Eggless Chocolate Chip Pancakes (Wheat flour)

How many of you like quick and healthy breakfast ideas? I prefer and am always in search of such quick breakfast that can fill the tummy and also can be guilt free. Pancakes are one such versatile item that can be made in a jiffy and tastes soft and delicious too. I don't like making pancakes with eggs as it becomes very heavy to digest, instead make omelette along with pancakes to complete breakfast menu. Maida or all purpose flour on a long run is not healthy and so end up trying with wheat flour. These wheat flour ones are heavier than maida ones but these are soft. This is one of the simplest pancakes that I have made yet and kids just loved the chocolate bites in it. Whenever I make pancakes,my kids are mad over them and so is with these chocolate chip pancakes. There are no big gadgets required,easy to whip the batter and pour. These are ready in very short time,in fact can be made for a quick healthy snack too. Make smiley faces or your own creative designs with chocolate chips and am sure kids will love these with honey or maple syrup or chocolate syrup,enjoy!!




Preparation time~ 10 minutes
Cooking time~ 10 minutes
Serves~ 4-5 pancakes
Author~ Julie
Ingredients
wheat flour 1 cup
baking powder 1 tbsp
salt 1/4 tsp
sugar (optional) 2-3 tsp
milk 1 cup
vanilla extract 1 tbsp
unsalted butter; melted 1 tbsp
chocolate chips as needed 5tbsp or less

butter to smear 1tbsp


Method
  • Sift the flour,baking powder,sugar(if using) and salt in a bowl. Melt the butter and add to warm milk,mix well. Add in vanilla extract. Add this to the flour little by little till its combined well. There will be small lumps but don't worry that's perfectly ok. As you keep mixing and poring each time the lumps reduce and the batter gets smoother. Add one or two tbsp of milk if needed.The batter consistency is as of thick dosa batter.
  • Heat a pan and smear butter on top. Pour in one full ladle of batter when it is hot and gently tap the center of the pancake to spread a little further on its own. Take about a tbsp or less of chocolate chips and put them on top of the pancake. Let the pancake cook slightly on medium flame. When the pancakes starts to get bubbles all over and the sides look cooked,flip over to turn. Cook another minute and transfer to a plate.

  • Similarly continue to make the other pancakes till you finish the batter. Serve warm with maple syrup or honey or chocolate syrup with a cup of hot milk.

NOTES
* You can use almond milk if not using regular milk.
* You can make the same pancakes with all purpose flour or maida. In that case just 2tsp of baking powder should be good enough.
* I made the kids pancake with sugar in it and ours without sugar. The ones without sugar does taste good as chocolate chip has sugar in it.
* You can be more creative and healthy by adding a mix of chocolate chips with some chopped apples or any other fruit of your choice. Make smiley using chocolate chips for kids.
* If using salted butter,skip adding the salt in the flour.
* I have used Ashirwaad Atta(wheat flour) in these pancakes. You can use any brand of wheat flour.

Hi, Julie.
I've never cooked pancakes. I usually cook crêpes. I love yours with chocolate chips.
I wish I had one now to enjoy its taste.
