Gingerbread Pancakes

My kids like their pancakes in different shapes. Gingerbread men-shaped pancakes are always a hit with this batter.

1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup wheat flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups 2% buttermilk
1/4 cup molasses
2  egg whites
In a wide-mouth pitcher or large mixing bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt.

In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, molasses, and egg whites. Stir into the flour mix just until moistened.

Coat a nonstick griddle or large skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. For each pancake, pour or ladle about 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the pancakes are bubbly and slightly dry around the edges. Turn over and cook briefly until golden. Serve immediately.
