Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Growing up, I used to watch Disney's "Mickey and the Beanstalk" cartoon with my brother.  There's a song in the movie where Donald, Goofy, and Mickey sing, "Pancakes piled up 'til they reach the sky. I'm going to eat and eat and eat and eat and eat until I die."  Oh how we used to bellow that song at the top of our lungs.  But ya know, that is pretty much my motto with pancakes.  The more there are, the merrier I am.  I love pancakes.  I love whole wheats, buttermilks, flavored.  Any way you hand them to me, I'll  eat 'em.  They are one of my all time favorite foods evah!  I love to surprise my family with all sorts of new pancakes.  These new pancakes were DELISH!  I kept eating them all throughout the day.  These pair fabulously with maple syrup or just eat them plain.  Either way, they are a delicious way to start the day.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
3/4 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.  Then add the wet ingredients and mix until the batter is moistened.  Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat.  Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Spoon batter (1/4 cup per pancake) onto the hot griddle.  When the pancake starts bubbling on one side and is lightly browned, flip to the other side.  Brown on other side.  Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
