Vegan and Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes

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.

Recipe Notes

*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.

**I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix.

***I used Earth Balance Vegan Butter Sticks.

      Hi, Courtney! Merry Christmas to you, too! I’ve tried them with almond milk before and they still turned out delicious. The extra protein in the soy milk just helps create a more true vegan “buttermilk” which helps the fluffy factor.
