This pancake/cupcake hybrid recipe takes a boring old pancake and morphs it into a delicious and healthy breakfast cupcake with a strawberry greek yogurt topping which is, by far, way more FUN! Even better, it’s easy and quick to make.
Although I love these pupcakes, I created this recipe with kids in mind. I wanted it to be both healthy and fun for them. And I’m happy to report it was a success!
If you are looking for breakfast ideas for kids or something you can send in the lunch box to school with the kids (or take yourself), then this is the recipe for you. You can pack the yogurt and syrup separately or just skip it all together (it’s great with or without)!
Added bonus: they freeze well.
Happy baking and eating!
