What’s better than chocolate chip pancakes? Chocolate chip pancakes you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. I lightened up these pancakes by using Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour and added flax seed. These pancakes are guilt-free, super fluffy, thick and loaded with chocolate chips.

These pancakes are 100% whole wheat. If you prefer you can always to a mix of whole wheat and all purpose flour. I also added some flax seed for extra fiber and protein. Baking powder was added to give the pancakes a little lift.

How to make Healthy Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancakes

  • Combine dry ingredients: Whisk whole wheat flour, flax seed, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine wet ingredients: In a medium bowl whisk together egg, Greek yogurt, milk, and vanilla.
  • Make pancake batter: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and fold gently. Do not over mix.
  • Cook: Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter or cooking spray. Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet or griddle. Add chocolate chips to each pancake before flipping, about 1/2 tablespoon each. Cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Coat griddle or skillet with more butter in between each batch to prevent sticking.
  • Serve: Immediately with syrup or honey if desired. Keep pancakes warm in a 200 degree oven until you are ready to serve.
