Gingerbread Pancakes

Here's the Dish

On the Third Day of Christmas my True Love Gave to Me… Soft and Fluffy with a Hint of Spice… Gingerbread Pancakes!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 10-15 Minutes.


Put all of the ingredients together in a blender and mix until oats are smooth. (I use an immersion blender; but if you use a regular blender, be sure to put the wet ingredients in first).


Pour approximately 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto heated griddle or non-stick pan (check to see if it’s hot enough with a splash of water-if it sizzles, it’s hot enough).


When pancakes bubble, flip and cook the other side is golden brown. Top with topping of choice and serve warm!


1 cup Low-fat buttermilk
1 cup Oats (use gluten free oats if sensitive to gluten)
2 Egg whites
2 tbsLow fat milk (or milk substitute)
2-3 pkts Stevia (or 1/2 tbs sweetener of choice, or to taste)
3/4 tsp Ground ginger (dry spice)
1/2 tspCinnamon
1/4 tsp Pumpkin pie spice (or nutmeg)
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tspBaking powder
