In a small bowl, whisk together flour, oats, wheat germ, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. In a medium bowl, mix the egg, milk, and oil. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients to form a batter. Add the water gradually (as needed). Don't overwork the batter. Stir in the dark chocolate chips.
