pumpkin pancakes

i had a half a can of pumpkin puree sitting in my fridge and i was about to go on a wonderful trip to visit my best friend and meet her beautiful babies... what to do with the pumpkin so it doesn't go bad? pumpkin pancakes of course! 

3/4 cup of pumpkin puree
1 cup of milk {i used almond milk}
1 cup of flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbls sugar {i used agave nectar}
oats {i subbed some of the flour for extra oats}

mix all dry ingredients very well. add wet ingredients and mix again.
heat a non-stick skillet, add cooking spray or oil. 
pour your pancake batter and wait for it to bubble before flipping.
makes about 7-10 silver dollar size pancakes.
i enjoyed mine with a dollop of greek non-fat yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

i found an amazing new blog on pinterest called walk to the mailbox, it is the perfect place to get running inspiration if you are looking to enter any sort of long distance running race. also check out fit chick in the city.
