Chocolate Chip Pancakes
1 cup flour (heap the cup a little, in a 4 batch we use about 1/4 cup extra flour)
2t. baking powder
1 egg ( normal store sized eggs, we have a mixed flock of chickens including bantys so sometimes use more eggs when making multiples. Most recipes are written for a 1/4 cup egg )
1 cup milk (scant unless you live somewhere much dryer than us or like thin pancakes)
The last time Owen was in the hospital they were re-working their menu. Due to Owen's unique eating needs the nurses had given his an open status on his menus. That meant that we were supposed to be able to order him anything the cafeteria served. When we tried to order for him the kitchen kept saying that he wasn't allowed to have pancakes though. For some reason French toast is considered "healthy" for toddlers but pancakes aren't. Owen loves pancakes, but won't eat French toast. We had to have both the nurse and the dietician call the kitchen to finally get his pancakes. Then when they were delivered, he took one bite and refused to eat them because they weren't homemade. So, be warned, if you make this recipe, your kids may never want to go back to a mix!
