My family loves loves loves chocolate. I’m a vanilla girl. But I bake with chocolate for the fans in my house. These Milk Chocolate Chip Pancakes hit the spot for everyone! And yes, I even approved.
These pancakes are easy to make and so light and fluffy. Yum! They taste great on their own but I added a little extra butter and syrup for our family. Heaven! I don’t normally make big breakfasts every day but for the weekend or a birthday, this fits the bill for sure. We use the “special plate” for those days. The birthday boy or girl gets to choose whatever they like for breakfast and dinner.

Recipe slightly adapted from My San Francisco Kitchen.
I use Ghiaradelli’s Milk Chocolate Chips- they are the best in my chocolate chip cookies and so good in these pancakes too.
