If you like pancakes, you'll love pumpkin pancakes. Throw in some chopped apple, or a handful of raisins or even some chopped cranberries if you like. Enjoy with warm maple syrup.

I had left over pumpkin from baking a cake and woke up this morning craving pancakes. These where quick, easy and delicious! I made a few changes to cut the calories down a little more. I substituted egg whites for the egg and applesauce for the oil. I also used more cinnamon to taste and added a hint of almond. I took other users advice and substituted pumpkin pie spice for the ginger. My batter in the end was quite thick. I like my pancakes light and fluffy so I added a little more non-fat milk. I'm really unsure how other users got a thin batter but my suggestion is to not over wisk. Don't use a mixer. Just wisk or stir.
