Pancake muffins with nuts are simply delicious. Full credits go to @leebakers for coming up with the recipe in the first place, but I added some extra something that made it taste a little bit healthier.

  • 1 egg or 1/4 cups of chia seeds
  • 3 Dates or 1/4 cups of chopped dates
  • 1 cup of your favorite Pancake Mix
  • 3/4 cup of water and milk mixed together
  • 1/2 cup of nuts
  • 2 tbsp. of almond butter


  1. Process all ingredients in a blender.
  2. If you want to make muffins with this batter, pour batter either into a nonstick muffin tray or spray some cooking spray over it before pouring in the batter. Then bake at 350*F for 15-17 minutes or if you prefer to serve as a pancake, pour bits by bits batter in a pan and allow to cook for 3 minutes before flipping over.
  3. Serve and enjoy with your favorite fruits usually blueberries, pomegranate seeds and strawberries are a great addition.

Note That:

  1. Dates can be replaced with cacao powder, cinnamon sugar or brown sugar. They are used here to make the batter a bit sweet.
  2. Chia seeds and eggs can be interchanged/ substituted with one another or if you prefer you can make use of flaxseeds. They provide you with protein and fiber you need.
