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

I was looking for a pancake with oatmeal and tried these without the spices. I usually make the banana + egg recipe. However these did not disappoint. You would never know they have oatmeal in them much less the buttermilk. I ground my oats in the blender first then added remaining ingredients and blended. I think if you wanted a pancake with more texture you could blend only the oats and then stir the dry ingredients in. They are so light and cook quickly. Always looking for healthy recipes for hubby who is a diabetic and myself with cholesterol issues Thanks!!
