Orange-Zested Cranberry Pancakes

by | Read time: 1 minute

Resist the urge to be plain – especially when it comes to your breakfast. Variations and toppings are always welcome, and this gluten-free pancakes recipe takes the (pan)cake with the addition of dried and fresh cranberries and orange zest. Traditional maple syrup is a good fallback topping, but you might also love them smothered in almond butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Or, make a dessert of your cranberry pancakes and top them with whipped coconut cream. However you serve them, they’re a (flap)jackpot!
