  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...
