Grandma Cathy is always looking to turn fruit into a quick snack or breakfast for a picky eater. Pancakes with chocolate chips are a favorite which is why the add-ins work. Getting this 1st grader out the door with something to eat in the car is easy with these pancakes!

  2. Heat medium sized heavy skillet. Butter the skillet with 1 tbsp of melted butter or avocado oil.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup or less pancake batter onto your skillet
  4. Heat low and slower due to natural sugars in batter so it doesn’t burn

  6. Serve with syrup or fruit, or cool to have as a take along on the ride to school
