Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Pancakes

I am going to try to post one specifically gluten free recipe each week, but for all of you gluten-avores still enjoying the pleasures of all purpose wheat flour, I will add an option for you.  It’s a lot easier to convert back to gluten than to go the other way, let me tell you!Chocolate Chunk Pancakes
There was a bar of Scharffen Berger dark chocolate in the swag bag I received at the Food Blog Forum.  My family, gastronomical cretins that they can sometimes be, was not offered any.  I chose to break it into fourths and spread it out over four lovely breakfasts for gluten free me.  I had some leftover Valentine’s chocolates for any passersby that mentioned that I was eating chocolate and they weren’t.

My husband keeps looking at my pancake photos and telling me that I need a circular ring so my pancakes come out in perfect circles.  I haven’t been able to convince him that it isn’t the pouring that is the problem.  It’s the flipping of the dang pancakes.  I cannot tell you how many times I have elongated my cute circles when turning them over.  You folks understand, right?  We are going for taste here, not geometry.

I enjoyed eating these as I took the pictures.  Usually when I bake, I have to fake the bites or enlist a volunteer from the ranks of onlookers.  There are some definite advantages to my posting gluten free recipes once a week! The only child in me gloats over having something all to myself.  I try to keep that only child person at bay, but sometimes she asserts herself and I lose control.
