Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Recipe inspiration comes from unlikely places.  A sweet gift from my son and his girlfriend resulted in a sweet breakfast idea!

A beautifully packaged pancake mix made a quick meal using only eggs, milk, and syrup from my kitchen.  It occurred to me it would not be difficult to recreate the yummy treat with a few other ingredients.  No pretty package but a pretty plate of steamy pancakes!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup white whole wheat or unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup nonfat liquid egg substitute
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
Warm maple syrup or other toppings, to serve, optional

Preheat griddle to medium high heat.  Measure milk and stir in vinegar; let sit several minutes to curdle.  In medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in egg substitute and curdled milk, then chocolate chips.

Pour about 3 tablespoons batter onto griddle for each pancake.  Flip when bubbles appear and edges begin to look dry.  Pancakes are done when both sides are lightly browned.  Makes 10 pancakes, 2 points plus for Weight Watchers or 69 calories each.
