I came across this recipe while trying to find a healthy alternative to the frozen chocolate chip waffles my kids eat everyday. I am thrilled to say that my kids love these! As others suggested, I used applesauce in lieu of oil and omitted the sugar. I used old fashioned oats because that was all I had on hand. I ground 1/4 c in blender and left the other 1/4 cup whole. Rather than add the chocolate chips to the batter, I put 6 chocolate chips in each pancake after the bottom crust had formed. To serve, I sprinkled the pancakes with powdered sugar. My only complaint is that the recipe as written only made 6 pancakes (using a 1/4 cup scoop).
