Kefir Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"I don't always make pancakes, but when I do, I prefer kefir chocolate chip pancakes. I love traditional pancakes, but kefir gives these an extra dimension of fullness. When making these pancakes, I also highly recommend experimenting with various flavored kefirs, such as strawberry or pomegranate. I don't think of pancakes as healthy in general, but this recipe calls for only 2 teaspoons of sugar. If you include chocolate chips, you don't even need to use maple syrup. Enjoy some orange juice or a coffee with these."

  1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Add kefir and eggs; stir until batter is moist but still lumpy. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until golden on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

I skipped the chocolate chips but made this otherwise exactly according to the recipe. My picky toddler inhaled three for breakfast. This is going into the regular rotation!

I think buttermilk produces a better pancake... these were sour. Chocolate chips probably cover up the sourness, but I left them out in the interest of health.

Absolutely delicious. I added more sugar and substituted chocolate chips for blueberries. Frying in peanut oil made them nice and crunchy!

I also added vanilla, and substituted kefir for 2 cups plain Greek yogurt and 1.5 cups water. Even without the chocolate chips they were great.

These came out great. Made exactly as directed plus added 1/2 tsp vanilla. Used honey kefir.

Amazing fluffy pancakes. My daughter can't have traditional dairy, but my homemade kefir seems to be okay. This is a great buttermilk pancake alternative that doesn't contain additional milk or...
