We have a love/love relationship with pancakes in my house. There is never a wrong time to whip up a batch. My love of pancakes, especially chocolate chip pancakes, started when I was very young. My family always took car vacations and my father would always stop at a pancake house along the highway.
We were allowed to order whatever we wanted, with the condition that we had to finish whatever we ordered. My brothers and I would order chocolate chip pancakes that were bigger than our heads and never left a single bite.
Happily, my kids embraced my love of pancakes and will eat chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If I am ever at a loss for meal ideas, breakfast is always my default and pancakes are always at the top of the list.
This recipe is simple to make, whether you or gluten free or not. Even before being gluten free, I made my pancakes from scratch using this this recipe with regular all purpose flour. When money was tight, I found that it was cheaper to use what I had in my pantry and we liked the taste better. When we became gluten free, I simply changed the flour that I used, and it worked perfectly. Sometimes, depending on our mood and what we had, we would add more chocolate chips. My kids would always jump at the chance to add more chocolate.
Chocolate Chip pancakes are perfect for rainy or sunny days, happy or sad days. We have never found a day when these pancakes didn’t make everyone just a little bit happier.
