Can you put butter and chocolate chips in the mixture?
Yes, you can add both into the mixture. In some recipes, butter is added into the pancake mixture as an oil alternative.

Can you put butter and chocolate chips in the mixture for the pancakes?
You can put butter as it will give extra flavor into it. On the other hand, It is possible for you to add chocolate chips into the mixture. However, I won't recommend it because it will melt right away as soon as it touches the bottom of the pan.Helpful 12
