If you don't want to spend time at the stove 
flipping pancakes you can bake these little 
babies in the oven for 8 minutes. 
Kids would love these!
Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins......
 That's a, PUFFINS for short.
 I found this recipe on Bakerella
Her recipes have never 'stirred' me wrong.
First I mixed up my own fake buttermilk,
2/3 C milk with 1 t lemon juice. 
Let that sit while you whisk
the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. 
Now add the egg, melted butter and maple syrup
 to the milk and whisk to combine.
 Combine the wet and dry ingredients just 
until mixed in. Do not over-beat. 
Stir in the chocolate chips.
 Fill a well sprayed mini muffin pan.
 It will make 24.
 Bake at 350 for 8 minutes, until puffed.
 The sides will pull away slightly when done.
Let cool a few minutes, then remove.
 Serve warm. Brush tops with a little butter. 
Then dip into warmed maple syrup.
 They taste just like pancakes.
Light and fluffy.
