Homemade Pancakes with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips

I wanted to send my sister off on her flight back to Ohio with a satisfied tummy, so I offered her the choice between waffles and pancakes. She opted for pancakes, so I looked on my favorite allrecipes.com for an easy pancake recipe. As I've mentioned before, I love ALL forms of pancakes, and I'm always eager to try new recipes and variations (I'm really craving some good buttermilk pancakes. Must buy buttermilk asap!). I made a few changes to the recipe (incorporated whole wheat flour, eliminated the oil, used less sugar, etc), so click the link if you're interested in the original. These turned out to be very good--especially with the addition of the peanut butter/milk chocolate chips. Those were definitely the best part; I can't wait to use the rest of the chips in some cookies!

-2 cups milk
-1/2 cup white sugar
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-1 cup whole-wheat flour
-1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
-approximately 1/2 cup peanut butter/milk chocolate chips

1. Mix the above ingredients together in a large bowl until completely combined.
2. If you prefer thinner pancakes, like me!, add a bit of water to thin the batter.
3. Heat a griddle over medium heat on the stove.
4. Spoon batter onto griddle, flipping when light brown.

**This made about 18 pancakes
