I’ve created these pancakes to taste just like a gingerbread house but with a soft, fluffy and moreish taste - topped with ‘Cherry Vanilla Jim Jam’ and you’ve most likely gone to heaven. 


- 1 Cup Wholemeal Spelt Flour

- ½ Cup Almond Meal (or Sunflower Meal if nut allergy) ** To make it GF - swap quinoa flakes (pulsed to flour) or buckwheat** 

- 1 Tsp Baking Powder

- 1 Tsp Ground Ginger

- ¾ Tsp Cinnamon

- ¼ Tsp Nutmeg

- ¼ Tsp Clove (can omit)

- ¼ Tsp Salt

- ¾ - 1 Cup Milk of Choice

- 2 Eggs

- 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup

- 1 Tsp Vanilla Powder

- Ghee or Olive Oil for Frying


1. Heat pan with oil of choice. Cook the pancakes for 2 -3 minutes, until little bubbles appear on the surface and the underside is golden. Flip pancake and cook on the other side until pancake is cooked through. REPEAT.

2. Serve topped with your favourite chrissy spreads. INSPO: ‘Cherry Vanilla Jim Jam’,  pumpkin seeds, yoghurt and fresh seasonal fruit (berries, stone fruit YUM) and a drizzle of maple.
