These Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes are just the dreamiest and the fluffiest, and the cinnamon-y, ginger-y flavor will make you feel so warm and festive with the holiday spirit.

Not only that, it’s super easy to make using just a blender to make the batter, so it’s pretty quick to pull together if you want to feed a group. And each person can customize with whatever toppings that they like!

I topped mine with almond butter, sliced almonds, a little bit of maple syrup, and cinnamon. But you can add berries, yogurt, jam, granola, or even ice cream for some extra decadence. If you are looking for something simpler, the batter contains a banana so it’s already slightly sweet so it’s delicious on its own.

Hope you enjoy these yummy, fluffy Paleo Gingerbread Pancakes to celebrate your holiday mornings!

    I actually started to get so hungry when I first saw the image of these pancakes. That DRIZZLE! And I love the combination of banana and coconut flour for pancakes… plus all of those spices! So yummy.

          I can’t really say because it depends on the size of your pancakes. The entire recipe makes one serving though so you can base it off of that!

    Hi Jean,
    Thank you for this recipe! I made these pancakes this morning. The only change I made was substituting 1 1/2 teaspoons of Primal Palate’s gingerbread spice for the ginger and cinnamon but the batter was very thick, more like a cake or brownie batter. I added some water to thin it out and while the flavor was great, the texture was not quite right. I know that coconut flour absorbs liquids like crazy so 2 eggs and a tablespoon of molasses seemed like too few wet ingredients to me. I would like to try them again as we love pancakes and gingerbread. Any suggestions where I may have gone wrong? Thanks!

      So sorry that the consistency was off! Was your banana ripe enough? I can try this recipe again in the near future to test that the measurements aren’t off. The batter should be slightly thicker than your traditional pancake mix but not by much. Thanks for letting me know and hope to have a fix for you soon. đŸ™‚

        Thanks for your reply, Jean! If I try to make them again before you get the chance, I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes too.

          Hi Veronica – so sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I think I accidentally made a typo with the amount of coconut flour. I updated the recipe and this should solve the problem of the batter being too thick.

    In Austin there is a breakfast place called Kerbey Lane that is famous for their gingerbread pancakes . . . . it’s such a treat to get them, but I think I would much rather stay home and make these!

      It really depends on how big you make your pancakes. This whole recipe is 1 serving. I like smaller pancakes with taller stacks so I was able to make about 6.

    I am so excited I found this gingerbread pancake recipe! Do you think I can use ripe bananas that were previously frozen? I would love to make these pancakes ASAP!
