Chocolate Chip Pancakes

The dinner of champions.

When I'm left to my own devices, I rely on pancakes, quesadillas, yogurt bowls, or green smoothies. 
This is a favorite lately. It's what I eat when I really just want cookies for dinner. 

(Doctored-Up) Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 cup Bisquick
1 egg
1/2 cup milk (I use unsweetened coconut milk)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix the Bisquick, egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla with a whisk. After all the lumps are whisked out, stir in the chocolate chips.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat a teaspoon or so of canola oil (or butter). Medium heat (I put it on 5 1/2 or 6) and when sprinkled with droplets of water, the oil should pop (I learned that from a Little House book). I also use a paper towel to wipe down the pan with the oil before it gets too hot.

Pour the batter into the size of pancakes you would like and then cook for 3-4 minutes on the first side before flipping. If it doesn't come up easily with a spatula, then that side's not done yet (Rachael Ray taught me that). 

Anyway, this will make 4-6 pancakes, depending on the size. I usually have 3 with syrup and save 1-2 for a snack with peanut butter the next day.
