Gingerbread Pancakes

Two favorite classics collide in this delicious gingerbread pancake recipe. Gingerbread isn’t just for Christmas anymore. Not when you love it as much as I do. Their perfectly comforting for any cold winter morning when you need something extra special to start your day. The whole wheat flour is a wonderful backdrop for the warm spices, brown sugar and molasses without being overly heavy. A sprinkling of lemon peel brightens everything right up. Chocolate chips are optional; and are sure to be a hit with kids. I imagine they’d make a charming Valentine’s Day breakfast; especially with a big dollop of whip cream and some super sweet heart sprinkles.
