Freshly baked muffins in the house are not only a welcome delicious treat, but also practical in a busy lifestyle. Whether for a quick on-the-go breakfast, or a school lunch side – muffins are mighty useful additions to our day and diets. However, quickly making a fresh batch customized to everyone’s individual liking’s isn’t always the easiest task (if you’re a parent this will be especially true…). With a simple batter made from something you likely already have in your cupboard,  pancake mix – you can whip these up in only a couple minutes. We decided to split the batter in three, making 3 varieties of muffins using the same pancake mix batter base. The results were a pan filled with an assortment of muffins, from sweet to savory. While I’d love to promise that these will last you all week – truthfully, ours didn’t last 24 hours. So, it’s good that they’re pretty quick and easy to make, because it looks like we will be making them again…and again…(and again).
