Chocolate Chip Pancakes

/

I'm not a big breakfast eater. I have too many other things going on in the morning that the thought of sitting down to a larger meal is just unappetizing. So, if I ever have a craving for a breakfast food, I end up making it for dinner.

Which is sometimes desperately needed. There are only so many times you can rotate "chicken, beef, pork, seafood, meatless" through each week before you run out of things that you want to try. That's where breakfast for dinner (never brinner) fits in.

And it doesn't hurt that this is an Abs Diet recipe so its even healthy for you. Well, as healthy as chocolate chip pancakes can be, I guess.

Ingredients:
    • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1 tbsp. baking powder
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1 1/2 cups 2% milk
    • 1 cup plain instant oatmeal 
    • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
    • 1 tsp. vanilla 
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Directions:
1. Preheat a griddle to medium heat.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. In a large bowl, combine the milk, oatmeal, sugar and vanilla.
3. Stir the eggs into the milk mixture and then add in the flour mixture, a little at a time until fully incorporated. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
4. Use a measuring cup and portion out 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake.
5. Pour onto the griddle and flip over when the bubbles form in the middle. Cook until golden brown.

The oatmeal in these pancakes make them incredibly filling. I can usually eat 3-4 smaller pancakes. I was absolutely stuffed after 1 1/2 of them. We put a light syrup on them and I served them with fruit and turkey bacon.
