The Best Pancake Recipe Ever

pancakesI come from a long line of talented pancake makers. My Grandpa Witte made the most amazing pancakes, and my father makes pretty great pancakes himself as well. Although I also love to get crazy with the pancakes and make fun ones in shapes and rainbows, this tried and true chocolate chip pancake recipe is hands down the best. This one is so easy that the kids love helping out too, and they always turn out delicious. Perfect for a lazy Sunday morning, enjoy! Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup milk (you can also use coconut milk, flax milk or any non-dairy alternative)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips (they melt better and more evently than regular sized)
