With Christmas slowly but surely rolling in, it was obvious I was going to create a festive pancake stack! While I have many Christmas-y pancake ideas, this has got to be one of my favourites! So today, I bring you Gingerbread Pancakes.
What I needed for this recipe:
- Non-stick frying pan
- Optional: single egg frying pan
- Stirring spoon
- Small ladle
Gingerbread pancakes are here but more festive treats are coming!
I hope everyone is ready (or already) in the festive spirit and is prepared to kick it up a notch with these Gingerbread Pancakes. The famous festive flavour burst in, out and around the entire stack, so you will not be disappointed! I cannot wait to share my other renditions Christmas themed food! (trust me, it’s going to be good).Print
A festive rendition of my favourite pancakes!
40g of oats
4 tbsp of fat free natural/Greek yoghurt
½ a tsp of vanilla extract
½ a tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of ground ginger
1 tbsp of granulated sweetener. I use Canderel.
2/8 Mcvities mini gingerbread men(1.5 syns)
12.5g of light squirty cream. I use Anchor. (1 Syn for Slimming World)
Honey (1 Syn for Slimming World)
Blitz your oats in a blender or food processor until it resembles powder. I use a this Nutribullet.
Separate out your egg yolks and whisk the whites until they form stiff peaks for super fluffiness! Or you can add the eggs as they are. Some days I separate, some days I don’t. Both options are fine and will make that desired American stack .
Mix in 1/2 a tsp of the ginger and the remaining ingredients (bar the gingerbread men and cream). Make sure all the oats are scraped from the edges of the bowl.
Heat your pan to a medium heat and spray with a low calorie cooking spray. I personally use the dieters’ favourite, Frylight.
Dollop on about a tablespoon of the mixture until it forms a a small, round-sized patty shape. Alternatively, you can use a single egg pan to create that perfect circle!
Leave for a minute or two and when the edges start to look like they are setting, flip that pancake over. Some small bubbles may appear on top which is also a sign that they’re about ready.
The other side may splat where it’s still raw. Use your spatula to scoop it back in and refine the patty and leave for another minute or two. (Handy trick: using a single egg-sized pan means this is less likely to happen). Leave for another minute or two.
Flip over again (the pancake, not you) and check both sides are golden in colour. Press down to check the inside is done too. If anything oozes out, leave it for a tad longer. By all means, have a gooey pancake if you want. I won’t judge… But I would not recommend.
Slide that fluffy angel from the pan and onto a plate. Spray the pan with some more Frylight and repeat steps 5-8 until all the batter is used up.
Once stacked, top with the gingerbread men, cream, honey and remaining ground ginger.
WARNING: Cream may come with the extreme urge to squirt some directly into your mouth.
Finally, take your pictures for Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and everywhere that you can to show your friends the festive pancake connoisseur you are.
