Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Cinnamon Butter

I really really need a new camera. My little point and shoot is just not doing it anymore. The flash is not working correctly anymore and I need better pictures of my food. Sorry for the crappy shots today.

These pancakes were more like dessert than breakfast. They were SO GOOD. Next time I will use less chocolate chips though. Still insanely good.

I topped them with Cinnamon Butter (recipe below) and Maple Syrup.

Cinnamon Butter:

That's it. This butter is also really good to keep on hand in the refrigerator for toast, on top of oatmeal, etc. whatever you what.  Thanks for checking in! Have a good Monday.
