Gingerbread in a pancake?  Oh yes, it can be done, and its delicious!  One of my favorite flavors of the holidays in gingerbread. So in these, I use the same spices, plus a touch of molasses, and voila, we have gingerbread!

Not only are these gingerbread pancakes – gluten free, they are almost soft-cookie like. I like to drown mine in sugar free maple syrup (my favorite is Nature’s Hollow Sugar Free Maple Syrup made with xylitol), and it really makes them melt-in-your-mouth.
