Is there anything better than chocolate for breakfast?!
These chocolate chip pancakes are a staple in my house. Everyone loves them and I love that I can make a big batch and the kids can just reheat them as needed. They are light and fluffy and just perfect for chocolate lovers!

How To Make Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- Prepare. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat.
- Combine dry ingredients. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
- Add wet ingredients. Add eggs and buttermilk and whisk everything together. There should be small lumps in the batter.
- Add chocolate. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
- Cook. Use a ⅓ cup measure to pour batter onto preheated pan. Let cook until bubbles form on top of the batter, 2-3 minutes. Flip over and cook an additional 1 minute or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
Tips For Making Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- I always use my electric griddle for pancakes – it makes the process go faster and makes perfect pancakes
- If you don’t have buttermilk, mix 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice to enough milk to measure a full cup. Let sit for a few minutes. (For this recipe, it’s 2 ½ tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to make 2 ½ cups.)
Can You Freeze Pancakes?
Yes, these pancakes freeze perfectly! I like to freeze them in a freezer ziploc bag (make sure to squeeze out as much air as possible) and they will stay good for up to 2 months.
Defrost them overnight in the refrigerator and then you can reheat in the microwave, toaster, or the oven.
