{Toddler Approved} Fruit & Pancake Bites

Last week I hosted a coffee playdate. My moms group started doing one a week this year.  It's a chance for the moms to catch up, enjoy some coffee and let the kids run wild.  I wanted to have a bunch of bite sized snacks for the kids. Since it was a 10am playdate, I decided to make these pancake and fruit bites. 

I used an entire box of pancake mix to make about 60 mini pancake bites.  I put half out for the playdate and froze the other half.  They were a hit with the kiddos, definitely a recipes I'll be making for years to come.  Enjoy! 

A box of your favorite pancake mix.  
Fruit of your choice
 *I used an 8oz bag of mixed frozen fruit, which included peaches, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries*  

1.  Preheat oven to 350. 
2. Spray mini muffin tins with cooking spray. 
3.  Prepare pancakes according to the directions on the box.  I used the entire box and made about 60 muffins. 
4. Use a small cookie scoop, fill with a scoop of the pancake batter. 
4. Top with fruit, pressing the fruit down just a bit. 
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes. 
6. Remove to a cooling rack after a few minutes & let them cool. 

***You can also top with bananas, chocolate chips, bacon, nuts…the possibilities are endless***


  1. Thank you for sharing these!! They will be perfect for my baby girl (16 months old). I am going to see how they turn out in my cake ball machine, and I am definitely trying some bacon in them. I plan on making quite a few and freezing them for busy weekday mornings. Any tips on freezing them?

  2. Did you thaw the fruit first, or just throw it in frozen? These seem perfect for my busy mornings!
