Heat griddle to medium heat, pour 2 T canola oil on griddle to prevent pancakes from sticking. Pour baking mix and cocoa in a bowl and stir with a whisk to remove lumps. Add sugar and stir. Pour in milk and water. Stir with a spoon until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Using an ice cream scoop, drop pancakes on griddle. Watch closely. Pancakes are ready to flip once bubbles form in center of pancake and edges appear dry. Flip pancake and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, watching closely. Remove to platter and keep warm in a 200 degree oven until all pancakes are cooked. Yield: approximately 12 pancakes.
Serve with strawberries, whipped cream, and chocolate syrup.
*Tip ~ freeze any left over pancakes with sheets of waxed paper between each. Microwave or put in toaster oven for a quick home-made breakfast
