Breakfast Lunch

If there is one thing Monkey loves it is breakfast lunch! I realized I hadn't made one in a while so thought it was a good time to bust out the muffin pan and make some pancake muffins. 

Monkey was excited to pick out her mix-ins. I sat out various items on the counter including frozen berries we got this last summer while they were cheap, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, slivered almonds, and a few other items. She was really worried that I would do it while she was in the shower, so I waited, so don't let her disheveled damp look throw ya! Haha. 

  • Pancake Muffins (Monkey chose blueberry almond and raspberry/blueberry with a couple white chocolate chips). 
  • Hard boiled egg
  • String Cheese
  • Grapes
  • A little whipped cream
  • Juice box
She was very excited to take this with her to school today. I realized when taking the picture that we ended up with a lot of white in this box! Lol. I typically hope for a bit more color but she enjoyed the food. 

If you want to make your own Pancake Muffins they are super easy!

Take your own pancake batter and fill your muffin tin about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way full. Add your mix-ins and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. If you make any, would love to see them and hear what kind of mix-ins you and your family enjoyed! 

Happy Packing! 


  1. Such a yummy idea. We are in the process of clearing our food from our cupboards, and have open pancake mix and dried fruits/nuts. Great idea!

    1. Glad you like it Sarah! Would love to hear how you like them :)
