Christmas Spiced Pancakes

Pancakes are a favourite in our household and Christmas is no exception. We have pancakes for breakfast every Christmas morning. We play around with ingredients & get creative, matching our breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt and of course, maple syrup. 

Every year I search for a new recipe, one to top off the one from last year. And now, thanks to Healthy Little Foodies, we have an extra special recipe up our sleeve this year. Christmas is all about the smells, tastes & sounds of the holiday so bringing ginger into the pancakes feels natural and tastes delicious! 

Tip: Add some dried cranberries into the batter for some extra Christmas magic!

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 medjool date (2 pitted dates)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tbsp & 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ginger puree
  • Coconut oil (for frying)
  • 1 large pear thinly sliced


  1. Blend the banana and date together until the date has fully broken down.
  2. Add all the other ingredients (apart from the oil and pear) and blend until fully combined.
  3. Cut Christmas shapes from the pear slices using small cookie cutters.
  4. Heat a little coconut oil in a non stick frying pan over a high heat. Reduced to a medium heat and add 1tbsp of mixture to the pan. Repeat until pan is full (I managed to fit 5 in at a time on my pan)
  5. Place a Christmas shaped pear onto each pancake and cook until ready to be flipped (around 1 min) Cook on the other side until done.
  6. Serve.
