Gently fold the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients (it’s fine if there are lumps). More gently fold the egg whites in until just combined. Let the batter rest for 5 mins. Preheat a non-stick skillet and brush lightly with butter (wipe off the excess butter with a tissue)

Ladle a full 1/3 cup of the batter and cook for 3 mins or just until golden, add the Chocolate chips. You know it’s time to flip, when bubbles form. Cook the other side for 1-2 mins.
