Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix Muffins

Use pancake mix for something besides pancakes! These Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix Muffins are super soft, delicious and easy to make in one bowl. Freezer friendly and perfect for your Fall breakfast meal prep!



  • 1 cup 100% pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups ‘just add water’ pancake mix (I prefer Kodiak Cakes!)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • optional topping: pumpkin seeds or chocolate chips


  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350F. Use cooking spray or avocado oil to grease a 12 count muffin pan, or use baking muffin liners.
  2. Mix ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk the pumpkin puree, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg until well combined. Add the pancake mix, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon, then mix until combined.
  3. Portion & bake: Divide all the batter between the prepared 12 muffin tin wells. They’ll be filled about 3/4 of the way to the top. Sprinkle the tops with pumpkin seeds or chocolate chips if you want! Bake muffins in the preheated oven for 20-22 minutes. Muffins are done baking when a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Serve & store: Let them cool for a couple minutes, then use a butter knife around the edges of the muffins to gently loosen from the sides. Place muffins on a cooling rack and let them cool completely. They are delicious immediately and the days after! Store muffins in a sealed container or food storage bag on the counter and enjoy within 4 days. For long term storage, wrap muffins individually in foil, label, and then store in a freezer safe food storage bag in the freezer for 4-6 months for best quality.


Pancake Mix: Your pancake mix should be a ‘just add water’ variety and should include “leavener” or “leavening agents” (baking soda should be one of them). You can double check this in the ingredients list.
