2 cups of Bisquick
1/2 cup applesauce
enough milk to make a medium-thick batter (about 3/4 cup)
3 chocolate chips per small pancake
Mix it all together. Nonstick griddle over medium heat. I drop the chocolate chips on after I put the batter on the skillet.
And while they're eating, they tell me what the pancakes look like: "This one looks like a grasshopper's face!" "This one looks like space!" "This one looks like you, Mommy!" Mm-hmm. Very rewarding.
