Vegan Gingerbread Pancakes

This is what you do when your husband and your brother are busy moving 2 of 5 couches out of your living room.

This is what you do when your parents are on a European vacation and aren’t around to entertain your children who can’t play outside because it’s freezing.

This is what you do when your son was almost in tears at breakfast because you had apparently told him the day before that he could have pancakes the following morning and then you forgot and served him oatmeal. Unacceptable.

This is what you do when you want your house to smell like gingerbread, but you don’t want to wait for real gingerbread. Well, this, or you buy a candle.

This is supposed to be a stocking but J Man referred to it as, and I quote, “a boot full of trash.”

Thanks buddy. Good to know my efforts are appreciated.

We made gingerbread pancakes for dinner, much to Unk C’s dismay. He’s not a “breakfast for dinner” fan. However, I’d like to point out that he ate a veggie omelette, roasted potatoes and sausage links AND still tried a pancake and rated it “good”. That might seem like a pretty mellow answer. Unk C is a mellow guy. I was pleased with “good.”

This picture is me asking Miss Rae to show me how good the pancakes were. Not sure if this denotes a positive or negative experience.

This is how you really show someone that you love their cooking: just let the food fall out of your mouth.

And this is the evidence I need that my children need etiquette classes. Oh well. At least my house smells good.

  1. These look super yummy! And they hold together like that without eggs? Is the secret the flax? I’m impressed!
