If you’re like me, breakfast with the kids can be pretty hit-or-miss. Some days they’ll eat whatever I set in front of them. Other days they’ll ask for something specific (and might not eat a bite of it). They’ll have favorites one day, that they hate the next.
So I am always happy when I find something that they (almost) always eat happily, are easy to put together, makes extras that store well, and are delicious to boot. This is how it was when I found out about “puffins,”
No, not the bird.
Puffins are, essentially, just muffins made with a pancake-like batter. It gives you this awesome pancake/muffin hybrid that doesn’t require a long time by the stove flipping anything. Maple-syrup is added right to the batter to make them sweet already (which, in our house at least, avoids some major mess) but if you’r adventurous I suppose you could make mini versions of these and dip ’em in all sorts of sweet goodness. As always, experiment, and enjoy!
