Gingerbread man are often reserved as a holiday dessert that is enjoyed as a snack or treat after meals, but this recipe by lifestyle blog She Knows creatively converts the spiced cookie into a pancake batter that can be used to create the edible men for breakfast. The dish replicates the same aromatic spices and zesty ginger flavors in a lighter format.

Gingerbread is a popular winter fare enjoyed by both adults and children, and this recipe expands the dessert into other meals with a lighter version of the batter. The pancakes are made using a mixture of flour, sugar, baking powder and eggs combined with molasses, ginger, and cinnamon to bring the richness of flavor to the liquid batter. Once the pancakes are cooked in a skillet, they can be cut into shape using a gingerbread man cookie cutter and decorated with whipped cream.
