Chocolate Chip Pecan Pancakes

These are very tasty & filling! I love the pecan pieces in the pancakes, great for a cold morning.
I changed this recipe by using maple syrup and using slightly different ingredient amounts than the web recipe called for. I added the nuts and chocolate chips to the batter and they were spectacular.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for griddle if needed
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
confectioner’s sugar for garnish

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, and then stir in the milk and vanilla. Stir in the melted butter. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring just until the batter is thick. Avoid over-mixing. Mix in the pecans, then the chocolate chips.
Preheat a griddle and brush it with melted butter. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the surface of the griddle for each pancake. When bubbles come to the surface, flip the pancakes and cook for approximately 1 minute more. Remove to serving plates, dust lightly with confectioner’s sugar, and drizzle with warm syrup.
