Gluten Free Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze

I usually set aside the mornings on the weekends to wipe up a delicious breakfast, not my standard Monday through Friday meal, cereal or yogurt. Typically I opt for waffles, pancakes, french toast, or lately my breakfast egg sandwich, but last weekend I was craving something extra sugary :) Surprise, surprise! I had purchased Wholesome Chow at my local Whole Foods and was excited to try a new brand on a classic breakfast favorite  I don't know why, but I have yet to find an amazing gluten free cinnamon roll, (any suggestions are welcome) so when I came across this recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes by Recipe Girl, I felt somewhat giddy, as this could be the perfect opportunity to put those cinnamon roll dreams aside (for now at least). 

Wholesome Chow makes the world's only Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten Free & Vegan Baking Mixes.  Their entire baking product line is free of gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, eggs, peanuts, soy and tree nuts. I followed Wholesome Chow's Buttermilk pancake recipe below and online HERE, and incorporated the cinnamon filling and cream cheese glaze recipes on Recipe Girl's website. Be sure to check out Recipe Girl's Tips as she includes some helpful details that make the difference from a kitchen disaster and a delicious breakfast treat.

Buttermilk Pancakes

1 cup Milk (Non-Dairy or Dairy)
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar OR 1 egg
Oil or Cooking Spray
1.  Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray or 1 tbsp oil. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
2.  Whisk all ingredients until blended. Pour 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle.
3.  Cook until edges are golden and crisp. Flip and repeat. Center should become cooked through.
