Blueberry Pancake Muffins

I am officially snowed in.

If you saw the picture on instagram last night, that’s nothing compared to now. The snow didn’t stop for 7 hours. We have over a foot on the ground that is now frozen over again after the frigid night.

And if you’re thinking that I have a good cuddle buddy in Maggie, that’s normally true, but not when there’s snow on the ground. If it’s snowing, she wants to be out in it, rolling in it, burying herself in it, inhaling so much of it as she runs around that she coughs and hacks for a full 5 minutes once she’s back in the house. Fun? Yes. Fun to take outside for bathroom breaks when it’s freezing and you just want to go back inside? Not so much.

So even though we’re snowed in today, I’m sure there will be plenty of playing in the snowy yard for her, and plenty of hot coffee and breakfast for me.

I made these little muffins last week, but now I’m really wishing I had them today. On the lighter side, they are the perfect breakfast with some fruit and yogurt and they make a great afternoon snack with some hot tea or coffee.

  7. I’m kind of in love with this idea. We had a snow day today too. Our dog, HATES it. We have to force him outside. There should be a happy medium ; )

  8. That’s so crazy how much snow you got. Like Claire said, they were anticipating us to have a “horrible” rush hour home and we’d get 3-5 inches and not even A FLAKE landed in Northern VA. Awesome. Now feed me muffins to make me happy :)

  9. These look wonderful! No better excuse than a snow day to get baking!!

  10. These are lovely little muffins – we’re not quite snowed in but have had several inches over the last couple of days so the idea of a muffin fresh from the oven is very appealing!

  11. Great idea to turn pancakes into muffins! I would love a couple of these with my morning coffee!

  12. I love blueberry muffins. In fact, they are my favorite muffin, and one I never bake. I don’t know why either. I love that your recipe uses maple syrup as well as applesauce. What brand of wholewheat flour do you use? I always tend to feel like it comes out so heavy … Thanks!

  13. Love these!! Adding maple syrup is genius!

  14. love good uses for buttermilk :)

  15. I on the other hand had to flip on the air conditioner today because it was crazy hot out for January in Georgia!
