Dark Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcakes

I'm still trying to revamp recipes to make them a little healthier than my norm.  Healthier this time was adding flax seed and cutting down on the sugar.   One of my twins was more than happy to help this morning when I told him we were making this for breakfast.  He sliced the strawberries, added the vanilla and little bit of sugar.
