My 6 year old loves pancakes.  I think between that and muffins, he would never need to eat another breakfast again.  For the longest time he would only eat the frozen ones from the store.  It took me awhile to master homemade pancakes enough for him to request them over the store bought kind.   I did learn a couple tricks to make pancakes super light and fluffy.  First, Buttermilk is key.  I have tried the make your own trick before, and it just isn’t the same.  Could be because I use Skim milk on a daily basis, but I ALWAYS use Buttermilk if I am going to make pancakes.  It isn’t really that expensive, and lasts awhile, so it is a good thing to keep in the fridge.  Second, do not press down on the pancakes after you flip them.  I always did this because they were so thick, but is just makes them tough.  Pancakes that are thick but super light and airy are amazing!  I have even gotten good enough at pancakes, that I can use 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 regular flour and he doesn’t notice! I assume that following these tricks with the box mix will yield the same fluffy results, but I have not tried.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes

One of my 6 year olds favorite pancakes is chocolate chip.  He ordered them at a local restaurant once, and has never turned back!  The other day I was at Target and they had their chocolate chips on sale, so I stocked up on a variety of them.  Peanut Butter/Milk Chocolate was one of the bags I bought. Why not make pancakes with this mix?  PB and Chocolate is good in everything, right?  YES!!  And peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes were born! Instead of normal syrup I melted some peanut butter and chocolate syrup together.  Sinfully delicious.  A tall glass of milk is definitely needed for this breakfast!  This is a great base recipe, feel free to add in whatever is your favorite.

I used my normal base recipe to make these peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes.  Then I just dressed them up!  Great way to make your weekend mornings just a little brighter.  Plus there is some whole wheat flour in there, so you can totally count them and health food, right?  :)  If only it worked that way!
