Print Recipe 

Whipping up a batch of gingerbread pancakes is pretty easy. It’s just our regular pancake batter with a few special ingredients added. What gives these gingerbread pancakes that gorgeous golden brown color? A good amount of molasses, some cinnamon, allspice, and of course... ginger! Perfectly warm and cozy for that cold weather!

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time:  30 Minutes
Makes: 6-10 pancakes


  • 1 ½ cups of Otto’s Naturals – Cassava Flour (un-sifted before measuring, approximately 200-210 grams)
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons Otto's Naturals Grain-Free Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • Up to 1 ¾ cups whole milk or yogurt (or 1 cup coconut milk "buttermilk"* plus ¼ cup water for Paleo**)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • ⅓ cup molasses

*Coconut Milk Buttermilk – Put 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice in a 1 cup measuring cup and fill the rest of the way with coconut milk.  Let sit 5 minutes before using.

**This amount might vary slightly based on egg size and coconut milk brand. Check for a thick and pourable final batter consistency.


  1. Whisk dry ingredients together, then incorporate your wet ingredients. Let sit for at least 5 minutes. Batter will be slightly thicker than traditional pancake batter, but it should still be pourable.
  2. Cook on a nonstick pan or greased skillet over medium heat until the tops start to bubble and firm up a bit. (We usually make ours on an electric griddle set around 325-350°F.)
  3. Enjoy with a generous slathering of butter and some maple syrup!

Note: Since stovetop temperatures vary, check to make sure the underside is done before flipping. It will take a little longer to cook than a traditional pancake would. Don't let your pan smoke or the outside will overcook before the inside is finished.
