Since we are still getting healthy after a few having the flu, I have really been lax about cooking. I had a request for Chocolate Chip Pancakes like I had made over the weekend.
I really liked the pancakes, but thought that I could make them just a little healthier. So I omitted 1 tablespoon of the oil and added unsweetened applesauce in its place. I used almond milk instead of soy (it’s what I had) and went with half chocolate half white baking chips. These were a big hit. Maybe even more of a hit with some…
Now that everyone is over their illnesses I have a list of things that I want to make (and eat!). So be on the lookout for a flurry of recipes in the coming weeks!
Stay healthy my friends!
I included the nutritional counts for this recipe. The counts are per 1 pancake.
