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!  

I have a bunch of other breakfast recipes if you are looking for others ideas!

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 1/2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to make 2 1/2 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.
