Gingerbread Pancakes & A Giveaway!



Today's entry is my 100th post!
To celebrate, I am giving away a pretty little peter pan collar necklace!
But first, the recipe for those scrumptious pancakes above :9

Healthy Gingerbread Pancakes  (source)

Ingredients (makes about 3 pancakes)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1/2 cup low fat buttermilk, well-shaken
  • powdered cane sugar, optional
  • maple syrup, optional
Instructions
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the first 7 ingredients (flour through cloves).
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg white, molasses, and buttermilk.
  • Stir dry ingredients into the wet just until moistened. Set aside to rest.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Coat with cooking spray or a bit of oil/butter.
  • When hot, spoon the batter into the skillet by the 1/4 cupful.
  • When bubbles appear on the surface of the batter, (about 1-2 minutes), the pancakes are ready to be flipped.
  • Flip pancakes and let cook for another minute or so, or until golden brown.
  • Serve with powdered cane sugar and/ore maple syrup if desired.


And now for the giveaway!
