Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Have you ever woken up and just thought…

MMM Chocolate.

Yep – happens to the best of us.

Your body should crave healthy things like protein… or whole grain… or… well really anything of nutritional value!

But nope – you want chocolate.

Guess what? You’re an adult!

You might act like a five-year-old, but that’s your business!

So if you want chocolate for breakfast, gosh-darnit! You can have chocolate for breakfast!

And then, two-three hours after breakfast – you will be hungry again! And possibly crashing into a sugar coma, but you know – that’s okay too – because you make your own choices!

These chocolate chip pancakes are fast, easy and delicious. pancakes3 Oozing with rich, decadent chocolate – you might just have to lick your plate clean post-pancake-demolition!

There’s only one problem with these pancakes…

You might not actually get any on the plate! Because they taste soo good – and you’ll want to eat them straight out the pan!

Ingredients

For the Pancakes:

1 1/4 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 cup milk (1 cup buttermilk – or 3/4 cup milk and 1/3 sour cream)

3/4 – 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Butter or vegetable oil for cooking (usually I use cooking spray – but here the real fat will make a difference)

Toppings (Choose one or multiple!):

Maple syrup, optional

Whipped cream, optional

Butter, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt – stir until combined. Pour wet ingredients into dry, folding together until just moistened. Add chocolate chips.
  3. Add butter or oil to a large, flat skillet – put skillet over medium heat. 
  4. Once butter or oil has heated, use a measuring cup (1/4, 1/3, or 1/2 depending on desired pancake size) to drop batter onto hot pan. The number of pancakes you can fit will depend on pan and pancake size.
  5. Allow pancakes to cook on first side for a few minutes – until batter begins to bubble, then flip those pancakes!
  6. Allow pancakes to cook on second side for another minute or two, before removing from skillet. Serve immediately, or place on plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm, then serve when all pancakes are ready!
  7. Eat with whipped cream, butter, maple syrup, and/or confectioners’ sugar! YUM!

Storage: Pancakes are best when served fresh – if necessary, refrigerate (without toppings) in airtight container for up to 1 day.
