Treat Yo-Self Tuesday: Breakfast in Bed Muffins

My girlfriend came up with this recipe one morning in February. She likes to call them "Aunt Jemima and Haphazard Decisions Muffins" because these were made originally out of everything in the kitchen we needed to use up! Milk about to expire? This recipe uses a full cup! Have extra walnuts from that salad you never ate? Toss 'em in! Have those golden raisins been sitting in your fridge for longer than you would like to admit? Well thankfully, those get thrown into the mix too. Surprisingly, this mix of strange ingredients comes out to make a delicious muffin. 

Breakfast in Bed Muffins:
1 Cup Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix
1 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Cup Milk
1/3 Cup Oil
1 Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Apple
Golden Raisins
Maple Syrup 
(Use as much as you see fit of the above three ingredients)

1. Set oven to 400 degrees
2. Combine all dry ingredients (pancake mix, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon)
3. Whisk together wet ingredients (milk, oil, egg, vanilla)
4. Chop apples into small, but chunky bits. Combine with walnuts (I used the jumbo pieces and crushed them in my hand before putting them into the mix), and raisins. 
5. Mix all of it together, and put in a lined muffin tin.
6. Sprinkle with sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw) and bake for 14 minutes, or until cooked throughout.

Do any of you all have breakfast in bed traditions? Comment below and share! 


  1. My BnB traditions usually involve bacon and then fried eggs with either hot sauce or a homemade avocado spread :D And fruit, if I have any. Ooh. Or crepes.

    1. Homemade avocado spread, you say? Do elaborate!
