01In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt, then stir until all ingredients are blended. Push the dry ingredients to one side of the bowl, then add the chocolate milk, Greek yogurt, egg, and melted butter. Mix until smooth.
02Spray a griddle with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Use a 1/3-cup measuring cup to scoop the batter, then pour it onto the griddle. Sprinkle an even amount of mini chocolate chips over each pancake, then use the back of a spoon to bury the chips in the batter.
03Cook until bubbles form over the surface of the pancake, then flip. Continue to cook until golden brown. Serve plain or with your favorite syrup.
04For a higher protein content, use a higher-protein chocolate milk, like Fairlife brand.
