I am obsessed with these pancakes. They are so aromatic, delicious, and absolutely perfect for the holidays or a special weekend brunch. Better yet, make a batch ahead of time and store it in the fridge or freezer. Heat it up on a weekday morning for a truly special breakfast before your day starts. I love topping mine with a bit of vegan butter, fresh raspberries, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Gingerbread Pancakes (Vegan, Gluten Free):
- 1 cup unsweetened soy milk*
- 1/2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 flax eggs
- 1.5 cups gluten free pancake mix**
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
- 2 Tablespoons molasses
- 2 Tablespoons vegan butter*** melted
- Combine the soy milk and apple cider vinegar and stir. Set aside and allow to rest for 5 minutes to curdle and create vegan buttermilk.
- Combine 2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed with 5 Tablespoons water and stir. Set aside and allow to rest for 5 minutes to create flax eggs. It will be a gel-like consistency when it’s ready.
- In a large bowl, whisk together pancake mix, ground cloves, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and dark brown sugar.
- Add in the curdled soy milk, flax eggs, melted vegan butter, and molasses. Stir to combine.
- Grease and heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the batter to the hot greased skillet 1/4 cup at a time.
- Cook until little bubbles appear around the edge of the pancake and one or two bubbles appear in the middle of the pancake.
- Flip and cook for roughly two more minutes, or until cooked all the way through.
- Serve immediately with your favorite toppings.
*It’s best to use soy milk instead of another plant milk in this recipe. It has a higher protein content and that’s what reacts with the apple cider vinegar to curdle and create the vegan buttermilk.
