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.
You’ll love it (and the kids will too!). Plus, who wouldn’t want to get in the holiday spirit with these pancakes? I know I do!
