Happiness Is…Recipe: Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes


Pin It

Happiness is a rainy day at home with my littles.  Gabriel  and Ethan are both home from school because they both still had fever last night.  But, they are feeling better this morning.  A lazy, restful day at home is just what the doctor…and the momma…ordered.



Happiness is witnessing the kind, loving, gentle nature of my littles.  As a mom, I can honestly say that those are qualities that are extremely important to me in raising my children.


Happiness is a Valentine’s Day that just kept going and going.


Happiness is being a mom.


Happiness is having a papa who loves to humor his little girl.


Happiness is pancakes.  We love pancakes, and they are just as good for dinner as they are for breakfast.  After a crazy afternoon of appointments yesterday, I did not know what to make for dinner.  Breakfast for dinner immediately came to mind.  Pancakes are always delicious, and deciding to make strawberry chocolate chip ones was the maybe the best decision that I made all day.  Make these pancakes for breakfast this weekend because they are sure to make your mouth very, very happy.

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes


3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon vinegar

3 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

Strawberries, diced

3/4 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the griddle to 375.
  2. Add the vinegar to the milk and set aside. This will create buttermilk. If you prefer to just use buttermilk, you can do that, too.
  3. Add the butter to a large mixing bowl, and melt it in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  4. Remove it from the microwave, and add the egg and vanilla.
  5. Slowly whisk in the buttermilk.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  7. Add the flour mixture to the buttermilk mixture, and stir to combine.
  8. Gently fold in the strawberries and chocolate chips.
  9. Using a small ladle, add about 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture to the griddle, one scoop at a time. I usually cook about 6 at a time on my griddle. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, until it starts to bubble a little, and then flip. Cook on that side for about 2-3 minutes, and then move from the griddle to a plate.
  10. Continue until all of the mixture has been used. This recipe makes about 10 medium-sized pancakes.

Have a happy weekend!

    i will never buy prepared pancake mix again. I liked that it only makes about 9 small pancakes, alot of the recipes make too much batter for us. The first time i made these i followed the recipe exactly and they were delish. this time i didnt have any milk so i used water instead, it wasnt as good but it worked! Thanks for sharing an amazing recipe. def a keeper

    Wonderful! I made this two nights ago, and the leftovers got eaten yesterday. I added a little minced garlic to the dough. I knew I didn’t have time to do the slow cool rise, so I instead let it rise twice. Today I had time and let it rise in the refrigerator, and wow. Even better! I know it will become a staple in my recipes!
