I would love to add chia seeds to this, to give my littles a little something extra. Could I just add them in as an add in or should I use them in place of the egg as a binder?

I have to be honest, I am not too familiar with chia seeds or how to use them to answer this question accurately.

Do these come out sweet enough for kids who are used to smothering pancakes with syrup? haha

Yes, but when you add toppings, it makes it sweet and fun for them! You can also dip them in syrup or add some syrup to the batter.

Hi! I have pancake mix that only requires water to be added. Should I just follow the directions on the box or should I use your instructions to add milk and egg? Thank you!

@momma lew, I am sorry but you never answered the question. Do you use water or substatute the water with milk and eggs or both water and milk for the muffins. You was not clear. Thank you

Yup! I use the same kind of pancake mix.
