Fluffy “spooky” pancakes 

What makes these pancakes spooky is eating them in “spooky season,” of course! Put the batter in Halloween-y cookie cutters if you have them.

1 cup flour of choice (GF blend works)

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup milk of choice (I use oat)

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp vanilla

1. In medium bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and mix with a spoon.

2. Mix liquids in a liquid measuring cup. 

3. Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture. Whisk.

4. Let batter rest for 5 minutes.

5. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter onto a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat.

6. When the tops begin to bubble, flip each pancake and cook until golden (after about 3 minutes). 

7. Serve warm with maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon, if you'd like. Enjoy!
