These were great, my whole family cleaned their plates. Served with homemade tart cherry syrup, they are elevated to nothing short of incredible. It's nice that you put the chocolate chips on top of each pancake as they are cooking so you can substitute fruit (or nothing) if you prefer. I let the batch sit for about 15-20 min before cooking, and it got really fluffy and made more than my family of 5 could eat. I can't wait to serve the leftovers to the kids for breakfast tomorrow. This recipe is definitely a keeper, thanks! ETA: After reading other reviews I wanted to add that I subbed extra light olive oil for the veg. oil and white whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the flour and you could not at all tell that they were "whole grain" or healthier, they still came out super fluffy, not dense at all (perhaps the waiting period helped with this). Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and did not find them to be too salty. You CAN sprinkle the chips right on, as long as your pan is not hot enough to burn the pancakes, it won't burn the chocolate either. They were sweet enough not to need syrup at all, which is the way we ate most of them. I wouldn't use maple though. The cherry syrup was great (given that chocolate and cherry are a nice combo anyway), but if I didn't have that on hand and felt like I really needed syrup, I might try agave nectar or a simple vanilla syrup. They truly don't need any syrup though.
