- You’ll definitely want to drizzle date syrup on top of these. I know – usually I’m #teammaplesyrup, but for these, you’ll want to get date syrup. It’s the perfect ooey gooey sweetener with a molassy taste.
What can I do if my pancakes are raw inside?
If your pancakes are golden brown on the outside but not cooked all the way through, reduce the heat! That way they have more time to cook properly.
What can I do if my pancakes aren’t fluffy?
Add more baking powder! This will make them fluffier. Mashed bananas + baking powder = are a good recipe for fluffiness! :)
My pancake batter is spreading too much?!
My pancake batter isn’t spreading enough?!
No worries, you can easily adjust the batter! If the batter is spreading too much in the pan, whisk more flour into the batter. If your pancake batter isn’t spreading enough, add a bit more plant-based milk!
Can I make these pancakes without oil?
Yes, the pancakes use very little oil to begin with, so you can easily omit it but they will look different on the outside because I’ve been spraying/brushing the pan with oil.
See how fluffy these vegan Gingerbread pancakes are?! The trick is…. baking powder! ;)
These vegan Gingerbread Pancakes are drizzled with date syrup. They only need 9 ingredients and are the perfect breakfast to get into the Christmas spirit!
Add the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg powder in a mixing bowl, give it a quick whisk. Add the plant-based milk and date syrup. Whisk until incorporated. Let it sit for a few minutes.
Spray a flat pan or griddle with oil and heat it up to low heat. Add a small ladle of pancake batter. Let it cook until the middle becomes bubbly and the corners set, then flip with a spatula. Let it cook on the other side until done. Repeat for all the pancakes.
Now, let's stack the pancakes and drizzle with more date syrup! Enjoy!
*If you use unsweetened milk, you might want to add a bit more date syrup.
**Instead of date syrup, you could also use maple syrup. But I find that the molassy taste of the date syrup is perfect for these gingerbread pancakes!
