Truth be told, breakfast at our house lately has mainly consisted of cereal, oatmeal, and toast. But I actually love making breakfast for my family when I’m not busy planting bushes, caulking trim, making shelves. . . . you get the idea.

Pancakes are one of my family’s  favorite things to have for breakfast. My boys have been working really hard doing yard work, so I decided to make them a special treat for breakfast. Chocolate Chip Pancakes!chocolate-chip-pancakes-recipe

I served them with fresh whipped cream because I thought syrup plus chocolate chips would be sugar overload. I thought they were just perfect. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were nice and gooey when they were fresh off the grill. I liked them that way, but a couple of my boys said they would have preferred milk chocolate chips. The crazies.

We had our pancakes with scrambled eggs and fruit. I wouldn’t serve these on a regular basis, but if you’re looking for a yummy breakfast treat, surprise your family with some chocolate chip pancakes. They’re sure to love them!

    • My family doesn’t like cooked peaches very much, so I’ve never shared a peach cobbler recipe. I should probably make one for a potluck just so I can share it. 🙂

  2. Kara,

    We just had pancakes this morning and my daughter was requesting chocolate chip ones! 🙂 I love your idea about using whipped cream instead of syrup. Thanks for sharing this at the Inspiration Gallery!
