  1. Preheat a griddle over medium low heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Roughly chop the chocolate bars and fold them into the batter.
  4. Lightly grease your griddle with nonstick cooking spray or coconut oil. Ladle 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle and repeat until you have filled your pan. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles begin to form, about 2 - 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 1 - 2 minutes longer until the other sides are golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and repeat until no batter remains.
  5. Serve pancakes warm with pure maple syrup and additional chocolate shavings (if desired).
