Easter Chocolate Chip Pancakes for Kids Recipe

What better way to let the little ones welcome Easter than with a cool, kid friendly breakfast?  Our favorite is Chocolate Chip Easter Shaped Pancakes.  The kids can help cut them out from fun, Easter themed cookie cutters--and they taste great.  We'll be using our Easter Chocolate Chip Pancakes for Kids for our Blogging from A to Z Challenge.  E is for Easter Themed Pancakes!

Ingredients for Easter themed Chocolate Chip Pancakes for Kids
2 c. All Purpose Flour
2 Tbsp. Sugar
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp.  Salt
2 c. Milk
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 c. Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

Instructions for Easter themed Chocolate Chip Pancakes for Kids

Mix pancake ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Combine dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with a fork.  Add milk, and eggs and stir until just combined.  Try not to over mix the batter or the pancakes may turn a little tough.You may either gently fold in the chocolate chips or wait until frying the pancakes and sprinkle some onto the batter as soon as it hits the pan or griddle.

Prepare the pan or griddle for frying.  Preheat a frying pan or griddle.  I wipe a nonstick griddle with an olive oil soaked paper towel.

Fry the pancakes.  For this recipe, since we used cookie cutters to create fun Easter and Spring shapes I dropped enough pancake batter on my pan to yield a 4-6 inch pancake.  Fry on the first side until bubbles appear throughout the batter.  Flip and fry on the other until golden brown.

Cut out the Easter or Spring pancake shapes.  With regular metal cookie cutters, we cut out rabbits and flowers and chicks.  We found that metal cutters worked much better (and faster) on the warm pankcakes.

We serve our chocolate chip pancakes warm with syrup, butter, and whipped topping.
