  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • cup dark chocolate chips
  • cup white chocolate chips
  • cup milk chocolate chips


  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour with sugar, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest and salt.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk buttermilk with canola oil, eggs and vanilla.
  • Scrape buttermilk mixture into flour mixture and whisk to combine (the batter will still be lumpy). Sitr in chocolate chips.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Spray with oil. Pour ⅓ cup batter into pan. If the pan is big enough, you can cook multiple pancakes at once. Cook until bubbles form on top of each pancake and edges begin to brown about 2 to 4 min. Flip and cook another 2 to 3 min. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup.
