Desert for Breakfast: Chocolate Chip Pancakes

The best part of the weekend is making pancakes on Saturday mornings. We usually like adding frozen blueberries or bananas, but recently we had the craving for chocolate. We didn't think that chocolate would go well with my Wheat and Honey mix, so I made the pancake recipe from William Sonoma Breakfast (thanks to Patti). Instead of chocolate chips, I added decadent chocolate chunks that melt into the batter.

I liked the Williams Sonoma recipe so much that I decided to make a large batch of it to keep for the future. This way, I don't have to continually buy pancake mix, and it saves money. I highly recommend this homemade pancake recipe, and of course, adding the chocolate!

Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes (adapted from William Sonoma Breakfast)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbs. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients, then slowly add the beaten egg and milk. Do not overmix the batter (it will be thick). Preheat a nonstick griddle and spray with cooking spray. Ladle 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles appear all over the surface. Flip, and let cook about a minute longer. Enjoy!

Makes about 2 servings (6 pancakes). To use for the future, mix several batches of the dry ingredients and keep in a closed container.
