Recipe Notes

  • Use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like for this recipe. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, bittersweet chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips would all be delicious.
  • Don't skip the five minutes of rest time. This lets the gluten relax, resulting in the fluffiest pancakes.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
  2. In another mixing bowl, stir together the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until just combined. 
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes. 
  5. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little butter or spray with nonstick cooking spray. 
  6. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan for each pancake. Top with additional chocolate chips, if desired. 
  7. Cook for about 3 minutes or until you see bubbles form. Flip the pancakes over and cook until cooked through. Serve hot with desired toppings.
