Pleasing The Picky: Chocolate-Chip Pancakes

Waking up for breakfast surrounded by the small and picky, I wondered what they would agree upon to eat (not that I would have presented a choice but it wasn't up to me).

I suggested pancakes and there were a few whines of dissent until one little voice said, "I'll have mine with chocolate chips."

Chocolate chips . The magic word.

A chorus of voices were suddenly piped up in favor of pancakes and although I try to avoid chocolate for breakfast, in the interest of being agreeable, I consented. I suppose a few mini-chips wouldn't hurt anyone (read Izzy).

This is the recipe I used, sprinkling a few mini-chips onto each pancake .

Even the pickiest asked for seconds.
