Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes

We are a little crazy with pancakes around here. I am always trying to think of ways we can jazz them up a little. With St. Patrick’s Day being this month there is a lot of green going on around the internet and the food world. I immediately knew I wanted to do something to join in. Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes

So when the kids had Friday off of school last week I decided it would be a good morning for us do to some pancakes. We definitely knew we wanted to try something new. Then the wheels started turning. My daughter and I had just been discussing last week ice cream flavors. I know her favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip.

So then the wheels started moving faster and I said what about Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes. The kids were instantly sold!

It worked out great for this morning to make them. I had all of the ingredients right in my cabinets (surprise, surprise) so I was able to pull them out and whip these up in no time at all. The kids had a great time watching as we cooked the pancakes. It was fun to see if we were really going to have a green pancake or not.

I was so happy with how these came out. They tasted great and the color was fun to look at. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to achieve the green minty pancake when I finished them up.

Hope you will find sometime to make your own Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes and add a little green into your day!
