whole grain gingerbread pancakes

Oh hey! I’m still eating breakfast over here, what about you?

I know lately the blog has been a little, er, breakfast heavy but bear with me! I love it so.

And these pancakes are special. I mean really special. Why? Because they taste just like my very favorite dessert—old fashioned gingerbread!

Made with whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt and an array of fall-ish spice, these pancakes make the perfect hearty weekend breakfast.

Or weekday lunch. <—me yesterday.

Make ’em this weekend! You won’t regret it. I’ll be dreaming of these puppies while I’m pitchin’ a tent and surviving off of trail mix all weekend. So….eat some for me, okay??

Head to PBS Food for the recipe! And have a fabulous Friday, my sweet friends!

    Darn…this is just poor timing. If you had posted this earlier I would have made this exact breakfast for myself this morning! Alas, I searched for other pancake recipes to use up some quickly expiring greek yogurt, one of which did not turn out as planned. I will keep this recipe in my back pocket for next time! 😉

    Wow, these look great! I was just thinking how I need to make pancakes this weekend. I might try to veganize these (almond milk, flax egg, earth balance) and also sub out the greek yogurt for pumpkin to fuel my current pumpkin obsession…pumpkin gingerbread sounds awesome, right?! 🙂

    How do you decide each day/night what to make for your blog? Do you go by what you would like to eat or what might appeal to others?

    I guess I am asking basically – what inspires you!? Cookbooks, blogs, etc.

    Made these this morning for breakfast, and they were delicious! I subbed in light sour cream because I was out of plain Greek yogurt. Not as nutritious, but it worked. I got 10 pancakes out of one recipe, so I’d say it makes more like 4-5 servings. Definitely a keeper!

    I made these this morning (and my mom told me that she did, too)! My whole family loved them; real keeper. The only modification I made was to lower the butter to 1T; they still came out fantastically. To the last half of the batch, I added chopped up cranberries (from the freezer). YUM! (My mom makes a cranberry upside-down gingerbread cake, which is what made me think of it.) This is definitely a keeper recipe that I expect will appear at our house over many, many weekends. Oh, and I got 13 pancakes (and my mom got 16), so I’d say this feeds +/- 4 people.

    I love gingerbread so much but my hubby isn’t into it. His main problem is the molasses, so I’m hoping he likes these. Breakfast for dinner!!
