Christmas and winter is for me strongly associated with long cozy breakfasts and brunches with lots of delicious food. And pancakes are of course a given part of a winter breakfast or brunch! Pancakes are so great to make since you can vary them endlessly with different seasonings and add ins, but are very easy to make and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a good stack of pancakes. These pancakes are one of my all time favorites! Just because I love love love the taste of gingerbread. These gingerbread pancakes feel both Christmasy and wintery, with a warming and cozy taste due to all the spices. They are made with oat flour, eggs, yogurt and milk/water, so they are both delicious and healthy at the same time. You can serve these pancakes with lingonberries (as I did here), with you favorite jam, whipped cream, Greek yogurt, syrup or why not ice cream. They are perfect to make for both breakfast, brunch, lunch or afternoon snack. And they are both gluten and refined sugar free, and can easily be made dairy free.
A few tips:
- I love using a high speed blender when making my pancake batter, since you only need to add all ingredients and then mix for 30 seconds.
- I use two frying pans when making my pancakes to reduce the frying time.
- I prefer to keep the fried pancakes in a warm oven to prevent them from getting cold.
- The amount of gingerbread spice can be adjusted according to how strong gingerbread taste you prefer.
- I used molasses in my pancakes, but that is optional.
- If you prefer you pancakes sweeter then you can add some sugar to the batter.
