Chocolate chip blueberry buttermilk pancakes

Did you know that it is Pancake Week? I didn't. I rarely to never make pancakes, and I happened to do so on Pancake Week. How odd! I wanted to make a special breakfast-y meal for Elijah on his birthday, so I figured I couldn't go wrong combining chocolate, blueberries and pancakes. They were super tasty! This recipe made a huge batch, so we have been eating pancakes for breakfast all week. On Pancake Week! Again, odd.

In a medium bowl, combine:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, combine:

3 cups buttermilk

3 eggs

1/2 cup butter, melted

Add the flour mixture to the batter and stir until just combined. Do not over-mix!

Add:

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Stir carefully, just until combined.

Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and spray it with cooking spray. Use a 3/4-cup measuring cup to scoop the pancake batter onto the hot skillet. The batter will be very thick, so use the back of a spoon to shape each pancake into a circle (or whichever shape you wish).

When bubbles begin to form, flip the pancake with a spatula and cook until the batter is no longer runny. I actually had to perform the toothpick test on a few of these due to major fluffiness.

Serve warm, with butter and syrup!

The great thing about this recipe is that you can add and subtract filler ingredients to tailor to your liking. Omit the chocolate chips and blueberries for a fluffy buttermilk pancake recipe. Or replace the chips and berries with apple slices or raisins or another type of fruit.

Happy Pancake Week! 

I can't go without sharing the photo of me eating my "staging" plate. :)

bberries AND choc chips? be still my heart!

These look wonderful! My family loves pancakes, especially if there are chocolate chips involved (and I love that they eat the fruit!)

Happy Pancake Week! I had no idea either. I have been seeing a few more recipes this week. I was starting to think I needed to have a good brunch this weekend with a stack myself. These look delicious!

Meagn, You are amazing! I'm on a flight to Phoenix tonight and I'm pretty sure Delta is not serving anything remotely as delicious as these pancakes! When I get ready to indulge, these look to be the ticket. Pancakes, blueberries and chocolate, three things I love!
