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.

All Time Favorite Milk Chocolate Chip Pancakes - they are so good and fluffy! A must try recipe.

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.

I use Ghiaradelli’s Milk Chocolate Chips- they are the best in my chocolate chip cookies and so good in these pancakes too.
