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.
