Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Aug 29

Growing up, I would cook pancakes almost every weekend. My siblings loved my chocolate chip pancakes, especially my baby sister (although she’s 19 now, so maybe not a baby anymore….). There was a much higher proportion of chocolate chips than any other ingredient, but they were definitely a real crowd pleaser among my family. So when I was home and thinking about making breakfast for my sister and niece and nephew, I knew I had to make chocolate chip pancakes (with a little bit less chocolate chips than normal)!



My nephew, Christian, was a fan. Unfortunately, he wouldn’t sit still for the camera :) He told me I was the best pancake maker ever.

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Servings: 4 people
  • Difficulty: easy


Using a mixer or by hand, mix all ingredients together except the chocolate chips. If batter is still too thick, add a little bit more milk. Then fold in chocolate chips.

Spray the griddle or pan with cooking spray, and turn on the burner to medium/medium-high. To test the griddle or pan, sprinkle a few drops of water. If bubbles sizzles, the heat is just right.

For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter from a measuring cup onto the griddle/pan. Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other sides until golden brown.

Recipe adapted from my mom's copy of the Betty Crocker cookbook.

    Hi Elizabeth. There is nothing like pancakes! I ate them almost everyday during my pregnancy. Your post is making me realize how much I missed them. I need to make a batch this weekend now!
