of a muffin pan. You can even pour the batter into a mini muffin tin and subtract 4 to 5 minutes from the baking time.
