Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes & Mix

I’m loving this month’s Recipe ReDux theme, “Adding Merriment to Mixes”, because, truly, some of the best holiday gifts, are those that come from the heart…and from the kitchen.

From hostess gifts to holiday gifts, it’s the season for DIY offerings from your kitchen…

This gluten free pancake mix was inspired by a drizzly morning, that called for a steaming hot cup of coffee. Unfortunately, we were fresh out of coffee, so I walked 1 mile in the pouring rain drizzle, just to buy Mr. Spicy and myself a cup of coffee.

And, once I made it back home, warm and cozy, I was suddenly craving something yummy to eat. Enter this gluten free pancake mix & gingerbread pancakes. So scrumptious topped off with with pure maple syrup and lightly toasted pecans.

Oh, my goodness….yum!

Tips for Making Gluten Free Pancake Mix & Gingerbread Pancakes

  • These gingerbread pancakes are gluten-free, vegetarian, and suitable for a low FODMAP diet {use lactose-free or non-dairy milk, and use additional maple syrup to sweeten, in place of the molasses}.
  • Make them vegan by using dairy-free milk, and a vegan egg replacer.

What makes these pancakes healthy-ish?

  • Not only does buckwheat flour add a delicious nutty taste to these gingerbread pancakes, but it also provides fiber, manganese, magnesium, and flavonoids to promote good health, including lowering of cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar.
  • The spices in these gingerbread pancakes are anti-inflammatory, plus they just taste delicious!

They are quite simply the perfect homemade gift for anyone on your holiday list this season!

Even better yet, make one jar for yourself, and one jar for a friend!

Talk about a delicious gift to get, AND to give!

  1. These are fantastic! We’re making homemade gifts this year and these pancakes will be one of our picks for sure. I have a quick question – I can’t tell from the pictures if you used a pint or quart jar? From looking at the dry ingredients it looks to be a little over two cups, so I’m thinking a pint jar might do it? Thanks.

    1. Hi Kristine! Thanks so much for your kind comment! I did use a quart jar, and although there was a little space left at the top, I don’t think a pint jar would be big enough to hold all the mix, but you could try 🙂 I hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I do!

  2. I love your photos! They make the recipes look even better than they appear at first sight 😉 I have to try those pancakes at home!

  3. I’d be sorry happy to receive this as a gift – I’d be cooking them within a few minutes to share around! Love the recipe 🙂

  4. What an outrageously gorgeous recipe! They look so deep in colour yet so light in texture! Your pics are beautiful. These will play on my mind until I have some. Xx

  5. You had me at ‘gingerbread’. I love the stuff, particularly the cakey version and these pancakes look like a great way to expand my gingerbread repertoire. And it’s great that they’re gluten-free too, I will have to pass this on to a friend of mine with coeliac disease.

  6. Super yummy flavours to spice up a drizzly morning (surely not in SoCal!). Just wondering about the milk to mix ratio: is it really one cup milk with the whole jar?

  7. I’m a gingerbread and pancake lover so this is right up my alley and I’m contemplating now doing a whole variety of pancakes mixes for the long list gifts I need for my daughter’s teachers, activity leaders, therapists, etc etc!

  8. I want I want!! I saw these posted on FB this morning and literally started to drool. These are definitely pin-worthy!

    1. LOL! Too bad you don’t live closer Jessica because I would invite you over for some. Much less dangerous out than jumping through the computer screen 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Regan! Love this months ReDux theme, and all the other posts have me super inspired to make everyone on my list something homemade this year 🙂

  9. these look crazy amazing. you’ve combined two of my absolute favorites… gingerbread & pancakes. well, and the coffee of course too! if i was your friend and you gave me this… i might have done a herky.

    1. I will gladly trade you some Gingerbread Pancake Mix, for a batch of your Coconut Birthday Cake Scrub Gretchen!!!!

  10. These look so good! Great idea and love the photos, just beautiful.

  11. Yes I would walk that far for steamy coffee on a drizzly day. If there were someplace that close with good coffee! Thge closest place to my country abode is a convenience store with blaaaach coffee. (So l keep Starbucks Via on hand for emergency!) BTW these look gorgeous…. Can almost smell them too!

    1. Thanks Serena, and, yes, Via is usually in my emergency supply too but I was even out of that the other day. I did find a Folgers coffee dunk bag, but talk about super blaaaaach coffee! 🙂
