  1. Make syrup: In a blender, blend together thawed strawberries with pure maple syrup until smooth. Pour into small pitcher for serving and set aside.
  2. Make pancakes: In a 4-cup glass measuring cup or a medium bowl, whisk together soy milk, maple syrup, vinegar and vanilla. Set aside to allow milk to curdle (like buttermilk).
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, ground flax seeds, cinnamon and salt. Gently whisk wet ingredients into dry just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Preheat non-stick skillet to medium heat. If using an electric griddle, set to 350 degrees F. Pour pancakes using disher (spring loaded ice cream scoop) or 1/3 cup measuring cup and cook for 3-4 minutes on the first side and about 2-3 minutes on the second side, or until golden.
  5. Serve pancakes immediately with fresh strawberries and Strawberry Syrup.
