Silver Dollar Chocolate Chip Pancakes #FoodieExtravaganza

My kids love pancakes- and so do I since they can be made ahead and frozen to be a stand-in meal at any time. When I am away at work and the girls need a quick meal before their sports’ practices, these pancakes are fun and easy to reheat, when popped from the freezer into the microwave.

Why silver-dollar sized? Because they are cute:

And also, since I love the kids to make them on their own, I don’t need to cut these. They can just dip them in the syrup and eat these as finger food. What kid doesn’t love that?!

The recipe is so easy from scratch, but you can of course make these with any pancake mix and add in your chips. If I have the time, and the ingredients on hand, I usually just make them, but I love my Trader Joe’s baking mix too. I have posted this recipe before, for a basic pancake mix, but so you don’t have to click around…here it is (adapted from Better Homes and Garden’s recipe) to make my Silver Dollar Chocolate Chip version:

Silver Dollar Chocolate Chip Pancakes #FoodieExtravaganza

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup of unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • Here's the add-in: 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (or you can use regular size chips)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, Mix dry ingredients with a whisk, so there’s no pocket of the baking powder. ?Make a well in the center, and add egg, milk, oil. Mix all together with a spoon, adding more milk if needed.
  2. I add chocolate chips now and mix gently. Let it sit, while you heat up your griddle. I use a non-stick griddle and spray it evenly. Heat this to medium low (it's ready with the sizzle test: put a drop of water on the pan, and if it sizzles, you are good to go. If not, heat it up a bit more).
  3. Measure out 1 Tablespoon of batter at a time onto the griddle, about 1 inch apart from another. Cook about 2 minutes per side, flipping only when bubbles form on the first side and the edges are a bit dry.
  4. Remove to a rack -not a plate, or they get soggy bottoms (We don't want that!).
  5. Serve warm with your favorite syrup or freeze into baggies for later. I love later!

This amount makes about 36 “silver dollar” sized pancakes, and I usually need more, so I usually double the recipe.

And freeze!

These are a meal-plan staple and such a great make-ahead and freeze item. If you like a “Breakfast for Dinner” type of recipe try my French Toast Sticks too. It’s another finger-food the kids love that I make ahead of time and freeze to have ready.

If you just love pancakes- and we do– then you are in luck!

      Well said, Wendy! This is a super dinner in a pinch- and I seem to always be getting pinched! Plus, they always love them, which makes me feel so much less guilty for feeding them breakfast for dinner all the time!
