Gingerbread Buckwheat Pancakes

Who said healthy and decadent couldn't land in the form of a pancake? Introducing my deliciously vegan and gluten free Gingerbread Buckwheat Pancakes!

Good morning my fine feathered friends! I am writing to you on the eve of the first weekend of December. I hope you all survived your week and have some scheduled time for rest this weekend.

Decembers are BUSY to say the least but please do make time for you. Perhaps that comes in the form of yoga, a run/walk or maybe you enjoy cooking? Pancakes can be very meditative to make so maybe this will be your weekend stack?

This recipe can feed 3-4 or 2 VERY hungry people. I use a 1/4c ice cream scoop to measure out the batter for perfectly sized pancakes. The buckwheat in the batter makes these cakes denser and therefore more stick to your ribs. They also don’t have very much sugar, 1 DATE SYRUP only to help brown and crisp them up.

I have made several variations of these pancakes so how will you know which ones you will like best? My guess is you have to try them all! Just kidding, start with these ones as they are fluffy, and perfectly sweet and spiced. I added gingerbread spice as it’s the holidays after all!

Give them a go and as always, tag me if you make them!
