Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Last week week was super busy with Kids Crusade and a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. Most of this week was spent at the hospital with my mom. We have ate so much take out and junk food ya’ll! When I mysteriously ended up with a quiet evening to myself I went for comfort food, chocolate chip pancakes. The combination of chocolate and maple are heaven. Seriously!! If you’ve never had chocolate chip pancakes, you’ve got to try them.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 1/4 c milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted

Combine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle, making pancakes the size you desire. Sprinkle chocolate chips onto the batter. Flip pancakes when bubbles start to appear. Remove pancakes when lightly browned.

All I can say is Yummm!!!


No Bake Cookies

Nathan walked into the kitchen and asked me if I could please, please, please make his favorite cookies. Considering it takes roughly five minutes to whip out a batch I knew I would be able to make my fella happy.

No Bake Cookies

In a large pan boil for one minute:

  • 2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1/2 c milk

Remove from heat then add:

  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 1/4 c cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 c oatmeal

Mix well. Drop by a teaspoon onto wax paper. Let set until firm.

These are at the top of my list for favorite cookies so I have to be careful how often I make them. I have been known to eat more than I should once or twice 😉
