Apple spice pecan muffins and chocolate chip ranger cookies are recipes made using Krusteaz pancake mix. The muffin recipe requires Krusteaz Apple Spice Pancake Mix and makes 10 to 12 muffins, while the cookie recipe utilizes the Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix and yields two dozen cookies.
To make the apple spice pecan muffins, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine 2 cups of Krusteaz Apple Spice Pancake Mix with 1 cup of cool water, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and one egg in a medium-size bowl. Add in 1/2 cup of chopped pecans, 1/2 cup of grated carrots, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Lightly grease a muffin pan and spoon the batter about two-thirds of the way full. Bake muffins for 15 to 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick through the center of a muffin to test that it's cooked through. A clean toothpick indicates the muffins are finished.
For the ranger cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix 1/2 cup of softened butter, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar until well combined. Add in one egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in 1 cup Krusteaz Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix, 1 cup of crispy rice cereal, 1 cup of quick oats, and 1/2 cup of coconut flakes. Lightly grease a baking sheet and drop tablespoon-size dollops of cookie dough onto it. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes until the edges are slightly browned.
