Whole Wheat Gingerbread Pancake Puffs

These vegan gingerbread pancake puffs made with whole wheat is the amazing and perfect breakfast for the holidays! They taste insanely delicious and warm you up with spices perfect for the season. Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses, and molasses along with maple syrup.......absolutely delicious! So, What are you waiting for? Bring out your ebelskiver or appe or kuzhipaniyram pan and enjoy this breakfast with family!

This is easy to prepare and a very healthy breakfast.  Pancake puffs are made in ebelskiver pan. We call that as kuzhipaniyaram pan or appe pan. Traditionally, we make Vegan, Gluten-free rice Kuzhipaniyaram using the pan. Whole Wheat Appam is a common traditional dish in our cuisine that is made during festivals that is deep fried, though it can be made in appe pan too. But with the gingerbread flavors, they are amazing breakfast too! 

These are amazing to serve with maple syrup on the side. But more inviting when sprinkled with powdered sugar and/or a drizzle with maple syrup. Personally dunking a bite in maple syrup is divine! And it is guaranteed that you can't stop with that bite. The scintillating flavors adding warmth will lead you to the next bite! Just amazing!

The amazing flavor profile is enough to convince anyone to have this everyday! This recipe uses whole wheat but regular flour can also be used. If you do not have this pan, make it into pancakes or waffles. These are delicious in that form too.

These are wonderful treats for holidays! I am linking this to Blogging Marathon, Foodie Monday Blog Hop,  and Full Plate Thursday.
