"I made these in my dorm on Friday mornings to kick off the weekend- most of them were eaten straight out of the pan by the line of friends drawn by the scent of melting chocolate! Serve with maple syrup or sliced strawberries."

  1. Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set bowl aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the skim milk, melted margarine, eggs, and sugar. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix the batter. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until golden brown on the other side.

I never thought of there being healthy yet tasty pancakes. I give 5 stars for it.

I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because the baking powder was a bit much, but my husband can't taste it and he liked it. The only other change I'd make is to add a tsp of vanilla.

I thought these were pretty good. I changed the servings to 6 with the calculate button and got 5 pancakes. I wanted to try this recipe, to test some white whole wheat flour I bought. I didn't h...

My hubby and I both thought these were very good, and liked that they are a bit healthier than other pancake recipes. I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 of a cup all-purpose flour. I also ...

I was excited to try this recipe since I'm always on the lookout for healthier alternatives and I can say this with confidence that my expectations were met to the fullest. They were light and f...
