    Serves: 10

    • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice or pumpkin pie spice (see note)
    • 3 eggs

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:19min 

    1. Mix flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, salt, bicarbonate of soda and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl.
    2. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl until smooth. Mix in milk, treacle, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Stir in flour mixture until pancake batter is combined; a few lumps are okay.
    3. Grease a non-stick pan or griddle lightly with oil; preheat over medium-low heat.
    4. Drop pancake batter by large spoonfuls onto the pan and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining pancake batter.


    Pumpkin pie spice is a combination of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves; in a pinch you can use mixed spice, or a pinch each of the individual spices.

    Add some chopped walnuts and maple syrup for a special treat. Molasses (unsulphured) makes these pancakes a good for you treat and you won't need much syrup. Cook on a lwer temperature for a little longer. Cook about 4 minutes then flip and cook for an about 3 more minutes. Molassess is a good source of Potasium, Magnesium and Iron  -  27 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy. Cook on a lower heat because of the molasses.  -  26 Nov 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
