Chocolate Chip Pancakes

     If you have been following for a while, you know we really love our pancakes and waffles. We eat them every Friday morning. Lately, since my husband got a new job, I make huge batches and freeze the extras so that he can let me sleep in eat them before he goes to work. For an on-the-go breakfast, Heat a frozen pancake in the microwave and top with peanut butter. Fold up like a taco, and get on your way.
     Usually, I just make plain pancakes, but I went all out last week and added mini-chocolate chips. I hate when you bite into a chocolate chip pancake and all you taste is chocolate. Don't get me wrong, I love chocolate! I just don't want to eat something that sweet and rich for breakfast. Mini chocolate chips were the perfect compromise. You still taste the chocolate, but it's note overpowering the whole pancake.
     In addition to the chocolate chips, this particular recipe includes oatmeal. This makes me feel less guilty about serving pancakes to my two year old every Friday! They are super filling and mostly healthy.
     If you want to freeze them....Cool completely and layer wax paper between each pancake in a resealable freezer bag.

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbl baking powder
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups milk
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 Tbl brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  • In a different bowl, mix the milk, oatmeal, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in the eggs and then add the flour mixture a little at a time. Stir in the chocolate chips. Stir until just combined. 
  • Coat a griddle (or skillet) with spray. pour about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. 
  • When the edges are cooked and little bubbles form in the middle, flip the pancake over. Cook until golden. 
  • Serve with syrup or peanut butter.

  1. My little man requests pancakes quite often. I like to surprise him with chocolate chip pancakes some mornings. I love seeing his face when he realizes he gets chocolate with breakfast. I will need to make him a special breakfast for being so good for the babysitter last night. Great recipe. Thanks!

  2. I've never spread peanut butter over a pancake but I can imagine how delicious that would be!
