These Mini Freezer Pancakes are the perfect (and most adorable!) solution for a busy morning. Made with a simple batter and stored in the freezer, you can easily grab a few for a quick and convenient breakfast on the go.
Breakfast has never been so easy. As the most important meal of the day, you don’t want to ever skip breakfast, but as it is also the busiest time of day, it’s easy to forget that pesky rule.
Whether or not you have kids, quick and easy breakfast recipes are essential to keep in your back pocket for those mornings when it feels like the world is collapsing in on itself. (It can’t be just me that feels like this from time to time, right…?)
These Mini Freezer Pancakes are super easy to whip up, store away in the freezer, and reheat in the morning for breakfast. Plus, they’re cute and a fun finger food!
If you do have children, you’ll thank me times ten, because this is an extremely fun way to get them to eat in the morning. You can dip these bad boys into maple syrup, peanut butter, Nutella, powdered sugar, and so on. No one would fault you for turning them into a mini pancake cereal either.
I love how easy it is to make and store these. They also stay freezer-friendly for up to 3 months! You can spend less than an hour to batch some Mini Freezer Pancakes and have a great grab-and-go breakfast ready to go for the next quarter.
Whether you’re bolting out the door to get to the office on time or need a quick and easy way to get the kids off to school or something in between, this time-saving breakfast recipe is unbelievably helpful to have on hand in case of emergency. (And it doesn’t hurt that it tastes great.)
These freezer pancakes are super simple to make. The best part is “mini” can mean whatever you want it to! I like to make them into golf-ball-sized pancakes, but you can go as big or as little as you want.
All you have to do is mix up your favorite pancake mix or make your own (my recipe is below), and ladle the batter onto a greased low-to-medium heat skillet in the size that you prefer.
During this step, the key is to stir the batter just enough to incorporate the wet and dry ingredients. Whether you use a box mix or a homemade pancake batter, overbeating will make your final product tough and chewy instead of soft and fluffy.
You can use a plain pancake batter or something with toppings, such as blueberry, chocolate chip, or more. Just like regular-sized pancakes, you could add in your favorites like nuts or berries for a fun, custom variation!
Let both sides cook for about 30-45 seconds, depending on the size of your pancake. Remember, the smaller you make these little pancakes, the less time they will need to cook into a nice brown color.
You’ll know when it’s time to flip when you see air bubbles rise to the surface throughout the pancakes (not only the perimeter!).
Once both sides are cooked, transfer your mini pancakes to a plate to cool down. You can either serve them hot or put them into a Ziploc bag or airtight container to store in the freezer.
You can easily pull them out on those fast-paced mornings and throw them in the microwave for 30 seconds to heat back up and eat them as a delicious, easy Mini Freezer Pancake breakfast.
