Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Let’s be real. Sometimes indulging in chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast is a good thing.
I love pancakes but I don’t eat them often. However, I do make them often. Ken loves pancakes and often requests them for breakfast. Sometimes I make plain pancakes, sometimes I make blueberry pancakes and sometimes I make chocolate chip pancakes. They’re always homemade and when Ken requests them, I stick to a classic pancake recipe rather than reaching for the healthier ingredients. I’ve made them with whole wheat flour, without egg and even gluten free but none of them compare to a classic pancake recipe. The boy knows what he likes.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

These pancakes taste very similar to the homemade pancakes my mom made when I was a kid. I don’t remember her ever putting chocolate chips in the pancakes but that’s okay. Pancakes sans chocolate chips didn’t ruin my childhood.
These pancakes are easy to make and only require one bowl for mixing. Use a measuring cup to measure out the batter or do what I do – eyeball it. Top each pancake with a sliver of your favorite spread – butter or non-dairy spread. Drizzle the stack with pure maple syrup. It’s the best syrup around. ♥︎

  21. these pancakes taste great, but dont cook well with almond flour.. mine are falling apart 

    • Hello, I’m sorry they didn’t work for you with almond flour. I’ve never made them with almond flour but I think using almond flour requires changing some of the other ingredients as well. If you’re looking for a gluten free version, you could try King Arthur GF All Purpose flour. Replace regular AP flour 1:1 with the King Arthur flour. Hope this helps!
