2tbspavocado oil (or any neutral tasting oil)
1tbspfresh lemon juice
½inchpeeled and chopped fresh ginger
extra oil or butter for the griddle
Whisk the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, gingerbread spice in a mixing bowl.
Add the applesauce, maple syrup, molasses, lemon juice, vanilla extract, oil, and chopped fresh ginger to a blender. Puree until smooth. Add puree to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Let sit 15 minutes.
Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat - until small drops of water sizzle and evaporate within a few seconds. Brush the hot skillet with oil or vegan butter to coat.
Drop two tablespoons of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook pancakes - 3 at a time- in the hot pan until small bubbles form on the top. Flip once. The pancakes should be golden brown. Serve with butter, whipped cream, powdered sugar, or maple syrup, if desired.
TIP: To keep the cooked pancakes warm, place on a heat-safe plate in a 175ºF oven until ready to serve.
