When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of thyme and rosemary. And when I think of the holidays, all I can think about is GINGERBREAD.

And so I start thinking about what plain jane dish could be gingerfied. And then it hit me. PANCAKES.

It’s pretty rare that I make pancakes on the weekend because (a) I’m feeling lazy or (b) I’m hungry and don’t feel like waiting longer to eat breakfast. It’s usually eggs or egg sandwiches for Steve and I. So pancakes are definitely a special treat for us. And the gingerbread twist quadrupled its specialness. healthy gingerbread pancakes, perfect for holiday brunch!This recipe would make for a delicious and festive addition to your holiday brunch menu or if you’re like me, a delicious addition to your weekend breakfast lineup :).healthy gingerbread pancakes made with whole-wheat flour!
