Chocolate Chunk Pancakes

Morning! I think this morning would have been a really rough start to my day had it not been for the breakfast that got me out of bed. It’s gloomy, hot, humid, and going to thunderstorm on and off all day. Not to mention the weekend can to an abrupt end and somehow its already Monday morning! Only one thing would do… pancakes!

Into the mix went:

I let it sit while I packed my lunch, and then heated up a pan. Last time I made them I used 2 tbsp milk and 3 tbsp egg whites, but the ratio I used today worked a little better, so this is what I’ll stick with going forward. The pancakes were perfect. I ended up adding 1/2 tbsp dark chocolate chunks to each of the two pancakes while they were in the pan:

And the texture of the pancakes was fluffy and delicious! The chocolate chunks got all melty since they were hot in the pan and I topped the them with 1 tbsp Crofter’s Asia and 1/2 a sliced banana.

There were literally chocolate chunks in every bite.

SO good. I think had it not been for these pancakes I wouldn’t be quite so cheerful this morning. Whatever it takes, right?

I’m a busy bee at work today. Be back after lunch!
