It's a hot day. The chocolate chips are melting in the cupboard. I need to do something about it... how about Chocolate Chip Pancakes for our afternoon snack? Sounds like a plan.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes
makes enough to fill 3-4 tummies
Prepare all the ingredients you need.
1 cup flour (sifted 3x)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extact
1/2 cup chocolate chips (you can add more if you wish)
butter or oil (for cooking)
In a large bowl, beat egg. Add milk, butter and vanilla, mix well.
Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until mostly smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips and let batter set for a few minutes.
Heat non-stick pan over low heat. Grease the pan with butter or 1/2 teaspoon cooking oil. Pour 2 Tablespoons of batter onto the pan. Cook on the first side until bubbles that form start to pop. You can also gently lift up the pancake to make sure the bottom is not overcooking. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Serve with maple syrup.
