These are so versatile, as you can change up the flavor however you would like, such as: 

Chocolate chips (+ 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips) 

Apple Cinnamon (Cook sliced apples with cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup until soft) 

Double Chocolate (+ 1/4 cup cocoa powder & 1/2 cup chocolate chips) 

Chai Spiced (replace 1/2 of almond milk with brewed chai tea & add cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger)

  2. Pour wet ingredients into dry, and stir until smooth. This is the time to stir in your optional add ins (nuts, chocolate chips, etc.). 
  3. Preheat a large skillet over medium-low and grease. Pour in 1/4 cup batter and cook on on side until edges become matte and bubbles form. Cook on other side for 30-45 sec.
