Gingerbread Pancakes

To follow our normal Saturday morning routine and by request from a 4 year old, we needed pancakes for breakfast.  I wanted to try these, but I wasn't sure how well they would be received by the boys. This is a perfect holiday treat or great for Christmas morning breakfast!

Gingerbread Pancakes-adapted from Debbi Does Dinner...Healthy
1 1/2 cups flour(I used whole wheat and ap)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 cup water

Combine dry ingredients and whisk together. Stir together wet ingredients and whisk into flour. Place batter on hot oiled griddle. Cook until bubbles form and flip until side is lightly browned.

**I mentioned above I wasn't sure how the boys would like these...but they LOVED them. Completely devoured one each! A even told me how great they are and he never says that! I was shocked! We liked them very much as well. Next time though I will double the recipe as it didn't make much. Enough for our family, but we like leftovers!
