Paleo Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Lake Superior Kitchen, Paleo Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Spring is in the air, which means healthy habits are coming more naturally to me.  I no longer feel the constant urge to eat candy under a blanket and watch Netflix for hours on end.  I have so much more motivation to exercise and eat well.  The longer days make a huge difference.  It’s amazing how much more energy I have to make dinner when it’s light outside.

This pancake recipe came about on an unexpected day off.  Baby E was very sick so I got to stay home with her.  Like any parent, I enjoy the snuggly part of sick days.  We sat together on the couch for an extra long time with no agenda.  She napped quite a bit so I enjoyed the beauty of silence.  This is very rare for me these days as the twins must be in the prime inquisitive stage.  I am usually being asked 3-4 questions at once, with voices getting louder with every repeat of what they are trying to say.  Needless to say, I really enjoyed my quiet time that day.  I wanted something delicious to eat and chocolate chip pancakes happened.  They are so delicious, it’s wonderful.  You can buy paleo chocolate chips if you would like.  I try to find chocolate chips with simple ingredients and, ideally, no soy lecithin.
