I Tried It and I Liked It: Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I found this recipe over at allrecipes.com. I didn't know if it would work with freshly ground wheat, but it did! I used white wheat, finely ground.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1 cup honey
1/2 cup butter or margarine, cubed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine eggs, milk and oil; add to dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour the batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown. Keep warm.
Combine the syrup ingredients in a 2-cup microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high until butter is melted and syrup is hot, stirring occasionally. Serve with pancakes.

My notes: I didn't use two tablespoons of baking powder, I used two teaspoons. I subbed olive oil for the vegetable oil because that's what I had on hand. The syrup sounded great, but I decided against adding any more sugar - especially since we ate these for dinner; we didn't have anything on them and they were great. Luke asked for white chocolate chips in them instead of semi-sweet and they were great!
