Gingerbread Spice Pancakes

I cannot believe it is already the week before Christmas! How about you? This month really flew by and I have found myself scrambling to get everything done. I tried to start early this year, yet I still feel like I’m trying to catch up.

One thing I always try to do is to plan out my Christmas baking. It’s one of my favorite parts of the season. Sadly, I have yet to start on it (aside from recipes on the blog). I don’t know what has happened to me this year, but I am going to have to pull off an epic baking marathon! I don’t know about you, but I have to have all of my favorite treats to fully experience a holiday.

In the spirit of holiday baking, I have a super festive Christmas morning pancake recipe. These gingerbread spice pancakes lean a little on the dessert side (depending on how much glaze you drizzle them with), but they are sure to be a hit. They have all the flavors of the Holidays and whip up very quickly. That way you can spend more time opening gifts and sharing memories with your friends and family.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas & a blessed Holiday season. See you next year! šŸ˜‰
