Blender Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pear Pancakes

Gingerbread Pear Blender Pancakes.  Oh yeah baby.  These whole wheat gingerbread pancakes are SUCH a treat, and the best part?  They are whipped up in a blender in under 1 minute and taste absolutely delicious.   There’s about a 95% chance Santa’s getting pancakes instead of cookies this year!

We are just starting to get into the holiday spirit over here and what better way to start off this time of year than with a festive pancake recipe. These pancakes are ridiculously simple: the blender does all the heavy lifting for you! Thats right, one dish to clean (ok maybe two if you count your pan). Just add Bing Crosby and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Our Vitamix Ascent 3500 (my favourite Vitamix model) made quick work of these.  If you’re looking for a VERY special gift this year for the foodie on your list this is it!  We use ours pretty much every single day and consider it one of the best investments you can make for your kitchen.

The pear in this recipe adds some extra fibre and flavour, and the whole wheat flour (you can use spelt instead if you want) makes them even healthier.  You will want to be sure to cook these at a bit of a lower temperature vs other pancakes as the molasses makes them subject to burning quicker than other pancake recipes.

If you don’t have gingerbread spice in the house use this recipe to make your own: you can adjust the quantities by cutting it in half if you don’t need as much!

DIY Gingerbread Spice- what a sweet little zero-waste hostess gift!

True fact: we have a little bit of a pancake obsession in our house. If you’re looking for some fun other recipes to try with the kids (big or small!) I’d recommend trying these Banana Bread Pancakes, The Best Fluffy Vegan Pancakes, my classic Angel Cakes or these Apple Ring Pancakes!

Happy weekend!

    I had to whip these up this morning. We live next to a pear orchard in Lake Country and have an abundance of pears. We are obsessed with all your pancake recipes, so I knew this one had to be good. It turned out perfectly. So delicious and different from the others. You are truly the pancake queen. 🙂
