Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Until this weekend, I’d never before put chocolate chips in my pancakes.

It was…life changing.

I mean, HOW had I not put chocolate chips in my pancakes?  Maybe not the brightest crayon.

These were delicious.  A little lighter than with pumpkin, and not super fluffy but not too dense.  Does that make sense?

Either way, THEY HAVE CHOCOLATE CHIPS.  Maybe this amazes no one but me, but either way – go make them.
