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.

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Pancakes
adapted liberally from Mark Bittman’s How To Cook Everything Vegetarian

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
6 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1.5 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
10 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup milk
 4 eggs
1 medium cooked, peeled and mashed sweet potato
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup chocolate chips, not optional
3/4 cup toasted and chopped pecans, somewhat optional
1. Whisk together butter, milk, eggs, sweet potato, vanilla and oil together.
2. Whisk together flours, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.  Gently whisk wet ingredients into dry ones until just combined.  Fold in chocolate chips and pecans, if using (which you should be).
3. Cook on greased skillet on medium heat until bubbles start to break the surface.  Flip and cook until other side is golden.  Serve with fruit and maple syrup.
