Gingerbread Pancakes

By Stefanie Kleinburd, HCTP 2013

These pancakes are just as much of a hit with kids as they are with adults. Not only are they delicious and nutritious – made with real ingredients – you can also make them ahead of time and simply reheat! That makes them perfect for a morning that’s better spent opening gifts than at the stove.


  • 3 medium bananas
  • 1 tablespoon molasses, maple syrup, or honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted, plus some for greasing
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Optional: grass-fed butter, honey, cinnamon, chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  3. Grease cookie sheet with coconut oil.
  4. Fill molds with batter. If using cookie cutter, place it on the upper-left part of pan. Evenly spoon two to three tablespoons of batter onto the cookie cutter. Then pick up the cookie cutter gently. Repeat until pan is filled or batter is finished.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, flip, and bake for another 10 minutes.
  6. Cool pancakes for about 10 minutes, then serve with your favorite pancake toppings. Consider grass-fed butter, honey, cinnamon, or chopped walnuts.
