Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pancakes

Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pancakes

I think I have eaten more food this summer than I usually do in a year.

I mean, when I went to Mexico, I had a buffet meal for every meal. This lasted 2 weeks. Now that I'm back, it seems like I'm going to return to that habit.

You see, last night, I went to a buffet with a large group. And what does everyone do at buffets? Makes sure they get their moneys worth of food, right? What does that entail? Well, at least 2 large , heaping plates of food, then of course, at least 2 plates of dessert.

All that food made me so full, I went into a deep food sleep, and woke up 2 hours later than I normally do.

That whole over eating and waking up late ordeal reminded me of Christmas. So, since I was already in the mood, I made some gingerbread pancakes. I was originally thinking of making gingerbread cookies, but I have made lots of cookies recently.

These pancakes were like Christmas in a little circular, fluffy package. I will definitely remember these babies come December.

What you'll need:

-1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
-1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
-1 egg
-2 cups milk
-2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-3 tablespoons butter


    1.   In a medium bowl, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.
    2.   In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Whisk in the egg, milk and vanilla.
    3.   Slowly mix in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until fully incorporated.
    4.   Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, and flip when bubbles are covering the surface of the pancake. Cook the other side until it is golden.
