Why We Opted for Pre-Made Pancake Mix
Making pancakes from scratch can be a lengthy process, with multiple steps and ingredients that need to be mixed together before they hit the skillet, or in this case the oven. Using pancake mix is a great way to save time in the kitchen! Pancake mix comes in boxes or bags and usually only requires you to add water (or sometimes milk) and an egg. Some mixes are even vegan, so there’s an option for everyone!

We LOVE The Bananas in These Banana Pancake Puffs!
Bananas can be used in so many different ways to add flavor and texture to your morning meal!
These pancake puffs bake up quickly in the oven, making them a great option for rushed mornings when you still want something special for breakfast. The batter is easy to make and can be whipped together in just minutes.
How Long Will These Last After Cooking?
These banana pancake puffs will stay fresh and delicious for up to three days after they’re cooked. To maximize their longevity, it’s important to store them in an airtight container. This helps keep moisture out and stops them from going stale too quickly. You can also make an extra batch and freeze them, just grab them out of the freezer, warm them up and breakfast is done! We love meal-planning to save time when we can 🙂
