Breakfast Lunch


If there is one thing my Monkey loves, it's breakfast. Whether it's at actual breakfast time, lunch, dinner, or snack, she doesn't care. Today will feature the first breakfast lunch of the 2013-2014 school year! I don't know about your kids, but pancakes are ALWAYS a good thing in my house. Now that we're getting so close to fall I have been chomping at the bit to start working with pumpkin again, a family favorite around here. Usually the standby pumpkin recipe in this house is Honey Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins. If you click the name of them it'll take you right to our recipe! They're delicious, made from scratch, aren't made with granulated sugar, and typically don't last long in this house! If you haven't tried them I would STRONGLY recommend them. Today however we tried something different! 

These might look like the Honey Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins you see on the recipe page but they aren't!


So while making this lunch it made my house smell AMAZING. I didn't follow the recipe EXACTLY. It just says ''milk''. I assume that means conventional cows milk which we don't drink anymore. I used my unsweetened vanilla almond milk and they still turned out great. Also, instead of making cute little pancakes out of them, I sprayed my mini muffin pan, added approximately 1/8 cup of batter to each spot, and baked at 350 for about 12-15 minutes. I simply used the toothpick method to assess them. They're delicious and if you are looking for a new pancake recipe I think this one is a winner! 

What's your favorite ''breakfast lunch''? 

Happy Packing!


  1. I love breakfast lunch. Patty

  2. Well if you have the time to make some pancakes I would recommend this recipe! Or the Honey Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins on our recipe page. I know my fiance LOVES them. :)

  3. Yum! I am going to make regular pancake bites in my mini muffin pans. I think I will try these too! My son is a pancake fanatic so I bet he will enjoy both recipes. Thanks for posting! Lunch Box Love from Yummy Bites!

  4. We have done a basic pancake mix and put the batter in the standard muffin pan and let each person pick their mix ins. Things like berries, little cooked sausage bits, slivered almonds, jam, flax etc...

  5. Thanks for stopping by Jessica, I am glad you liked it. :)
