These pumpkin pancakes are surprisingly delicious and packed with excellent nutrition. They can be served as breakfast any day of the week, a "finger food" at a holiday party, or packed for a meal later in the day. These are so tasty that you won't even miss the maple syrup or powdered sugar, and you won't have to worry about those holiday temptations when you have such a delicious and healthy alternative. Any kitchen dummy can have these prepared in 15 minutes or less. Enjoy!
