Blueberry Muffin Mix Pancakes are the ideal solution to a quick and easy breakfast or brunch. It’s perfect for busy school mornings, And honestly, who doesn’t love breakfast with pancakes for any meal of the day?
Simple and delicious….isn’t that the kind of meal most of us are looking for to make our busy lives easier?
Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Since I’m not the biggest fan of eggs (and I LOVE carbs), the first thing I think of when it comes to breakfast is pancakes. Yum!
My family is full of breakfast-lovers, and they can often eat a truckload of food first thing. But I’m not the biggest fan of making breakfast first thing in the morning (I’m too busy trying to wake up!).
My kids absolutely LOVE blueberry pancakes. I usually make them from scratch, which takes too much effort for my poor tired brain on weekday mornings.
That’s why my new trick is to make blueberry muffin mix pancakes! Picking up a few muffin mix packages at the store provides lots more variety than a big box of pancake mix.
And the BRILLIANT thing about these muffin mix pancakes is that I can pick up different flavors each time instead of having to use the whole box of pancake mix before I can buy a different kind.
Throw in your favorite add-ins while mixing up a batch of muffin mix pancakes. Blueberries, chocolate chips, walnuts, confetti, bananas or maybe even bacon or peanut butter. Yum…yum…YUM!!!

Preheat your griddle or skillet to medium-low heat. Grease or use non-stick spray if you’re using a non-stick surface.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir well.
Pour a small amount on the pan or griddle. Cook for 2 – 4 minutes or until the edges of the pancake have bubbled.
Flip to other side and cook for another 2 – 4 minutes until both sides are golden brown.
Serve with butter and syrup or other toppings as desired. (I like using jam or jelly!)
Blueberry Muffin Mix Pancakes Recipe Notes And Tips
- Once you have pre-heated the griddle or skillet, drop a quarter size amount of batter on the griddle to make sure it hot enough.
- Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the batter ensures that you make the perfect size pancake.
- I like to make a double batch, cook the pancakes and then freeze any uneaten pancakes. This makes it super simple for your family to grab a quick and easy breakfast for themselves.

Fresh fruit makes everything better. Add in a few fresh blueberries to the batter when mixing the ingredients. Or if you are making strawberry pancakes, mix in a few fresh strawberries.
Try different flavors of syrup on your pancakes, such as maple, strawberry, red raspberry, caramel, or super yummy boysenberry. Whatever suits your fancy! 😉
Make silver dollar pancakes (or Mickey Mouse-shaped pancakes) for your little ones. In case you didn’t know, silver dollar pancakes are just pancakes the size of silver dollars…..smaller but just as tasty.
And making shapes like Mickey Mouse make pancakes extra fun.
I imagine you might have a question or two about making pancakes using muffin mix.
What is the biggest difference between pancake mix and muffin mix?
Pancake mix requires more liquid than muffin mix. Muffin mix is generally more cake-like and dense while pancakes are fluffy and lighter.
Can I use water instead of milk?
Yes, you can. Use the same amount of water to milk. The batter may be just a little less fluffy but you won’t really notice the difference in taste at all.
What is the best consistency for pancake batter?
Pancake batter should be slightly lumpy. It should pour easily and not be too runny. If the batter is too thick, you can add a tablespoon of milk or water to loosen it up a bit. If it is too runny, you can add just a tiny bit of flour until you get the correct consistency.
Should I let the pancake batter rest before cooking?
I have found that letting it rest for at least 5 minutes is helpful. It gives the batter time to develop, and the lumps will smooth out a bit during the rest period.
Can I refrigerate my batter to use later or the next day?
Yes, you definitely can. The batter can be refrigerated for up to 3 – 4 days in an air-tight container or a reclosable plastic bag.
