My Daughter's Favorite Pancakes - Chunky Monkey Patties
I'm guessing there are many recipes out there called Chunky Monkey Pancakes but this recipe comes from my daughter's 8th grade teachers "eBoard" where she posts homework, projects, AND recipes.
I'm not sure where her teacher found this recipe for "Chunky Monkey Patties" but it is definitely one of my youngest daughter's favorites.
The recipe is used in the school's Family and Consumer Science class. I think this may be the modern name for what we called Home Economics when I was in school. I think it's great the schools are getting young boys and girls interested in cooking in middle school.
