Pancakes (and waffles) are a McJordan family favourite! We always make a batch on the weekend and then enjoy the leftovers during the week by popping them in the toaster to reheat them. These Gingerbread Protein Pancakes are mouth-watering delicious!
They are the perfect fluffy texture and super good-for-you too with a hit of protein and tons of fibre.
I added a scoop of Genuine Health's fermented organic protein powder in vanilla flavour to boost the nutrition and protein (use code JOYOUS20 to save). The fact that the protein is fermented essentially unlocks the nutrients making them bioavailable and amplifies the amino acids, vitamins and minerals, making them easier to digest.
If you're making these for your family, aside from how healthy they are, what you really want to know is how do they taste? Am I right? Well, just like the name says, they taste like gingerbread. That's thanks to ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. These four antioxidant-rich aromatic spices are essential for the gingerbread taste. These pancakes do not disappoint!
Once you add the mouthwatering topping of sauteed pears and coconut whipped cream, you'll be in absolute pancake heaven like I was when I made them last.
These are the perfect pancakes to celebrate the holiday season! That being said, you don't have to need a reason to make them. If you like yummy food and you want to treat yourself to pancakes this weekend, then definitely make these!

Be sure to make the topping with sauteed pears and coconut whipped cream, it really elevates them to a whole new joyous level! This is one of these recipe that as I'm writing this post up right now, I'm getting hungry!!
