Vegan Gingerbread Pancakes

 The best way to start the day with a big warm stack of festive gingerbread pancakes!

If you're looking for a delicious Christmas morning breakfast, I think you may have found it. I've never started my Christmas morning with pancakes either, but I am absolutely going to be having them this year. I know we all have our Christmas morning traditions, some of you may have a full English, some a mince pie and champagne, some have pastries - as for me, for a long time we used to have sausage sandwiches, which technically I can still do with vegan sausages, but this I'm feeling the pancakes, especially these gingerbread ones! The mini gingerbread men are optional, but highly recommended because biscuits AND pancakes is a dreamy breakfast.

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Serves: Makes 7 pancakes

NOTE: every ingredient I use is vegan so make sure you check your ingredients if you're following a Vegan lifestyle.

125g Plain flour
1 ½ tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Ginger
¼ tsp Nutmeg
170ml Soya milk + 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp Black treacle


✿Place all ingredients (except the mini gingerbread men) into a blender and blend till combined. Or whisk together a lot until smooth.
Leave to sit about 5 minutes, then heat a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and drizzle a little oil on. 
Once warm, spoon about 2 tbsp of the pancake batter into the pan to make 1 circle. Repeat with another circle so you have 2 pancakes in the pan - if your pan is bigger add another 2 tbsp to make another one. 
Leave to cook for about 1-2 minutes and there are lots of bubbles on the surface. If you can slide the pancakes around the pan you can flip them over to cook on the other side another 2 minutes.
Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve with more treacle or maple syrup and the gingerbread men for a nice crunch and more ginger! Best served fresh. Enjoy!
