These pumpkin spice pancake muffins are fast, easy and yummy! This is a fun recipe for leisurely weekends and busy mornings alike!
~ preheat oven to 350 degrees F. ~
for approximately 10 muffins:
3 cups Bisquick baking mix
3 Tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
1 (15 oz.) can pure pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
2 Tablespoons light olive oil, vegetable oil, or canola oil
2 eggs (or egg substitute equivalent)
1 cup milk (dairy or plant based)
1/3 cup brown sugar
cinnamon & sugar for sprinkling over top
Place all ingredients, except the cinnamon & sugar, in a large mixing bowl. Stir until combined and uniform. A few lumps are okay. Don’t overmix or your muffins will become tough.
Spoon into greased or lined muffin tins… or use a Silpat muffin tin which requires no preparation. Sprinkle a little cinnamon & sugar over the tops of the muffins. Bake in preheated oven for 22 to 24 minutes, or until set and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out with only a few crumbs on it.
Slice muffins. Butter, and top with pure maple syrup or jam!
