  • Mini Muffin Pan
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Mixing Bowl (2)


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips


  • Generously grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with nonstick spray.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk. 
  • In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly and remove from the pan. You may need to use a toothpick around the edges to separate the pancake muffins from the pan.
  • Serve immediately with warmed butter if you like or even just with maple syrup.


  • If you’re having a problem with your chocolate chips sinking to the bottom, you can try rolling the chocolate chips in flour first, or use mini chocolate chips.
