Maple Pancake Poppers

There’s nothing like a fresh stack of pancakes for breakfast, but honestly who has time to make a batch of pancakes every single day? Definitely not me!

Hi! It’s Michelle from Thrifty DIY Diva! When I found these maple pancake poppers I fell head over heels in love with them!

Not only are they incredibly delicious (the melt in your mouth, super fluffy kind of delicious) but they are also incredibly easy and quick to make, making them busy mornings approved, oh and you can freeze them so that’s pretty awesome as well.

And while they go deliciously awesome with every topping you can think of:

  • bananas
  • berries
  • more maple syrup
  • whipped cream
  • peanut butter
  • the sky is the limit!

They are so packed with flavor that you can actually have them without any additional toppings. The batter is filled with drizzles of maple syrup so you get all that maple flavor.

You know what that means? These maple pancake poppers make an incredibly good breakfast on the go or snack for the little ones!!

Do you love maple syrup? Me too. If you get a minute, check out Jenn’s Gingersnap Cookies with Cinnamon Maple Icing. They are amazing and will also get you your maple syrup fix!

How to make pancakes in a muffin pan

Did you even know that you could make pancakes in a muffin pan? Well you can and they come out delicious!

These pancake poppers don’t rise a lot but that doesn’t mean they aren’t fluffy, quite the opposite they are even more fluffy than your traditional pancake and trust me when I say that every single person that tries them RAVES about them!

While I love to make them simple and let everyone pick their own toppings, you can also add to the batter some chocolate chips, banana coins, strawberry slices, peanut butter swirls or even bacon (the maple + bacon combo is to die for!) or you can even go full pancake popper queen and make a batch of different flavors to mix and match.

Have leftovers? Pop them all into a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Frozen breakfast options were never this tasty!
