Chocolate Chip Pancakes

To say that the girls like pancakes would by an understatement. They are true pancake fanatics. They have a favorite diner in town and want to eat there all the time because they serve gluten free pancakes. At least once a week they ask for pancakes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The most requested type: chocolate chip (pumpkin pie is a close second). I always have to make sure I have a never ending supply of mini chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

2 cups gluten free flour blend
1 T + 2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
5T brown sugar (or white sugar, but brown sugar makes them taste more like cookies)
1 1/3 - 1 1/2 cups milk (depends on the consistency you want & I swear it's different every time I make them)
4T melted butter or oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
about 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Whisk together dry ingredients until completely mixed. Add in wet ingredients until only small lumps remain. Let sit a few minutes while griddle heats. Pour 1/8-1/4c batter on griddle. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let cook until bubbles come to surface and pop. Flip pancakes and cook until just set. Do not over cook or you'll burn your chocolate chips.

Serve as is or with whipped cream or ice cream.

 *The sooner you sprinkle the chocolate chips, the more incorporated they'll be in the pancake. I usually do 2 pancakes, sprinkle them with chocolate chips and then do more.
