Chocolate Chip Pancakes

We are having one of those rare snow days in Texas today so everyone is snuggled at home! I was surprised that they cancelled school at 10pm last night before there was even any precipitation. But of course, it was a good call as there is a lot of ice (and some snow) out there this morning. So far, my husband's work is delayed 2 hours, but we're still hoping that they cancel. Even if they don't cancel, he'll work from home, so that's not too bad.

Anyway, back to the food! We eat pancakes quite often around here and I've had a chocolate chip pancake on my list to try so why not today? These turned out very fluffy with a hint of chocolate goodness. Not surprising, but these did not last long at all! Guess the kids are fueling up to go play in the bitter cold!! I'm sure you could simply add chocolate chips to your favorite recipe for a yummy result. The kids prefer their pancakes plain while Tony enjoyed his with syrup. I was somewhere in between and just used butter. :-)

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk (I used 2%)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the chocolate chips. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, pour batter onto a hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top and cook until brown.
